Court Jesters to Play Dream Team at Grand Opening

The Grand Opening of the new Garrett College gymnasium – CARC Phase 2 – is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13, when the Court Jesters Comedy Basketball Team will take on the Garrett County Dream Team as part of the Garrett College 2012 Alumni Homecoming. The game, which will begin at 8 p.m. in the Community Aquatic and Recreation Complex (CARC) on the McHenry campus, will be open to the public as a fund-raiser for the Garrett College Athletic Department.

“This event promises to be very entertaining for all ages. The Court Jesters are well-known for their comedic antics on the basketball court,” said Shawn Noel, director of the CARC and of GC Athletics. Head Basketball Coach Denis Gibson is lining up the members of the Garrett County Dream Team for the game. “All I will say right now is that there will be some very familiar faces on the court to take on the Jesters and not everyone is going to be in the best athletic condition of his life,” he said with a smile.

During the basketball game half-time, Brenda Brosnihan’s troupe will perform their fund-raising “Bounce Back” dance to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network and Cindy’s Fund.
