On Tuesday, Nov. 26, Chariton High School will be the site of the Iowa High School Athletic Association’s “Pride Basketball Challenge.”

That evening, four teams will enter the Charger Dome to play two full-game scrimmages. The games will pit two power conferences against one another as the Little Hawkeye and the South Central Conference battle for early season bragging rights!

At 6 p.m., Norwalk plays Knoxville and at 8 p.m. Indianola plays host to Chariton.

The Iowa Pride Challenge scrimmage’s theme is “community service.” Working with local students and the SPLASH organization, this year’s efforts will benefit the proposed community Splash Pad to be built at the Vredenburg-Chariton Family Aquatic Center.

One hundred percent of the funds from ticket sales and other fundraisers that evening will go directly toward the Splash Pad project.

In addition to the fundraising efforts for the Splash Pad, Hy-Vee will be on hand that evening to provide flu shots for $30 (or free with approved insurance.) Hy-Vee’s Sarah Peterson will be present to promote and provide ideas for healthy snack and meal options.
