Community Helps Celebrate Benton Harbor Tigers Deep Playoff Runs

Tiger Pride ran wild Thursday as Benton Harbor High School hosted a celebration for its girls and boys basketball teams. Mayor James Hightower and Superintendent Dr. Leonard Seawood spoke at the rally. Principal Timothy Reese, who is in his first year at the high school, said it was an "awesome experience."



Reese was born and raised in Battle Creek, and reminisced about his days traveling to Benton Harbor as a student to play basketball.



The Benton Harbor boys finished the season state runner up in Class B. The girls were district champions and reached the regional final. During the after-school rally, Boys Varsity Coach Corey Sterling was given an honorary Key to the City by Mayor Hightower. Athletic Booster Club President Marty Mason also spoke. The Club and United Federal Credit Union were instrumental in raising money to buy new scoreboards for the high school gym. Those were on display during the celebration.
