Everett Community College Athletic Director Garet Studer coordinated this charity basketball game on the same day that the Everett CC Trojans and Edmonds CC Tritons compete for the Everett/Edmonds Rivalry Trophy, known as the “T” Trophy.
“We wanted to come up with a fun and creative way to host a local heroes night, and that evolved into a charity basketball game between the Everett Fire Department and the South Snohomish County Fire Department,” he said. “When we were looking at dates to host the game, and we saw a perfect opportunity on the day that we hosted Edmonds CC which added even more of a community feel to our big rivalry game.”
