The occasion are a pair of alumni games, set for Saturday evening.
The girls game tips off at approximately 5:30 p.m. while former Ely boys basketball players will follow at 7 p.m.

Shining on the home course

by Tom Coombe
The Ely Nordic Wolves were in familiar territory and made the most of it.
Sophomore all-stater Jasper Johnston dominated the boys race and Ely swept to the boys title during the ski teams’ home-opening meet, held Dec. 13 at Hidden Valley.
Johnston was one of four Wolves in the top-10 of the boys standings while Ely’s Zoe Devine and Kalyssa Eilrich both bagged top-10 finishes among the girls.
Ely was first among five boys teams and the girls took third at an event that brought about 200 skiers to town.
While the Wolves are perennial contenders in Section 7, Ely Head Coach Paula Anderson cautioned against putting too much stock in the results of the early-season encounter, given the absence of many of the top skiers from opposing section contenders.
