Support athletics in Metro Schools with a full day of throwback basketball

It's that time again! This weekend, high school hoopsters will honor the past and help raise money for athletics in Metro Schools at the Third Annual FANS Retro Classic high school basketball event. Teams from McGavock, MLK, Hillwood, Pearl-Cohn, East Nashville Magnet and Hunters Lane will wear throwback uniforms from bygone schools as they face off in a full day of basketball action. You will want to be there for a special appearance by the Madison Rams in the famed polka dot uniforms of the 1960s.

The schedule of games:

  • McGavock (dressed as DuPont High) vs. MLK (dressed as Cameron High)
  • Hillwood (dressed as Bellevue High) vs Pearl-Cohn (dressed as Pearl High)
  • East Nashville (dressed as Litton High) vs Hunters Lane (dressed as North High)

This year's Retro Classic will be played this Saturday, January 3, at the old Cohn High gym, 4805 Park Avenue. Games start at 2:00pm. Tickets are available at the door for $6 and proceeds benefit The Foundation for Athletics in Nashville Schools.
