Tickets for the basketball game this Friday are available in the finance office or Hy-Vee. Adult tickets cost $7 and student tickets cost $5.

No student or staff ID’s or passes will be accepted, and tickets can be purchased in advance this week until Thursday.

The girls game starts at 6:30 p.m. The boys game starts at 8:00 p.m.

Fans have to enter the fieldhouse through the East doors, which open at 5:30 p.m. Seating will be behind each goals with LHS students at the south goal.

Free parking is available in lots near the field house, but it will cost money to park in the garage.
