MOUTH OF WILSON -- Oak Hill Academy, home of the nationally acclaimed Warriors basketball team, will host a Meet the Gold Team fundraising event on Sunday, Feb. 28 at 3 p.m. on the Oak Hill campus.
The event will revolve around the Warriors’ home game with Mountain State Academy. For a $100 tax-deductible donation per person, participants will receive admission to the game with reserved seating, admission to a reception following the game, a program autographed by the players, an Oak Hill Academy t-shirt, photo opportunities with the team and a chance to win an autographed game ball. The event is limited to the first 50 people to reserve a seat. The Warriors are currently ranked No. 7 in the USA Super 25 with a 21-2 record. The team’s alumni directory is a who’s-who of big-time basketball with such names as Carmelo Anthony, William Avery, Steve Blake, Eric Devendorf, Justin Gray, Rod Strickland, Jerry Stackhouse, Ty Lawson, Rajon Rondo and Kevin Durant. The OHA program has finished the season with the No. 1 national ranking eight times, including four of the last six seasons, and is one win shy of No. 1,000 in the program’s history. Oak Hill has had more than 140 players sign with Division I programs, and more than 20 have been drafted into the NBA.
