The men's basketball team hosted their 1st Annual Ron Schaffer Alumni Game on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
Ron Schaffer was an integral part of the Lake Michigan College men's basketball team not only as a former player but also as an assistant coach. He was a huge part of the program by maintaining statistics for the men, and giving support to the players and coaches. This game is to honor the dedication, loyalty, and positivity that Ron brought to all student athletes and coaches on and off the court.
It was an exciting night as the old guard took on the present. During the half time, Gregg Schaffer spoke on behalf of the Schaffer family to support this amazing event. It was also a time where former athletes spoke about their favorite "Uncle" Ron memories.
The alumni took to the court with speed and gave the present team strong competition. This game not only allowed the former players a chance to compete as Red Hawks, but it enabled the current players a time to ask for advice and guidance. It was the old guard that prevailed but in the end the men came together as family.
