The passing of the baton from football to basketball season in Charles City is the Black and Orange Blowout event each year. This Friday, November 22nd, at 7 p.m. that seasonal transition will be taking place. The JV and varsity Comet boys and girls teams will hold their scrimmages, but there will also be basketball for all ages.
There is no admission for the game but the school system encourages you to bring canned foods as an alternative admission for the Student Food Pantry.
Both the 7th and 8th grade teams start practicing today as basketball season starts to take-off.
