COLLEGE PLACE – The Walla Walla Valley Academy AcroKnights team has been invited to perform during halftime at the Portland Trail Blazers game on March 20, as the Blazers play the Washington Wizards.
The AcroKnights are selling discounted tickets to that game as part of a fundraiser to support trips, mission work and performances. Ticket prices are: $22. To purchase tickets or to make a donation, contact Pam Fry at 525-1050 or Scott Shafer at 386-8552.
AcroKnights began 19 years ago under the direction of Schafer, the athletic director at WWVA. The AcroKnights are a team of high school students who perform acrobatics using each other as props instead of equipment.
The team also performs for school assemblies, at the Balloon Stampede, and at halftime shows for the University of Washington, Portland State University and Eastern Washington.
