Basketball team’s 10-year reunion, ceremony part of special Saturday here

The Navarro College family, NC basketball fans and Corsicana citizens are encouraged to come about 4 pm Saturday to the Wolens Special Events Center.

Two special events will occur.

First, another important Region XIV East Zone men’s basketball game between the Navarro Bulldogs (16-8/9-4) and the Paris Dragons (17-5/10-2).  The teams are two of the four separated by two games in the crowded, congested league race.

Second is a halftime ceremony for Navarro’s 2003-04 basketball team that will be reuniting on the 10th-anniversary weekend of its tragic van accident near Paris.

Coaches Lewis Orr, Johnny Estelle, and as many as 12 players from the 2003-04 team have given confirmation and are expected to be here for the ceremony and reunion.

Administrators from Navarro and Paris at the time of the February 9, 2004 accident also will be here.
