East Side holds father-son “Shoot-Out”

East Side recently held a father-son basketball “shoot out,” sponsored by the Chronic Disease Grant Team, who are providing activities to promote activities to reduce obesity, lower blood pressure and diabetes in our county. UT Extension, with the help of Coordinated School Health and the Health Department, hosted the event. Forty to 50 East Side students and their fathers or adult partners shot hoops for two minutes each to see who could shoot the most hoops!
