On Feb. 15, Long Beach High School students and teachers faced off in the second annual Student-Faculty Basketball Game. The event was organized by students Kate Hanson, Lily Yoemans, Jennifer Stern, Monica Spinelli, Paris Rubin and Rachel Cheung for their Creativity, Activity and Service project through the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

The game served as a fundraiser for the EB Research Partnership, a nonprofit organization committed to advancing treatments and finding a cure for the rare and life-threatening condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa. The initiative was a great success, raising approximately $3,500 for EB and culminating in a 38-36 victory for the students.
