Sixty Forest Grove students got the experience of a lifetime on March 17 when they got to see the Miami Heat play at the American Airlines Arena. After the game, students were able to go on the court and take a shot from the free throw line just like the players do!

All of these well-deserving students will write about their experience at the game to share with the rest of the Bulldog family.
