St. Matthew Lutheran School students had a sky-high, interactive assembly on Tuesday.
Members of the Chicago Sky WNBA team brought their Hoops for Health program to the Hawthorn Woods school. Player Elena Delle Donne, strength and conditioning coach Ann Crosby and the team's mascot, Sky Guy, talked about healthy lifestyles, healthy choices and fitness.
The school's 90 students and members of the Lake Zurich High School girls varsity basketball team participated in the 45-minute program. Sky Guy led the students in warm-up exercises, followed by basketball relays.
School principal Grant Seaholm arranged the visit through the Sky's marketing director and media department.
"I am hoping the students learn about healthy lifestyles and how to make good decisions regarding exercise, healthy choices and fitness," Seaholm said.
The Sky's first home game of the season is May 16 at Allstate Arena. For more information about the Sky visit www.chicagosky.net.
