Perspectives Athletics V5I3, Look Ahead to 2015-2016

By Barry Temkin

Perspectives Charter Schools student-athletes, coaches and fans will have some exciting events to look forward to next fall and winter.

The Perspectives football team will open its 2016 season at 7:15 p.m. Aug. 28 against Hansberry College Prep. The contest will be notable for two reasons: It will take place at the University of Chicago’s Stagg Field, and it will be a “blackout” game, with spectators being encouraged to wear black attire.

“It’s a nice way to start the season,” Perspectives Director of Athletics & Programs Vinay Mullick said.

On Oct. 3, PCS will play host to the second annual Warrior Invitational volleyball tournament at the Auburn Gresham campus. The field will be eight Chicago charter schools, including Perspectives’ three varsity programs—PLA/Tech, MSA and Joslin.

Perspectives’ girls basketball teams, PLA/Tech and MSA/Joslin, will compete for the second consecutive season in the Northside College Prep holiday tournament in December.

The PLA/Tech boys basketball team will make its fourth appearance in the prestigious Rich South McDipper tournament in December. The MSA/Joslin boys will play in the Hinsdale Central holiday tournament, which though in its debut season will be one of the top tournaments in the state.
