VERSAILLES – Versailles honored Greenville and Versailles Fire and Rescue Departments with ‘A Salute to Our First Responders’ at halftime of the Wednesday night varsity boys basketball game between the Versailles Tigers and the Greenville Green Wave.
The Versailles firefighters hosted the Greenville firemen in a spirited halftime game of dodgeball won by the Greenville dodgeballers.
Three Versailles alumni played for the Greenville Firefighters; Kevin Subler, Jacob Garrison and Grant Keller.
Subler, a Captain with the Greenville Fire Department is a 1998 graduate of Versailles High School.
“It was a lot of fun,” said Captain Subler. “What is great about it, two fellas on my crew graduated from Versailles. We all work together, they got assigned to my shift which is really awesome so it’s like being at a home game.”
Versailles provided the sale of cheeseburgers and fries along with a 50/50 drawing with proceeds going to Fire and Rescue.
And with the Greenville Firefighters win in hand, Captain Subler said with a smile; “that was all just smoke and mirrors and fun – the rest of it is what really matters it is getting donations to help with local projects.”
