Marion Treblemakers hoping to take bite out of New York apple
by Staff report · October 12th, 2017

On Sunday, October 15, beginning at 6 p.m., a group of 22 Marion Independent School District teachers, known as the Marion Treblemakers, will be taking extra-curricular activity to a whole new level.

During the Marion Music Booster's fundraising basketball event, the MISD will battle the Harlem Wizards from New York in an exhibition game in the high school gymnasium. The Marion player line-up consists of Jonathan Dyrland, Charles Oldenkamp, Jonathan Mitchell, Tim Lovell, Corby Laube, Aaron Blech, Garrette Williams, Roxanne Paulsen, Phil Cochran, David Anderson, Karl Scherbring, Tom Hauck, Kevin Hahn, Joe Fontenot, Lee Thompson, Jason Haag, Eric Hauschildt, Cory Meth, Nicole Harmer, Kevin Hahn, and Otto Getz.

During the game, the MISD dream-team will have home-court advantage, and they may need it. Because according to their website, these "Big Apple" players have been dazzling basketball audiences for over half a century.

It all "started in 1962 by New York sports promoter Howie Davis. Now celebrating 54 years of Wizardry, he envisioned a show and organization that would put a different spin on show basketball. The Wizards are a show basketball entity delivering wildly successful fundraiser events for schools and nonprofits, last season alone playing in over 400 communities across the USA, while raising over $2 million." []

According to, ticket prices start at $10 for students and $12 for adults. "You may purchase your tickets at VMS, home football, home volleyball games or online."

Also, concession food specials, souvenirs, and music will be available at 5 p.m. "We anticipate it will be the best entertainment all year so far. The Harlem Wizards will stay as long as needed after the game, signing autographs, so no one will leave disappointed." []
