FRUITPORT — Fruitport used Thursday night’s game against Fruitport Calvary Christian to honor Trojans past and present by hosting a “Pack the Barn” event. The Barn is the name of Fruitport’s old gym where they used to play their basketball games. All Fruitport basketball alumni were invited to attend the game for free and after the game they held a special presentation honoring Fruitport basketball legend Bob Sarachman and current Fruitport player Gavin Fisher.

“Ken Erny orchestrated all of this and does a great job with events like this,” Sarachman said. “It was great coming back here. I had never met Gavin Fisher. I try to keep an eye on some of the kids, but I didn’t know him. It’s nice to finally get a chance to meet him and talk to him.”
