SCPA Basketball Team Wins Bet to Shave Coach’s Head


If the Varsity Boy’s Basketball team at the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) managed to win at least 15 games this past season, they could shave off all the hair of Assistant Coach Jeff New. That was the promise made by New to his team, and one on which he had to make good following the team’s successful 15-2 season.

The team, along with the entire senior class and one kindergarten class, gathered in the SCPA gymnasium on Thursday, February 24, to separate New from all his hair, including his signature ponytail. New will donate his hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program, which makes real hair wigs for cancer survivors.
