There was a venue change this year, but spectators still enjoyed all of the thrills, spills and craziness of donkey basketball. The Mariposa FFA held its annual event on March 10 at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds, rather than holding it at the school’s newly refurbished gym. Teachers and students competed in basketball while riding atop donkeys. The event raises funds for the FFA program and always generates many smiles and laughs. Shown above with the ball is MCHS senior Jake Swift.
