Hooves and hoops: Donkey basketball raises funds for MCE sports

January 15, 2019

CUSTER — Sitting on a bareback donkey and shooting for a basketball hoop isn’t easy, but it is amusing.

After decades, donkey basketball returned to Mason County Eastern Schools during a fundraiser event Saturday night, hosted by the MCE Equestrian Team.

The event included three short games of four-on-four basketball, with the players riding live donkeys brought to Custer by the Ohio-based company Buckeye Donkey Ball. Four teams competed, and all the players were students, faculty, staff or alumni of MCE.
