Bulls Honor Coaches, Officials; Elk Grove Baseball Camp Is Set

They could be called the ruling class of high school sports.

They are the coaches who make the team decisions.

They are the officials who make the game decisions.

They may not always be in agreement, but there's a mutual respect between the two groups - most of the time.

High school coaches and officials will come in peace and join forces on Monday, Dec. 13 at the United Center.

The Bulls and NBA will recognize Illinois High School Association coaches and sports officials on Dec. 13 when Chicago takes on the Dallas Mavericks.

In cooperation with the Bulls, the event is jointly sponsored by the Illinois Coaches Association (ICA) and Inter-Association Council of Athletic Officials (IACAO).

As part of the special night, a limited number of coaches and officials will be able to attend a 6 p.m. United Center meeting featuring Jerry Markbreit, former NFL official who worked four Super Bowls.

Bulls radio announcers Tom Dore and Johnny Kerr will greet the coaches and officials, and members of the Bulls Operations Staff also will attend.

Coaches, sports officials, their family and friends are eligible to purchase half-price tickets to the game.

Ticket order forms and information is available on-line at www.bulls.com under Group Events. You also may call the Bulls at (312) 455-4000 to request tickets.
