Lora dons Massaponax colors after losing wager over season opener

Spotsylania School Board member Ray Lora showed up for tonight’s School Board meeting dressed uncharacteristically in black and teal.

Turns out he lost a wager to board colleague Amanda Blalock based on Friday night’s football opener between Courtland and Massaponax high schools.

Massaponax won as Blalock predicted so Lora wore that school’s colors.

Had Courtland prevailed, Blalock had promised to wear the Cougars’ colors tonight.

Instead, she and Lora are dressed in coordinating outfits that celebrate the Massaponax team’s victory over the county rival.

Good sportsmanship, an attribute worth demonstrating to students.
