On June 23, teams of alumni from the four Heights middle schools held a Middle School Grudge Match kickball game. Participating were teams from Wiley, Monticello, Roxboro, and Roosevelt (Roosevelt Junior High school was torn down in the late 1970s and replaced by Boulevard Elementary School).
The tournament was held at Forest Hills Park and attracted close to 200 Heights alumni from the class of 1974 to the present. Family and friends joined in the festivities with food, games and water balloon fights. Second-time champion Team Roxboro beat Team Wiley 1-0 in the hard-fought championship game.
