Inaugural 3 on 3 tourney a hit

The inaugural Maple Park 3 on 3 basketball tournament Sept. 2 was a resounding success with more than 100 boys and girls participating.

Teams were organized by grade level: K-4, Grade 5-8, Girls Grade 9-12, Boys Grade 9-12 and 19-plus. The tournament began with round-robin play within each division. It was continuous action with two basketball courts being used at the same time. Each game was five minutes in duration and had a referee. They were highly competitive and intense.

The intensity level rose a notch in the playoff games. Parents and fans were treated to exciting, continuous action that the game of 3 on 3 provides. It was a great day of basketball with sportsmanship displayed by all participants. Congratulations to the following champions of each division:
