NHS Intramural Basketball Tourney Begins March 7
The annual Intramural Basketball Tournament sponsored by Dorothy Norman Chapter of National Honor Society will begin Thursday, March 7, with games continuing March 8, and March 12.
Games for the third and fourth grade teams will be played in the middle school gym beginning at 5:30 p.m. Fifth and sixth grade games will be played in the high school gym beginning at 5:45 p.m.
Since games will be played simultaneously in the middle school and high school gyms, check brackets for starting times and location.
Brackets were distributed to players at the last regular game on Feb. 16. Extra copies of the brackets will be available in each school office.
Twenty-four teams from two grade divisions – grades three and four and grades five through six – will compete for first place medals.
Admission will be $2.50 for adults and $1 for school age children/students. District passes, senior citizen passes and student activity passes will not be honored at this event because all proceeds from admissions will go toward National Honor Society’s Tracy Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund. NHS awards $2,000 in scholarships each spring honoring Tracy Murphy.
During the past 23 years, the Ava NHS Chapter has awarded $50,000 in scholarships to NHS members.
