The 58th annual Middle School Basketball Tournament is approaching. This event will be occurring February 25th and 26th. There will be 16 teams playing, 8 boys teams and 8 girls teams. This event always brings in many people and the bleachers are always full of spectators. There are several awards given at the end of the tournament, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Consolation, Sportsmanship, and All-star. The All-star awards are given to individual players from each boys and girls teams. The All-stars are voted by the coaches. There was no tournament last year due to Covid which has been the only time it has ever skipped a year in the last 58 years. The concession stands will be open and there will be a table that will sell loads of candy and pizza.  Also, there will be fundraisers going on such as Huntington apparel, face painting, and more. The staff and students put in a lot of time and effort to make this event a success. We hope to see you all cheering for our middle school teams and support our community and school.
