Our girls and boys middle school basketball teams went to Iron Five tournament at Arizona School for the Deaf & Blind in Tuscon, Arizona during Presidents’ Day weekend. It came out to be a rewarding experience for them. During their stay there, they were able to visit Old Tuscon, University of Arizona Basketball Hall of Fame, and see countless cactuses. Some of them rode in the airplane for the first time.
Both teams did very well in the tournament. The boys won first place while the girls came in second place. Brady Perry, John Werner and Cassidy Perry were selected on all-tournament team.
The players had the opportunity to take a short hike on a mountain which had a beautiful view of Tuscon before they returned home.
Congratulations to all.
