Entry deadline for Valley Hooops is fast approaching.
Harry Beckous, director of the three-on-three basketball tournament at University City, said entries must be postmarked by Wednesday. The cost is $60 per team.
Trophies and T-shirts will be awarded to each division winner.
Teams are assured a minimum of three games, including consolation contests in the double-elimination fund-raiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Valley YMCA.
“Things are going really well,” he said. “Everything is donated but the T-shirts, and I got a good price on those. I couldn’t be happier.”
Eight concessions have been confirmed for the event.
“There will be plenty of food,” said Beckous.
Rather than acting as court monitors, officials on each court will call fouls.
Valley Hooops could always use volunteers, said Beckous, and there is room for teams.
But entry forms must be submitted quickly.
All-Valley cross country today
The 17th annual All-Valley cross country meet will be run at Liberty Lake County Park beginning at 9 a.m.
The initial race is for freshmen and sophomore girls, followed at half-hour intervals by the freshmen and sophomore boys, junior and senior girls, junior and senior boys, a one-mile fun run, and an alumni-coaches race.
Valley schools plus Lake City of Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls will participate.
The meet will be run without East Valley’s girls, who are competing in Oregon this weekend.
But the University and Central Valley girls teams, who are among Greater Spokane League favorites, and West Valley and East Valley boys, who expect to contend in the Frontier League, will be there.
