MISKO'S Extra-ORD-inary BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT 2013
The 1st Annual MISKO’S Extra-ORD-inary Youth Basketball Tournament was held at Ord High School on Saturday, February 23, 2013. The Ord Sports Boosters organized the event that brought together over 300 aspiring basketball players, 32 teams, and many families from 11 surrounding communities. The games focused on the development of the sport of basketball through fundamentals, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. Highlights included precise passing, super shooting, and the occasional buzzer beater but mostly great community fellowship centered on what makes all communities great…our youth.
Thank you to all community members that volunteered throughout the day to officiate games, manage the score table, operate the score clock, work in the concession stand, collect admissions, sale t-shirts, keep the facility clean and operational, and transform a youth basketball tournament into a magnificent site for NSAA sanctioned District Basketball Finals.
Next year’s 2nd Annual MISKO’S Extra-ORD-inary Youth Basketball Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, March 1st and Sunday, March 2nd, 2014. (The weekend between NSSA State Wrestling Championships and NSAA State Girls Basketball Championships.)
