Re: 22nd Annual Roundball Classic, Sponsored by The Clarion Inn
The 22nd Annual Roundball Classic has been set for Dec. 6-7-8 with eight different schools participating this season.
Sponsored by The Clarion Inn, the host schools include Garden City High School, Holcomb High School and Scott City High School.
Other participating schools include Liberal, Dumas, Texas (girls only), Dalhart, Texas (boys only), Palmer Ridge, Colo., Coronado, Colo., and Wichita Trinity Academy.
The Thursday and Friday schedule will remain the same for the three host schools as Garden City will host Coronado for girls and boys games at The Garden, Holcomb will host Palmer Ridge, Colo., while Scott City entertains Wichita Trinity in Thursday contests. Liberal will play its Friday games at home with the girls facing Dumas, Texas and the boys taking on Dalhart, Texas. All games will be at 6 and 7:30 p.m.
Friday’s schedule will see Garden City hosting Palmer Ridge, Holcomb facing Dumas (girls) and Dalhart (boys) and Scott City taking on Coronado. Liberal’s girls and boys will play Wichita Trinity in games scheduled for the Perryman Athletic Complex’s Conestoga Arena at Garden City Community College. Game times again will be at 6 and 7:30 p.m.
Saturday’s final day will see all games played at The Garden on the campus of Garden City High School. The final day extravaganza will begin at 11 a.m. with Wichita Trinity facing Palmer Ridge in girls in the GCHS Auxiliary gym and Dalhart playing Coronado’s boys in the main gym.
In 12:45 p.m. battles, it will be Dumas facing Coronado’s girls in the auxiliary gym and Wichita Trinity taking on Palmer Ridge in the boys game in the main gym.
Then, it will be single games all in The Garden with a 2:30 p.m. tipoff for the Scott City girls facing Liberal as both teams were state tournament entrants a year ago in Class 4A-II and 5A. The 4:15 p.m. game will pit the host Garden City Lady Buffaloes against Finney County rival Holcomb, followed by a 6 p.m. game between the Scott City and Liberal boys. The tourney’s finale will be at 7:45 p.m. between Garden City and Holcomb.
