This weekend, Glasgow High School will host it’s first Class ‘C’ Showcase Basketball Tournament. The tournament will feature boys and girls basketball from Glasgow and surrounding communities as well as schools from outside the area such.
Willie Thibault, activities director for Glasgow High, said an event like this has been discussed in previous years.
“It’s something I’ve talked about for a couple of years,” Thibault said. It’s an opportunity for schools in our area to play schools outside of the area.”
Not only does Thibault believe an event like this can benefit the student-athletes, but also the community at large.
“Glasgow is a great hosting community,” Thibault said. “We have a lot of businesses that cater to these type of events.”
This is the first year that Glasgow will host this basketball tournament and if successful, Thibault predicts it won’t be the last.
The tournament starts Friday at Noon. For ticket information contact Glasgow High School for more details.
