More than a dozen Twin Harbors basketball teams will be spending part of their holiday breaks participating in basketball tournaments next weekend.
Raymond, Willapa Valley and North Beach will again host coed holiday tournaments. Hoquiam, Montesano and South Bend teams will be participating in those events.
The Grizzlies and Bulldogs will join host Morton/White Pass and host Raymond in the Raymond Coed New Year’s Classic on Friday and Saturday. Pairings are pre-determined, with no champions crowned.
That will also be the case for Willapa Valley’s Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Classic on Friday and Saturday. South Bend, Concrete and Pe Ell teams will join the host Vikings in that event.
North Beach’s Holidays With the Hyaks event, however, will return to a traditional tournament structure, with boys and girls championship games planned for Saturday. That tourney opens Friday.
Wishkah’s boys will compete in the Tenino Christmas Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
There will also be a smattering of regular-season contests over the weekend. Aberdeen, for example, will be home against Shelton in six-game program Saturday at Sam Benn Gym. The girls varsity game is scheduled for 5:15 p.m., with the boys to follow.
