Chase County’s boys’ and girls’ basketball teams will be in Sidney again this year for its holiday tournament.
The Cabela’s Holiday Basketball Shootout will be held Dec. 28-30 at Sidney’s high school and middle school gyms.
Chase County’s first opponent on Monday, Dec. 28, in both the boys’ and girls’ games will be Wheatland, Wyo. The girls tip off at 2 p.m., while the boys will play at 3:45 p.m., both in the middle school gym.
A win or loss the first day for the Longhorn teams will send them into 2 and 3:45 p.m. contests the next day, as well. The championship and consolation games are on Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Other teams in the tourney include Sidney, Hershey, Gothenburg, Gering, along with Torrington and Laramie from Wyoming.
Medals will be awarded to players on the first, second and third place teams.
The Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) has set this year’s five-day practice/competition moratorium from Dec. 23-27.
