MV Rec tournament set for March 26-28


RUMFORD – Mountain Valley High School Athletic Boosters will again be sponsoring the annual Mountain Valley Rec Basketball Tournament from Friday, March 26 to Sunday, March 28. This is the former Mike’s/Sarge’s Sports Pub ‘N’ Grub Tournament that took place in Rangeley beginning in the early 1980’s.

Games will be played at Mountain Valley High School for the ‘A’ division and Mountain Valley Middle School in Mexico for the ‘B’ division on Friday night and Saturday. This is a three-game, round-robin preliminary. The top four teams will qualify for the playoff round games for both A and B divisions at MVHS on Sunday. Games will start at 5:30 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The field is open to 16 teams, eight in each division. There will be a foul shooting contest, 3-point shooting contest and a slam dunk contest. Awards will be given to all contest winners and division winners. There will be an all-star team selected and an MVP for each division. Evening entertainment is planned at Teana’s Shelter Lounge on Friday and Saturday night.

Cost for the tournament is $350 per team, and the bracket is almost filled. Interested teams or officials, please contact Eddie Paterson at 364-9352 or [email protected]
