The annual fundraiser for the Women’s and Men’s Basketball Programs at Dawson Community College is scheduled for Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23, 2011. This coed tournament is five on five and full court. Teams must have at least two females on the floor at all times and picking up college players is encouraged. Team members must be 16 years of age or older and all games will have at least two officials. Teams will be guaranteed three games for their $200 registration fee and rosters are due by the 15th. We will also host a 3-point and dunk contest. Prizes for top competitors and fans in the stands will be awarded all weekend.
Last year's tourney reunited DCC alumni from the 80’s like Mike Skillestad and Ty Milne; an entire team of Alumni from the 90’s--Desi Torres, Bob Amsler, Trevor Houck, Crystal (Reiter) Amsler, Casi (Peterson) Houck; Dawson County High athletes and graduates: Katy Peterson, Blair Milne, Brittney Lystad, Alex Milne, Cody Sevier, and Copper Fink. Last year hosted eight teams, we already have four registered this year but are hoping for twelve teams.
Individual 2010 tourney winners were 3-point champion Kayla (McPherson) Rivas and DeMarlow Simmons. DeMarlow, with a lift from Chris Davenport, also won the inaugural dunk contest.
