Sports Brief

Teams are still needed to compete in the Holiday Winter Classic basketball tournament planned Jan. 3-4 by the Coweta Dugout Club. The tournament is open to boys and girls in 3rd through 7th grades.

Organizer Todd McCoy said there will be five divisions for both boys and girls by grade, and at least four teams are needed in each division for the division to make. Entry fee is $100 per team with a three game guarantee. There will be paid officials.
