Belton JV Tournament Recap
There were 9 teams & 18 games in 3 days in cool, damp to wet weather the first 2 days & the complete opposite on Saturday with the sunny, dry & windy conditions. A special “thank you” to the 2-man, grounds crew, 2 scorekeepers, 1 ticket-taker, & 2 maintenance men for their hard work & the 6 faculty/administrators who came out to support. Without your hard work & dedication, we would have been stranded & isolated more than we already were, & none of this would have been possible. Thank you again!
