WEEKEND: Basketball tourney set Saturday, Sunday

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Martin Luther King Classic, a basketball tournament for fifth- through eighth-grade boys and girls teams, is set Saturday and Sunday.

Games start at 11 a.m. Saturday and at 8 a.m. Sunday in four gyms in Port Angeles where 37 teams from throughout Western Washington will compete in six divisions.

The gyms are at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St.; Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave.; Roosevelt Elementary School, 106 Monroe Road; and Stevens Middle School, 1139 W. 14th St.

Tickets — $3 per adult and $1 per child per day — will be sold at each gym and are good for all games at all gyms on that day, said Dan Estes, city sports and events coordinator.

The schedules of the games will be posted at each gym, he said.

At least one local team will play in each division, Estes said.

“We have four teams from Mount Baker — that’s the farthest away,” Estes said.

The final games will be played at 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

Each game will take about an hour. Winners will be declared in each division.
