The annual Intramural Basketball Tournament sponsored by Ava High School National Honor Society will begin Thursday, March 8 with games continuing March 9, 10, 12 and 13.
Third and firth grade games will be in the middle school gym beginning at 5:30 p.m. Fifth and sixth grade games will be played in the high school gym beginning at 5:45 p.m.
Since games will be played simultaneously in the two gyms, check brackets for starting times and location. Brackets were distributed to players at the last regular games on Feb. 25. Extra copies of the brackets will be available in each school office.
Twenty-five teams from two grade divisions – 3rd & 4th and 5th & 6th – will compete for first place medals.
Admission will be $2.50 for adults and $1 for school age children/students. District passes, senior citizen passes and student activity passes will not be honored at this event because all proceeds from the admission goes toward NHS’s Tracy Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund. NHS awards $2000 in scholarships each spring honoring Tracy Murphy.
During the past 22 years, the Ava National Honor Society Chapter has awarded $48,000 in scholarships to NHS members.
