“It keeps so many kids off the streets. I mean, you’ve got a lot of kids that have a lot of idle time, so again if you’re doing stuff like this, they’re in a safe haven. They’re doing things that they need to be doing. The programs that we provide for them, the opportunities that we provide for them to keep them off the street, to keep the crime down and keep girls doing things that are positive, staying healthy as we can,” said Sports Director Michael Woods.
This was the fifth year having the event, and it was great basketball played by those ladies.
