(Neb)- Chadron Rotary Holiday Tournament Gets Underway Thurs

By: John Axtell Posted at: 12/28/2016 02:45 PM
 The Chicoine Center at Chadron State College hosts the Chadron Rotary George Watson Holiday Tournament this Thursday and Friday.

      The action starts Thursday at 2:00 with the Hemingford and Spearfish girls, followed at 4:00 by the boys from those schools. Then its Chadron versus Valentine, the girls playing at 5:30 and the boys at 7:00. Spearfish won both titles last year.

      Friday's schedule is complicated by the fact that the Chadron State men and women are both home that night against Fort Lewis.

      As a result, the high school action begins in the morning with the girls consolation game at 10:00, followed by the boys' consolation at 11:30.

      The girls championship is set for 1:00 followed boys championship at 2:30...but the last 3 could all start later depending on how long the games ahead of them take.

     That, in turn, could push the college games a little later, depending on how long they might run over and how long the college women's teams would require for warmups.

     Last year's results don't offer a lot to go on for this year's Holiday Tournament with most of the 8 teams losing heavily to graduation.

      Both Spearfish teams have just 1 win, the Chadron boys - last year's runnerup - are 2-5, the Hemingford boys are 2-3, while the Valentine boys are 1-5 and their girls 1-6.

      Only the Chadron and Hemingford girls come in with winning records. The Lady Cardinals are 4-3 after opening the season 0-2 while the Lady Bobcats are 4-1, losing only to Mitchell.

     Per-day admission for the Chadron Rotary George Watson Holiday Tournament is $5 for adults and $4 for both students and senior citizens.
