The Mount Airy girls basketball program is sponsoring a three-on-three basketball tournament on Saturday to help raise money for Andria Leonard, a former Lady Bear who is currently battling cancer. Leonard was a basketball player at Mount Airy from 2007-2010.
The Lady Bears would like to invite all students, faculty and citizens of Mount Airy and the surrounding area to his event. It is open to players as well as spectators, and registration closes at 9 a.m. Saturday with the games starting shortly after. Players can pre-register by contacting Howard Mayo at [email protected]
Men and women can participate in the tournament and there will be six divisions for competition: middle school girls, middle school boys, high school girls, high school boys, adult women and adult men. It will be a double-elimination tournament and champions will receive a certificate and medal.
The cost to participate is $10 per player and $5 per spectator.
