Rather than hitting the road, three local youth teams — the 6th grade B boys, 6th grade girls and 4th grade B boys — were among 42 teams in seven divisions that took the court at the Valley City Parks and Recreation District Youth Basketball Tournament Saturday.
The tournaments were played on courts spanning from the Recreation Center and City Auditorium buildings to the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse at Valley City State University.
