Lakers to Host Annual Tourney

The Garrett Laker men’s team will open with Lord Fairfax CC, VA at 8 PM in the opening round of the McDonald’s Tip Off Tourney.  This year’s tourney will be in tournament fashion, not as a classic. 

If the Lakers win against Lord Fairfax, they will face the 4 PM winner between Erie CC, PA and Potomac State, WV.  

“Thanks to McDonald’s for again hosting the tournament for our men’s and ladies teams this year.  And also to the people that make this type of event work. Eric Hallenbeck is our tourney director and Scott Stallings has done an outstanding job of putting together our tournament program. This is a great opportunity for our players to play in front of our home crowd and also showcase our facility.  The competition is always excellent and it should be an exciting championship in both divisions regardless of who plays”  Coach Dennis Gibson

The ladies team will open their season with Macomb College, Michigan, at 6 PM on Friday, a late addition to the tourney that is a perennial power in D-2 ladies hoops. The winner of that game will face the winner of the Erie CC and Potomac State ladies on Saturday.
