It’s almost time for the Roskruge Cougar Classic. The annual basketball tournament for players between 5th and 7th grades will be held over the course of three weeks.
The tournament is in its 40th year. The first tournament, held in 1983, had only three teams and was staged on the concrete outdoor basketball courts at Roskruge Elementary near downtown. In the years since, the field has expanded and the tournament is played in air conditioned gymnasiums.
