The girls Buffalo basketball team dominated the hoops this past Saturday during the Rim Country Kiwanis annual Basketball Tournament.
Walking away with the first-place trophy and bragging rights, the junior high girls team beat West Sedona 35 to 10 in the first round and Tonto Basin in the second round 30 to 9. Tonto Basin beat Young to challenge P-S for the trophy.
Congrats to Mr. Fischel and all the girls for their talented show of athletics and good sportsmanship.
In the boys run for the trophy, West Sedona beat P-S in the first go around. Young beat Tonto Basin in the second round to take on West Sedona for the trophy.
West Sedona surfaced as the winners.
The P-S boys remained good hosts and stayed to cheer the girls team to victory.
Thanks to the Kiwanis for sponsoring the tournament and for volunteering scorekeepers and helpers during the daylong event.

Few people know that the U.S. Air Force used boats during World War II and Korea as well as in the United States. Enlisted men manned these boats, and our own Bob Hansen of Pine was one of these great veterans. At 1 p.m. Monday, Jan 27, Bob will present a program on the Crash Rescue Boat Squadron. He will share film footage and interviews with the men who performed this duty.
