Gary Fishel is relatively new in his job as a high school athletic director, but he understands the commitment and dedication it takes for a coach to successfully host a prep sports tournament. About Lady Longhorn coach Jen White, who this year hosted the Holiday Hoops invitational, Fishel said, “She really put her heart and effort into the tournament.” The fray, which was held Dec. 28 and 29 in Wilson Dome and Julia Randall Elementary School gymnasium, drew 16 teams representing schools of all size classifications. “They were outstanding teams and really good competition,” Fishel said. Xavier, an exclusive Jesuit college prep school in Phoenix, was the only team to finish undefeated going 4-0 and winning the Hoops championship title.
