The annual Chadron State College Hoop Shoot tournament for teams in grades 4-8 wraps up today with single-elimination tournaments in all age groups. Over 500 young basketball players on 64 teams are taking part.
The Hoop Shoot was begun as a 3-day charity event, but is now a fundraiser for the Chadron State men’s and women’s basketball programs.
CSC women’s coach Janet Raymer says that role is more important than ever this year.
The lingering nature of COVID-19 rules led Raymer to streamline the Hoop Shoot this year from 3 days to 2 and from 4 guaranteed games to 3. Today’s schedule runs from 7:00 AM to 5 PM.
