YMCA/NHS Basketball Program
Hy-Vee of Newton recently donated basketballs to the Newton YMCA/Newton High School Traveling Basketball program. Pictured are Jason Crocker, Hy-Vee store director, and Tom Vanderlaan, YMCA executive director. The program is a collaboration of Newton Senior High School boys and girls basketball programs, the NHS Athletic Department and the Newton YMCA. The program will be offering four tournaments with more than 100 teams coming to Newton to compete on Dec. 14, Jan. 11, Feb. 1 and March 1. More than 70 boys and girls are participating in the program with the first local tournament, the Pizza Ranch Top Gun Tournament on Saturday at Berg Middle School and NHS. Volunteers are still needed to help at the tournaments. Contact Vanderlaan at (641) 792-4006 to assist with the tournaments.
