The rest of the world may be taking it easy this week but the winter tournament basketball season is not over yet. The 11th Annual Phoenix Union Boys Holiday Classic and the Blue Ridge Holiday Classic will be in full force with teams from Southern Arizona taking part.
Nogales and Amphi are scheduled to play in the PUHSD Classic while Catalina Foothills, Benson, Rio Rico and Willcox are slated to be in Lakeside.
Current Foothills coach Mark Felix coached Blue Ridge to a second place finish in 1997 before moving to the Tucson area.
Wrestling tourneys are also taking place: Baboquivari and Tohono O’Odham will be at the Joseph City Wrestling Invitational; Catalina Foothills, Marana and Salpointe will be at the “Mile High Challenge” in Prescott; Cholla, Safford and Sunnyside will be at the “Tournament of Champions” in Peoria and Thatcher will be in the “Survival of the Fittest” in Round Valley.
