WIC alumni meet at tourney

IRON RIVER—The men and women who once played on West Iron County’s past basketball teams met on the hardwoods again over the holidays at Charles Greenlund Gymnasium. The event was the West Iron County Alumni basketball tournament, held on Dec. 30. It ended with the grads from 2011-12-13 defeating the 2007-08-09 team in the championship game.
    While the vast majority of teams were from the 2000s, alumni from as far back as the 1970s took part. All the teams offered plenty of excitement and great basketball entertainment.
    Proceeds collected from player registration fees and donations will go to benefit the West Iron boys and girls basketball programs.
    The alumni tournament is again being planned over the holidays in 2018.
    Sponsors are already committing to this community event, organizers said.
