Holiday Basketball Tourney Includes Rules for Fans

Holiday Basketball Tourney Includes Rules for Fans


The Washington County Holiday Tourney is on for this Friday and Saturday, 18 and 19th, and will be a little different than years past. 

According to Eastern High School Athletic Director Scott Newcomb, only fans of the teams playing at the time will be allowed in the gym. 

However, teams not playing may watch the opposite game while sitting in their designated area.

Game 1 will be a match between the West Washington Senators against the Borden        Braves at 6:00 pm Friday. 

Game 2 will feature the Salem Lions against the Eastern Musketeers at approximately 7:30pm or 25 minutes after Game 1. 

Newcomb said due to COVID restrictions, only one broadcast crew will be allowed in the gym and Mikie Batt and Wes Drury will be announcing all games both nights. 

For Game 1 at 6p Friday, only fans from West Washington and Borden will be allowed to enter the school. 

West Washington fans should enter through the west doors by the main office, Door 1. 

Borden fans should enter through the South doors by the student lot, Door 13.

Newcomb said the school is only allowed to have parents and siblings at the games.

If this changes, there will be adjustments made and new information released.

All fans will be expected to leave immediately after the first game, said Newcomb. There will be no exceptions.

For Game 2,  Salem and Eastern fans should NOT arrive prior to 7:30.

Once the first game is completed and the fans from the first game have filed out, the second game crowd will be allowed to enter.

Game time will be approximately 8 pm for the second game.

Admission is $6 per person. 

Newcomb said only those with a voucher are allowed in, which would include parents and siblings only.   

He said guests must present the filled out voucher at the door and pay $6 then to enter.
