The Memorial Athletic Association’s Annual 7th and 8th Grade Basketball Tournament was once again a great success. Teams from Gloucester, Brooklawn, St. Mary’s, Holy Trinity, St. Margaret’s, Our Lady of Hope, Barrington and Merchantville competed in the tournament.
The Memorial Athletic Association would like to thank all of the schools and their fans for a great week of basketball. We would also like to thank the Gloucester City Board of Education for their continued support of youth sports programs in our city.
Special thanks to GHS Athletic Director Leon Harris, Ron Garrison and his staff, and the many referees that volunteered their time.
