To the Editor:
Have you ever participated in the 3-on-3 tournament at McHenry School District 15? The tournament has been running for 17 years, and more than 1,500 students have played in the tournament. The students play hard, have fun and show great sportsmanship.
We would like to thank the following sponsors: McHenry Specialties (Joe and his family have been sponsoring us for all 17 years); McHenry Bank and Trust (for more than 10 years); McHenry Classroom Teachers Association (for more than five years); Bjorkman’s Ace (helped us get started 17 years ago and have come back and sponsored us again); Retek Auto (have been sponsors for four years now); and Old Town Pizza (for three years). We have had many other sponsors throughout the years that have supported us as well.
Most importantly, the community of McHenry continues to support this fun activity. Without all the volunteers (parents, school staff and family/friends) the tournament would never be able to succeed. I’m looking toward No. 18!
