Members of the DRPS hosted the Chief’s Annual 3 on 3 basketball tournament at Durham College/UOIT on Friday, June 5 for local Grade 9 and 10 students.
Sixty-five students from G.L. Roberts in Oshawa, Pickering High School and Notre Dame CSS in Ajax were on their game in this fun sporting event. The tournament got underway at 8:30 a.m. and right from the start, the competition was stiff.
Two teams from Pickering High School battled it out in the final game with the team of Jovan Bailey, Jamal Sebastien and Donnele Munda emerging victorious.
The tournament was created to help bring members of the DRPS and youth together in a positive setting.
Many thanks to all the sponsors, who helped make this tournament a great success: ProAction Cops & Kids, DC/UOIT, Sobeys North Oshawa, DRPS, DRPA, Jim’s Towing, Pizza Pizza and the YMCA.
Additional thank yous go out to all our dedicated volunteers who helped this event run smoothly and to Constables Janine Henderson and Brian Stewart for organizing the day.
Congratulations to everyone involved and DRPS can’t wait until next year’s tournament.
