9th Annual Guy Vetrie Tournament Draw And Schedule
Published by Gilbert Muako on February 8, 2012
The Official 2012 Guy Vetrie Tournament schedule was sent out this yesterday and again looks to have what will be another entertaining weekend of hoops.
“The community of Sault Ste. Marie is very excited to be hosting the 9th Annual Guy Vetrie Memorial basketball Tournament
The Guy Vetrie is the most prestigious tournament held in Northern Ontario Feb 9-12th that draws top teams from the province and USA.
Last year in front of a packed gym Mt. Zion (NC) and Next Level Prep put on a show in the championship, leading to a 73-71 win for Next Level in one of the best high school games we have ever seen.
This year Mt. Zion returns to take another jab at the finals, REDA has reloaded and will not take a back seat to no one, Metro Prep brings their scrappy play and will look to dominate and Phase 1 will show off their newly improved roster. St. Mary, Korah, Superior Heights and St.Basil will have the home town crowd on their side for an extra boost.
Pickering, White Pines, Sarnia Northern, W.C Eaket, Lo-Ellen, Manitoulin, John Mcgregor, REDA Black, HB Beal and Central Algoma fill up the rest of participating teams.
The man steering the ship of the great event is Jeff Giovanitti one of the more instrumental coaches in our country. Giovanitti has seen some quality hoops played in this tournament and expects this year to be no different.
“The community of Sault Ste. Marie is very excited to be hosting the 9th Annual Guy Vetrie Memorial basketball Tournament. Once again the draw will feature some outstanding teams from both the United States and Canada.” Said Giovanitti.
” The “best” of all worlds collide as teams from the NPSAA, OFSAA, and the U.S. prep circuit due to battle for supremacy and the right to be crowned 2012 Guy Vetrie Tournament champions. Once again I see some tremendous basketball and encourage everyone to come and catch a game or two.”
