Hoop Dreams wins 3 On 3 At the Summit basketball tourney

An annual three-on-three basketball tournament, hosted July 30 on the outdoor courts at the Silverthorne Recreation Center to benefit the Summit High School basketball program.

This year, five teams competed and each team played a minimum of five games. The sponsor team, Hoop Dreams, won for the second year in a row, led by new Summit High boy’s head varsity coach Jordan Scott. Half of the games were settled by three points of less and no team went undefeated, leading to what organizer Kelly Carlberg calls a “very competitive” tournament. He also wants to thanks to Silverthorne rec center staff for use of the courts and Breck rec center staff for promoting the tourney.

If you missed the tourney, no worries: there are still plenty of opportunities for pick-up this summer. Head to the Summit County Basketball page on Facebook to connect with other players.

Kick in a Box cuts a hole in the competition at S’thorne kickball tourney

After eight weeks of kickball and one heated evening of tournament play, Kick in a Box is Silverthorne’s newest summer league champion.

On July 27, the No. 2-ranked team donned their signature American eagle shirts (no boxes in sight) for the season finale at Rainbow Park field at the Silverthorne rec center. The No. 8 team, Big Bunts, went the distance by beating the No. 1 and No. 4 teams in the single-elimination tourney.

This earned a bid for the championship game against Kick in a Box, but the SNL-approved squad was too much for the comeback team. The champs took an early lead and dominated the final for the win.
