LOW MOOR, VA (VR) — Clifton Middle School will host the Mountain River Realty and Alcova Mortgage basketball tournaments on Jan. 13 and Jan. 14, 2023.
The Alcova Mortgage tournament was rescheduled after it was postponed due to minor water damage at the school that was caused by frigid temperatures on Dec. 24. The tournament was originally scheduled for Dec. 28 and Dec. 29. Even though the water damage was relatively minor, the school division’s maintenance and custodial staff needed to prepare the gym for play.
Boys and girls tournaments are now slated for Jan. 13 and Jan. 14. Alcova will sponsor the boy’s tournament. The girl’s tournament will be sponsored by Mountain River Realty.
Participating teams include CMS, Covington, Maury River, Mountain View, and Kate Collins. The tournament schedule is:
