Lenape Valley Basketball Scholarship Fund 3on3 Tournament

The 15th Annual Lenape Valley Basketball Scholarship Fund 3on3 Tournament will be held this Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Site: Central Bucks High South, Folly Road in Warrington

Now entering its 15th year, the Lenape Valley Basketball Scholarship Fund's 3on3 Tournament is ready to go for 2013!

Over the past 14 years, the tournament has become the premiere 3on3 event in Bucks County. Over 400 girls and boys, ages 7-18 years old, are expected to participate this year. Ready to Play? Register now . . .

The founding purpose of this scholarship fund was to support children who have experienced the catastrophic loss of a parent and need help in obtaining a college education. As the program has grown, scholarship eligibility has expanded to include students making significant achievements in academic and community service.

The event is in the memory of Jack Hayes, a local dad who was heavilty involved in youth sports in the Central Bucks area, was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away all too soon. He left behind a wife and three young kids.

Said C.B. West football coach Brian Hensel: "He was a pillar of the community and well respected by all. A guy who really understood the purpose of youth sports.

"In his memory, three men took it upon themselves to create a scholarship fund in his honor. The funds for this scholarship are raised mostly through a weekend 3v3 basketball tournament. The event has been attended by current and former Big 5 college athletes."
