Between 150 and 200 4-Hers will participate in this year’s 4-H basketball tournament. That’s according to Marion County Extension Youth Services Coordinator Mindy Kephart. The tournament starts Friday afternoon at Melcher-Dallas High School and will continue through Saturday. The tournament has been occurring for a number of years, and records from tournaments in the 70s and 60s can still be found in the Marion County Extension Office Building. Each club is divided into four different teams based on age and gender. This is also a clover kid competition, a free throw contest, and an alumni/volunteer game. Things start at 5pm Friday and continue at 9am on Saturday.
