Gatorade and Jr. NBA Sponsors Middle School Basketball Tournament

In conjunction with the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, Gatorade and Jr. NBA conducted a middle school boys and girls basketball tournament for Charlotte area middle schools that spanned two-weekends in December and culminated on February 16th with girls and boys championship games at Bojangles’ Coliseum. Congratulations to the Ridge Road Middle School girls’ team who won the girl’s championship and Piedmont Middle School boys’ team who played in the boys’ championship game. In all, 72 CMS middle school basketball teams, numerous CMS middle school cheer teams, and hundreds of CMS middle school student-athletes experienced an opportunity of a lifetime.

Thank you Gatorade and Jr. NBA for funding and providing this education based athletics opportunity for CMS middle school student-athletes. Thank you CMS principals, athletic directors, and coaches for organizing and supporting our student-athletes. Thank you CMS parents, guardians, and families for your tremendous turnout and enthusiasm at these games. And, thank you CMS student-athletes for representing your teams and schools in a great way!
