West Bladen boys basketball Coach Travis Pait has this to say about the event. "We are again happy to be hosting this event. We have expanded to a three day tournament and believe this will be an unbelievable three days. The seven teams that will be joining us are all well coached and will certainly be contenders in their respective leagues. The level of competition will certainly help prepare all of the participants for conference play. We would like to thank Mr. Joe Walters and Woodmen of the World for their participation as title sponsors of this event. Woodmen is such a great organization who are always trying to give back to the community."

Woodmen of the World state manager Joe Walters had this to say: "Woodmen of the World is very excited to be involved with an event like this that benefits so many young people. All of the communities involved have a high rate of Woodmen members, which makes this a great venue for us to continue to actively strengthen our communities. We have for a long time seen the value of team sports on our young people. Many lessons are taught and learned during this time in our youth's lives and Woodmen wants to be part of this process. We believe that this tournament gives us the chance to do just that."

Woodmen of the World is a fraternal benefit society dedicated to protecting its members and strengthening its communities. Woodmen of the World has been working with young people for more than one hundred years. All though the world has changed dramatically during the past century, the basic core of our basic youth activities has remained the same; it's all about helping kids grow up to be and do their best.

Guess which team he meant?

He was saying Laney!! Not every team is bad. But Laney got destroyed!!
They have no real talent coaching or playing!

Definitely not a Jordan type team at all!!! Sad,sad!

The worst

No talent no coaching worse 4a team I have seen ever

Local high school basketball

Local high school basketball coaching, especially on the girls side,
has been terrible for quite a few years. The Laney coach I would have
to say is the exception. Having said that, some of these coaches would
probably tell you privately that they know they are not that good at
coaching, but nobody else is stepping up to run these programs. Its a
lot of hours spent after the school day in the gym and away from their
families that is not very financially rewarding, so you have to look at it from that aspect also.

Laney woman's coach is

Laney woman's coach is wasting the talent she has had for the past three years. She is very weak game coach. Only Girls coaches in the area that get everything out of there players would be CFA Joe Gaughan and Ashley Adrienne Gale.
