2011 Naptown Classic Youth Wheelchair Basketball Tournament A Huge Success! March 1st, 2011

On January 29th & 30th, the RHI Sports Program hosted the 1st annual Naptown Classic youth wheelchair basketball tournament at the Monon Community Center.  More than 70 youth athletes with physical disabilities competed in two age divisions.  Seven different teams from all over the Midwest came to compete for the tournament crowns.  After some exciting competition and over 500 spectators in attendance throughout the weekend, the tournament came to a close on Sunday afternoon with the Varsity division (ages 13-18) championship game between the Nashville Music City Thunder and the Hammond Rollin’ Hoosiers.


It was a close game early, but Nashville was too strong in the second half and pulled out the victory.  The RHI Mini Pacers came in a strong 2nd place with a 2-2 record in the Prep division (ages 7-12) finishing behind the Grand Rapids Jr. Pacers.


All in all it was a great first tournament hosted here in Indy and we hope to have even more teams compete next year.  Thank you again to our co-hosts the Monon Community Center for allowing us to use their great facility!
