MOUNT HOPE — The gymnasium at the Mount Hope Community Center was a busy place last week.

The first Mount Hope Youth All-Star Invitational was staged on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

In addition to the host Mount Hope Youth Basketball League, which is sponsored by the Mount Hope United Methodist Church, other participants included Meadow Bridge, the Ben Argento Basketball League in Fayetteville, the Joe Aiello Memorial Basketball League in Oak Hill and the John A. Flournoy Youth Basketball League in Hico.

“We were pleased to have the opportunity to host an all-star tournament in Mt. Hope,” said Randy Maynor, who supervises the MHYBL with his wife, Debbie. “Our goal to provide a fun, family-oriented, competitive environment was successful in our opinion.

“All of the teams played hard and respected the outcome of the games with sportsmanlike attitudes. I don’t think we could have asked for anything more. We appreciate all of the coaches, players, cheerleaders, parents and sponsors who made this a successful tournament. We look forward to next year.”
