Pine Forest hoops it up
- Written by Staff
Hoop It Up II, held Nov. 29 and 30, at Pine Forest Baptist, was great three on three basketball fun for neighborhood young people. Middle school boys champion was Team Name (this was actually what they called themselves), composed of Davonte Carpenter, Richard Robertson, Devon Pittman, Jesse Roberson and Juan Jiminez. Two high school division winners were BMS, with Charles Simmons, Eric Cantu, Jazz Smith, Fabian Gray, and Torence Porter; and GSC with Airess Burnom, Benjamin Robertson, Derrick Lewis and Roydrick Thomas. The Slam Dunk fest ended in a tie between Derek Rideaux, Jr. and Benjamin Robertson. The 3 point shoutout was won by Davonte Carpenter. As part of a continuing effort to provide wholesome fun for area youth, Pine Forest will host a three on three league on Mondays beginning Jan. 21, 2008. Teams or individuals are welcome, but must register at the church on or before January 20. The location is 18425 Timber Forest, across from Timberwood Middle School.
