Young Classic is Jan. 16

The North Adams High School Athletic Department would like to announce the lineup of the third annual Coach Young Classic, to be held on Saturday, Jan. 16 at North Adams High School.

The Coach Young Classic will feature some of the best high school basketball programs in Southeastern Ohio, as a fitting tribute to the late North Adams basketball coach Dave Young. Proceeds from the day’s contests will benefit the Young Memorial Scholarship Foundation, which honors the lives of the late Dave Young and his brother Mark, who passed away in 2006.

The Classic will feature six Varsity boys’ contests and one Varsity girls match up. Programs such as Chesapeake, Eastern Brown, Oak Hill and South Webster will be among those playing (all of which have made the State Final Four since 2002). Programs that Dave Young were a part of, including West Union and host North Adams, will also be participants.

Admission will be $8 for everyone, with hands stamps available to all fans to come and go throughout the day. An all-day Split the Pot will be conducted (you do not need be present to win). T-Shirts and other Classic-related items will be available for purchase.

Please contact Classic Director Tony Williams (North Adams Athletic Director) if you have any questions regarding the Classic at 937-386-2528 (ext. 22011) or by email at tony.williams@ovsd.us.
