The Leavenworth County Special Olympics annual basketball tournament will not be played this year.
The Ralph Matzeder Special Olympics Basketball Tournament was scheduled to take place last Saturday before weather on Friday and Saturday forced a cancellation of the event. Local coordinator and tournament director Vicki Lozenski said on Thursday that the tournament will not be rescheduled. Lozenski said there was not enough time to get the tournament in with the metro and state tournaments approaching.
She did say the “Make the Point” fundraiser will still take place at 9:45 a.m. at practice Saturday. The athletes will compete in their first tournament now at the metro tournament March 3.
