SPTC holds Basketball Marathon
In an attempt to ignite basketball fever on La Isla Bonita, The San Pedro Town Council held an all-day marathon on Sunday, November 13th at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium. Four teams competed in hopes of capturing the top prize: Caye Caulker, Tuff E Nuff, Healthy Police, and Boca Boyz. After several exciting matches Boca Boyz triumphed and took home the championship.
Organizers of the event, Councillor Hector ‘Tito’ Alamilla and Deputy Mayor Gary Greif are pleased with the success of the event, glad to see interest in the sport. “We want basketball players on the island to start getting into the mood of this sport,” said Alamilla.
The final match actually led to two games, as Boca Boyz tied the first game against Tuff E Nuff. During the second game, the tension between both teams increased and the scores volleyed back and forth. Both wanted the top prize, but only one could go home with it. After four quarters of a hard – fought game, Boca Boyz were declared winners with an advantage of two points, 48-46. They won a $500 cash prize.
