The second annual Donkey Basketball tournament was enjoyed by all who attended. There was no shortage of laughter or fun!
In the first game the Weippe Fire Department team fell to the dominating Clearwater County Sheriff’s Department players. A quick half-time took place and door prizes were given away. The lucky winners were Sheila Barteaux, Zarek Cochrell and Ethan Jared.
Half-time also included a donkey meet and greet where all were welcome onto the floor to get up close and visit with the four-legged players.
In the second game Timberline students and staff went head to head; it was a good game and the students prevailed in the end. The playoff game between the sheriff’s office and Timberline students was definitely captivating! A volley of scoring and a nail-biting tie at the buzzer pushed them into sudden death.
Timberline students pulled it out in the end to be crowned the 2013 Donkey Basketball Champions. The sponsors, Timberline Booster Club, appreciate all who participated and made the event a big hit!
