This is the third year in a row for this friendly competition, and there was a large crowd cheering the teams on. This year’s title went to the Boys and Girls Club Youth Team.
“Even though the deputies and our law enforcement professionals lost, the game was a win for everyone,” said Sheriff Neil Godfrey. “We at the sheriff’s office along with all the other law enforcement agencies are doing all we can to form positive relationships with our youth. We aim to ensure that the bonds formed here today continue to grow beyond the basketball court.”
