Three-on-three tournament raises $400 for preschool

The Slam at the Dam three-on-three basketball tournament raised $431 for Children’s Center of San Lorenzo Valley on July 14. The tournament was played in Ben Lomond Park.

The Farmers, a team of Jordan Beck, Ben Beck, Kevin Krueger and Darcy McNee, won eight games to win the tournament. In second place were the Bear Slugs — Ryan Thompson, Clayton Conrad and Beau Thompson — and finishing third was team Ramrod, made up of Jared Payne, Josh Payne and Nick Lipperd.

The 10-team tournament included pool play and a double-elimination tournament bracket.

Organizer Matt O’Brien said butterscotch chocolate chip cookies made by Brad Lodge were a hit and sold out as part of the fundraiser.
