Team seeking hosts

A tradition of Australian students playing in the Bowie High School boys’ basketball tournament is continuing this year and host families are needed for the visitors from the land down under.

The tournament will take place Nov. 30- Dec. 2. The students will arrive that Thursday evening and leave on Saturday. A total of three teams are coming, with 42 students in all, a huge increase from the amount of students last year.

“Last time we only needed 12 families, this time we have to have 21 families because two students stay with each family,” explained Coordinator Koni Jones. “I have eight families that have spoken up who did it last year and want to do it again, but many are still needed.”
