Tourney winners

Fortuna Middle School's eighth grade basketball team won the 11th annual Ferndale 8th Grade Boys Basketball Tournament on Jan. 25 and Jan. 26. After beating Cuddeback and Trinity Valley in the first two games, the Fortuna Spartans beat a good, well-coached Ferndale team in the championship game. The team was awarded medals, with Spartans Holden Palmer and Martin Calderon on the all-tournament team, and Aiden Morris receiving the MVP award. Because this tournament was a qualifying tournament for the Crescent City Jaycees tournament, the Spartan team also received an automatic invitation to the end of the season Crescent City Jaycees tournament on March 1 and March 2.
