Who is the best junior high girls basketball team in our area? We may find out this Saturday.
The 2020 First State Bank Cooke County Shootout junior high girls basketball tournament will be held at Gainesville High School.
Ten different schools and 16 teams will be competing in two divisions (7th grade and 8th grade).
Games start at 8 a.m. using both the main competition gym and the auxiliary gym at GHS. Tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students for all-day admission.
