Another Gold Medal Basketball Tournament is in the books.
After a three-year pause unique in the sprawling history of the annual Juneau Lions Club fundraiser that draws talent from across Southeast Alaska, 44 games featuring 26 teams were played across seven days in the Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaa.at Kalé gymnasium.
When the final buzzer sounded, teams from Juneau, Hoonah and Prince of Wales had won titles. Prince of Wales took the top spot in the Women’s Bracket, Hoonah in the Masters Bracket, Juneau’s Filcom in the C Bracket and Juneau in the B Bracket.
