2014 Kiwanis All-Valley Classic

DAVID ERICKSON Ravalli Republic

It’s almost time for one of the most cherished sporting traditions in the Bitterroot Valley, the 2014 Kiwanis All-Valley Classic. Featuring boys and girls prep basketball stars from each of the county’s six high schools, the event is an All-Star basketball game and an awards ceremony honoring athletes’ achievements in all sports for the past year. The event will be held on Tuesday, March 18 at Hamilton High School this year. The girls game will be at 6 p.m., and the boys game will be at 8 p.m.. Along with the All-Valley awards ceremony, there will also be the three-point contests, recognition of state champions from this past year, and an appearance from University of Montana mascot Monte. The Darby Drum Line will provide the musical entertainment. On the following pages you will find all the information you need to enjoy the game.
