Travel Tournaments coming to McDaniel

Travel Tournaments coming to McDaniel

McDaniel women's basketball team is hosting the inaugural "Get your Turkey on the Hill" Travel Basketball Tournament on November 23-24, 2012 for Boys and Girls Travel Teams grades 4 through 8. A and B division travel teams are encouraged to participate.

The team will also host the "Holiday on the Hill" Tournament for the same grades and teams December 27-28, 2012 at McDaniel College.

McDaniel offers four college-size courts and has a beautiful campus to visit.

The women's basketball team plans to host both the "Turkey on the Hill" and "Holiday on the Hill" Tournaments annually as fundraisers for their trip to France. Every four years the Green Terror team travels to France to play international competition and also tour historical sites including Normandy, Paris and Nice. This is a 25-year program tradition and very unique and exiting part of the McDaniel women's basketball team experience. 

All McDaniel home games are free to the public. We encourage the community to come out and watch both the men's and women's team in action this season. The women open up in their own Tip-Off Tournament, which opens on Friday at 6 p.m. against Emory & Henry. The men open up their home season on Nov. 29 against Dickinson.  

For more information regarding either tournament go to the McDaniel women's basketball home page under the more section to print out a PDF application for both tournaments.
