Representatives from SCU presented a check recently for $3,000 to Waterloo High School Athletic Director Dan Classen.

Scott Credit Union is the exclusive sponsor of the tournament for the next three years. The event will alternate each year between Highland High School and Waterloo High School.

This year’s tournament will be held Nov. 23-28 at Waterloo High School.

The games will be held at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 8 p.m. on the Monday and Tuesday. The Friday session will feature day games at 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. The tournament will wrap up on Saturday with games at 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. The winner of the round-robin tournament will be determined by team record, head-to-head play, points allowed and free throw percentage.

“We’re excited about being the exclusive sponsor of this tournament,” said Scott Credit Union Community Relations Representative Cassidy Beck. “It will be a great event and since we have locations in both Highland and Waterloo, the sponsorship was a good fit for us. We believe in supporting schools and the community and this gives us another chance to do that.”

“The tournament will feature some really good teams,” Beck added. “We are pleased to have Scott Credit Union support another premier basketball tournament at local high schools in our area.”
