As the 25th annual Junior Orange Bowl Basketball Classic tips off Friday morning, Dec. 27, at Reagan/Doral High School, basketball practice of a different sort will be the main focus of visiting high school teams from Bartow (FL) High School (Boys) and Mt. Lebanon (PA) High School (Girls).
For the eighth year in a row, the Junior Orange Bowl Committee is sponsoring a clinic at the WOW Center, located at 11450 SW 79 St. in Kendall. This tradition began with the help of Montverde Academy and their coach Kevin Sutton. Mt Lebanon’s teams will be participating for the second time, while this is the first appearance for Bartow. Mt. Lebanon’s girls’ team won the Junior Orange Bowl Basketball Classic in 2011. The WOW Center is a facility that helps individuals learn community and work skills through Adult Day Training and Job Coaching.
Coaches Dori Oldaker (Mt. Lebanon) and Terrence McGriff (Bartow) and their teams will be providing an interactive opportunity for the adults at CHC to see the team work out and enjoy participation in the drills and meeting the players.
The clinic will take place at 10 a.m.
