RPD vs. Murray b-ball tournament is Feb. 12

UPDATE: As of Monday, Feb. 11, the fundraiser event was rescheduled for March 12.

Officers of the Ridgecrest Police Department will respond to Murray Middle School on March 12 to post-up against Murray’s basketball teams. The tournament is a fundraiser for the school’s athletics department.

This is the department’s second consecutive year playing against Murray’s teams – who proved to be worthy adversaries last year.

“I get a little older and it gets a little harder every year,” said Sgt. Justin Dampier, who has played in previous tournaments. The department has also played a similar tournament against the Monroe Middle School teams in past years.

Officers will be playing against the 7th- and 8th-grade boys’ and girls’ teams with games beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Murray gym. Entry is $5 per family.
