Jerry Durant/Charlie Gilchrist Kangaroo Klassic scheduled for Dec. 3-5

Local basketball fans will have 40 games over three days to enjoy during the 20th annual Jerry Durant/Charlie Gilchrist Kangaroo Klassic December 3-5 at Weatherford High School.

Formerly known as the Weatherford New Car Dealers Kangaroo Klassic, the tournament is hosted by the WHS Boys Basketball Booster Club and features high school teams from across the state. Participating schools include Weatherford, Boswell, Burleson, Burleson Centennial, Conroe, Denton Guyer, El Paso Montwood, L.D. Bell, Lubbock Coronado, Midlothian, Northwest, Red Oak and Richland.

“We’re proud that this is our tournament’s 20th year,” said Brent Baker, Booster Club president. “The late Don Allen and others started this event in the mid-90’s, and we’d like to dedicate this year’s tournament to him. Thanks to Jerry and Charlie for helping us continue the tradition.”

Games begin at 10:30 a.m. each day. The final game Thursday will be held at 6 p.m., the final game Friday will tip off at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday’s varsity championship game will begin at 3 p.m.

The Weatherford varsity will begin the tournament against Burleson at 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The Roos’ remaining game times will depend on their bracket position. Weatherford’s JV and both freshmen teams will also participate in the tournament.

“Last year, several visiting coaches told us that this is their favorite tournament of the season,” Baker said. “We’re going to continue that Weatherford hospitality this year. Coach Charles Tatum, Coach Jordan Coffman and others do a great job of organizing the tournament, and we have a team of hard-working volunteers.”

Tournament passes will be sold at the gate: three-day passes for $15, two-day passes for $10 and daily passes are available for $6 each.
