NORTHERN COLORADO YOUTH COMPETE AT NUGGETS SKILLS CHALLENGE
 
The Denver Nuggets Basketball Skills Challenge was held Saturday, January 11 at the Family FunPlex. Forty-seven kids competed in three different skill challenges: dribbling, passing and shooting. The winners in each age division will move on to Sectionals in Windsor on February 23.
 
The Family FunPlex Fieldhouse was the perfect setting for the event. The sport court gym was large enough to accommodate all three activities. The following is a list of all the winners at the event that will be advancing to Sectionals:
Boys age 7/8  Weston Pierce  Girls age 7/8  Jayah Tellez
Boys age 9/10  Zane Aikens  Girls age 9/10  Nakaiya Kuskie
Boys age 11/12  Jonah Fanning  Girls age 11/12  Haley Chavez
Boys age 13/14  Oscar Maldonado Girls age 13/14  Megan Dunn
 
This was the first time that the City of Greeley Culture, Parks, and Recreation Department has hosted the event. Thank you to those participants that came out on Saturday to show off their basketball skills. Congratulations to the above mentioned students advancing in their age divisions; best of luck competing in the next phase of the Skills Challenge! For more information about the event, please contact Braydon Maxwell, Recreation Supervisor at 350.9401.
