Arvest Invitational Returns to the WAC


Contributed by Coach Josh Atchley

When the calendar turns to December, everyone knows the Arvest Invitational is just around the corner. A long-standing tradition in Scott County is the junior high basketball classic, which may have changed names over the years but not the level of competition. The three dates of the classic will be December 4th, 6th, and 9th. The girl’s bracket will not only feature the Jr High Lady Bulldogs who hold a 7-1 record, but also locate talented teams from Acorn, Mt. Ida, and Booneville. The boys bracket will showcase the same teams with Waldron’s Jr Boys’ squad riding a 6-game winning streak.  

The action will tip off at 4:00 each evening, with the Waldron teams being the nightcaps at 6:30 and 7:45. Jr High Bulldog Coach Zak Terwilliger added, “We look forward every year to host the Arvest Invitational. It has a great reputation around the area because of Arvest’s support. Both sides of the tournament this year should be great junior high basketball.” Come by and enjoy an exciting week of basketball!
