Follow Central at the Tournament Of Champions

The Central Lady Warriors will be heading to Phoenix, AZ to participate in the Tournament of Champions (TOC) Session I from December 17-23, 2009. Last year, Central attended this tournament and put themselves on the map as a nationally competitive and ranked squad.

If you have no idea what the Tournament of Champions is, check out the details I got from the website.

For more than a decade the Tournament of Champions has been regarded as the most competitive and prestigious high school basketball event in North America and the world.

Long considered the de facto national championship for American girls' basketball, it has showcased 10 of the past 12 USA Today National Champions and a remarkable 84 State Champions since 1997.

Since its inception the Tournament of Champions has hosted more than 16,000 student athletes from 41 states and Canada, and publications from the USA Today to ESPN have described the event as "staggering" and "unparalleled."

The Tournament of Champions has been conducted in the Phoenix Metro area since 2001, and is co-sponsored by Chandler High School and the Chandler Unified School District (CUSD). It is sanctioned by and through the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) and the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS).

Now one of the largest team interscholastic sporting events in the United States, the Tournament of Champions is conducted in two sessions to accommodate more than 128 teams annually: one session the week prior to Christmas and another beginning the day after.
