Phil Brown Basketball Classic

Phil Brown Basketball Tournament concludes successful 28th year

The Rotary Club of Westerville concluded another highly successful Phil Brown Holiday Basketball Classic Friday, Dec. 27, 2019.

Played in Otterbein University’s Rike Center, participating Westerville high school teams won five of their six games against local competition in this year’s tournament.

Both boys and girls squads from all three Westerville schools play in the tourney. Final scores from the 2019 Classic were, in order of games played:

  • Westerville North girls 67, Worthington Christian 42
  • Worthington Christian boys 61, Westerville North boys 51
  • Westerville Central girls 49, Mount Vernon 27
  • Westerville Central boys 51, Tri-Valley 38
  • Westerville South girls 62, Granville 41
  • Westerville South boys 63, Logan 46

The tournament originally was organized in 1991 by Westerville South boys Coach Ed Calo and former Westerville North boys Coach Dave Hoover, as the Westerville Holiday Basketball Classic. It has been staged by the Westerville Rotary since 1998, and was renamed the Phil Brown Holiday Basketball Classic in honor of the late Brown, who served as president of the club in 1995-96.

The Rotary Club of Westerville extends its congratulations to all the players and fans who attended, and thanks to Otterbein University for providing the wonderful venue of the Rike Center.

Hello Club! That picture is at the conclusion of my last April Walk4WARM. Official distance completed is 152.07 miles for April. Not quite as long as this pandemic but hopefully it helped us remember the need going on in our community currently. You folks really responded to the Club fund raiser for April. So proud of you all. As of Wednesday $4125 had been donated + $1500 from the club match + $2000 from District Grant. Total $7625 or the equivalent of a full week of meals for 217 people. Well done!
