It will be a day of basketball action as present and former Summerland Secondary School players face off at an annual tournament on Saturday.

The 2012 Homecoming Tournament begins Dec. 22 at 10:30 a.m. when the graduates of 2001 and earlier face the current senior Rockets boys’ team at the school. Alumni girls’ teams will play at 2:30 p.m..

In the afternoon, male graduates of 2002 to 2008 will face the 2009 to 2012 alumni team at 1:30 p.m.

The remainder of the games will be determined by the outcome of earlier matches.

The final will be at 5:30 p.m.

Don Walker, one of the organizers of the tournament, said money raised from the tournament will go to the high school’s basketball program.

He added that the players in the tournament were also the most active basketball players while they were at the high school.

“Traditionally, the people who come back to play tend to be those who played a lot,” he said. “It’s like all-star teams.”
