Kids Inc. annual 3 on 3 Summer Shootout drew hundreds to The Courts of Amarillo this past Friday and Saturday. Teams of cagers competed in divisions accommodating the most seasoned athletes to the youngest budding stars. The two day event has become a right of passage for many area basketball players. Some competing in the adult divisions fondly looked back to the early years of playing 3 on 3 on Polk street.
While winning was the ultimate goal of every team it was the athletic programs of Kids Inc. that prevailed as the ultimate winner, proceeds from the event fund the sports programs of the organization.
