The Ste. Genevieve and Valle Catholic basketball programs will participate in jamborees this week.
The Dragon boys’ basketball team will be having a jamboree at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Peggy J. Johnson Gymnasium.
Ste. Genevieve will play Herculaneum. The Dragons and Blackcats will play six six-minute quarters, said R-II activities director Dr. Jeff Nix.
Admission will be $2 for adults and $1 for students.
There will be no limit on the crowd because of the small number of spectators expected for the event.
Valle Catholic boys’ basketball coach Tyler Search told the Herald they will not be participating in a jamboree.
