The 30th Annual Alumni Basketball Tournament

March 10-11, 2017

The 30th Annual Alumni Basketball tournament will take place on March 10, and March 11, 2017. "THE 30th!" - Amazing considering the relative size of Independence High School. A tribute to all those who have taken part in the past and/or continue the tradition. He didn't know it at the time, but a great idea originally proposed by Tom Chodzin is about to become 30 years old!
