Several hundred people enjoyed the Fourth Annual Jack Hawkins Night Memorial basketball tournament and chili cookoff.
The evening began with a competition between the Fire Department, Sheriff's Department, and the Ambulance District to determine this year's chili cookoff champion.
When all was said and eaten, the Fire Department was crowned this year's champion by popular vote following a sampling session by the evening's guests.
In basketball action, only one team, the Lady Panther's basketball team, emerged from the night's competiton with an undefeated record. This year's talented squad defeated both the women's faculty and alumni squads.
The women's alumni eased past the faculty in game one to start things off.
After their opening round loss to the alumni, Delta's men's faculty finished the evening strong with a big win over the Delta Panther boys' hoops team.
The Panther boys' team set up their chance to be undefeated with a win over the alumni but could not handle the elevated play by the faculty.
Many people took part in a silent auction for various items.
Delta faculty member Don Vigil held the winning ticket for the Troy Tulowitzki game jersey. Vigil was the first person to buy tickets for the jersey according to event organizer Vicie DeLisle.
The March 29 event was a success with over $4000 dollars being raised for scholarship opportunities for Delta High School students.blog comments powered by Disqus
