Sheriff’s Office hosts 6th Annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

On July 18, 2015, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office hosted our 6th Annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament. Nearly 50 staff members participated in the tournament, which took place at the Washington City Community Center. The Sheriff’s Office hosts many PT events, and this has certainly become one of our more enjoyable events. It turned out to be a great event, not just for the players, but for everyone who attended! This included a significant number of co-workers, friends and family (especially children) who came out to support our employees.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office would like to congratulate the champions of our 6th Annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, the team of Mackenzie Utter, Bryan Wheat and Andy Yergensen! Once again, the tournament was extremely competitive, with many games going right down to the wire. In the end, the winning team had to play a total of six games in just four hours to take home the championship!

This year also saw the return of the coveted ‘Jackie Moon Award’, which was voted on by those in attendance and usually goes to the most “entertaining” player in the field. This year, due to a number of sympathy votes for his mangled finger, the award was presented to Jake Schultz.

As always, the Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all of those who helped to make this event possible. We would like to specifically extend our thanks to Deputy Matt Robinson, Lieutenant John Zwahlen and our Training Coordinator, Carl Johnston, for helping to coordinate and facilitate the event. Without their help, an event like this could never take place. We also would like to extend a very special thanks to Karrin Becker and the staff at the Washington City Community Center, for graciously allowing us to use their facilities for this event.
