The fifth and sixth grade boys from Big Bay de Noc recently participated in the Escanaba Xplosion basketball tournament held on March 17 and 18. For some, this was a first time outing. The junior Bears put forth great effort, but were knocked out of the tournament early. Front row, from left: Trevor Traun, Kellen Thill, Alex LaLonde and Christopher Chaperon.
