Middle school basketball teams came to Del Norte this weekend for The Classic: Eric Epperson Memorial.

“John Horner and myself decided that it would be nice to do a tournament in Eric’s name here,” said tournament organizer Marc Slayton. “Eric was a coach at Crescent Elk and taught there for 15 or 16 years. We wanted to do something that would carry on his legacy. He was always around kids. He coached kids and he loved kids. This is a way to remember him.”

The tournament grew from last year, with enough teams for two seventh grade divisions and two eighth grade divisions. Last year, there was only one seventh grade division and two three-team eighth grade divisions.
