Custer Tourney Raises Over $10,000

Often times in sports and in life, a special person can make memories with you that will last a lifetime. In August 2008, 2007 Sheridan graduate Megan Custer passed away following injuries sustained from a car accident. On Saturday afternoon at Sheridan High School, her memory lived on at one of her favorite places, the basketball court.

Fittingly on June 23rd, #23 was honored in the third annual Megan Custer 3-on-3 basketball tournament. 45 teams featuring boys and girls as well as men and women, played in different age brackets, all in the memory of one young lady while raising money for the megan custer scholarship fund.  There was also a silent auction, with items ranging from current NBA and local celebrity Kevin Martin autographed shoes to gift certificates to local businesses. All in all, this year's event raised over $10,000 with part of the proceeds going to the Sheridan Lady Generals basketball program as well as the Megan Custer Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships of varying amounts every spring to aspiring young students who share some of the same qualities as Megan.

The Custer family as well as the Sheridan Lady Generals would like to thank everyone for their support, time, and effort in helping put on the event this year.  If you are interested in donating to the scholarship fund or buying a "Custer Tourney 2012" T-Shirt, contact Angie Custer at (740) 787-2414.
