Last Monday, Sullivan partnered with Friends of Sullivan to host its 3rd Annual MLK Holiday Hoops, having nine elementary schools participate in the tournament with over 100 kids playing their hearts out. Roger Park’s Builder’s Group helped raise funds to host and run the event, while In the Light Studios (ILS) was able to capture the high energy of the day. The day was filled with emotion as teams played their hardest and gave their all. The championship game was intense as both Horace Mann and Triumph Sports Academy played head-to-head, with Triumph winning by one point.
