Hope on the Hill’s first church league basketball program has given local youth something to shoot for this summer.
“It’s been a great success,” said the Rev. Wayne Murray, executive director of Hope on the Hill. “It gives kids something to do. Most of the kids (85-90 percent) are off the street, which makes it quite successful.”
The program, which started in April and will end with finals July 14, has drawn 202 boys and girls, ages 8-17. Eleven churches fielded 14 teams for the league, directed by Dennis Brown.
