In just 48 hours we will be tipping off the 25th annual Lash/Chronicle tournament at Carver high school.  With the tournament celebrating it’s silver anniversary, this year feels a bit more special than years past.

The games will be played on Dec. 23, 29 and 30.  There will be a total of three games on each day and the start time of each game will be 4:30 p.m., 6 p.m. or 7:30 p.m.  All games will be played at Carver High School.

The field of seven teams have been seeded as follows; No. 1 Walkertown, No. 2 Mt. Tabor, No. 3 West Forsyth, No. 4 Parkland, No. 5 Winston-Salem Prep, No. 6 Carver and No. 7 Atkins.

As the No. 1 seed coming into the tournament, the Walkertown Wolfpack have received a bye and will not start play until Dec. 29.  The defending champions for the tournament are the Mount Tabor Spartans.

The Day One match ups are as follows; No. 4 Parkland vs. No. 5 Winston-Salem Prep, then No. 6 Carver vs. West Forsyth and to close the night, No. 7 Atkins vs. No. 2 Mount Tabor.  The winner of the Parkland vs. Winston-Salem Prep game will face off against No. 1 seed Walkertown in the first game of Day Two.

The Lash/Chronicle tournament is brought to you by the dedicated sponsors of Reynolds American, HanesBrands Inc., Russell Funeral Home, Winston-Salem State University and the city of Winston-Salem.

Robert Wynn, creator and coordinator of the tournament, says this year means more due to the passing of Wilhelmena Lash, wife of tournament namesake David Lash.  Wynn says he wishes to continue honoring Mr. and Mrs. Lash through the tournament and feels “there was no better person we could have chosen to name the tournament after.”
