The Reynolds Demons alumni fell short in their repeat attempt as the alumni from Parkland were crowned the 2019 Elite Eight Basketball Tournament champions. A good time was had by all as alumni, family and friends gathered at the CP3 Academy to witness the festivities.

Throughout the decade-long tournament, the most important aspect has been the giving back. The tournament routinely collects toys to give to less fortunate children in the Winston-Salem area.  

The Elite Eight Alumni Association is establishing a great tradition of having fun with old friends, while also doing something important that will impact the lives of many others. That lesson has not fallen on deaf ears since the younger generation is listening and watching the impact the Elite Eight has had on the community.

Along with the flag football and basketball tournaments held during the holidays, the Elite Eight has events for the ladies as well. The kickball tournament will take place in early spring and there are conversations of having a softball tournament to further bring the community together, as well as having another opportunity to help others.

The goal for the Elite Eight is to expand their reach beyond their sporting events to help the community year-round, organizers say. With the commitment and dedication the organization has, there is no doubt they will accomplish their goals.
