Special Sports basketball teams from across Central Wisconsin are at SPASH Jan. 30 to compete in the SPASH Basketball Invitational.
Teams competing included Colby-Abby, Green Lake County, Lakeland, Marshfield, Medford, South Wood County, Spencer, Waupaca and Wausau Metro.
Two local teams, SPASH Panthers and SPASH Awesome, were on hand as well as the Stevens Point YMCA Peeps, Raptors and Superstars.
The tournament is used for seeding teams that will head to UW-Stout Feb. 21 to compete for the opportunity to advance to the sectional tournament.
Division winners at Stout will move on to the UW-Stevens Point sectional on March 20th where teams will look to cement their spots in the state tournament in April at the Kolf Arena on the UW-Oshkosh campus.
