Sault Ste. Marie Hosts 5th Straight Gus Macker Tournament

SAULT STE. MARIE – For the fifth consecutive year, Sault Ste. Marie welcomed in the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament Saturday and Sunday.

117 teams participated, with players coming from across the United States and Canada.

Katie Wollan, a Sault Ste. Marie native, says she’s been playing with the same girls since they were 8 years old.

“I tell my friends and family every year that I am going to be playing until I am 60. That’s not a joke. I truly love basketball, and I love the town of Sault Ste. Marie. I am just happy that we have Gus Macker in town. It brings a lot of people in,” says Wollan.

Proceeds from the tournament go to programs at the Middle School and High School, and also to the Sault Events, so they can continue providing more activities in the area.
