It’s almost time for the ‘Gold Ball’, y’all! The 64th annual Seven Hills Rotary Rome News-Tribune Holiday Festival Basketball Tournament will be held December 18th through 22nd. Boys’ and girls’ basketball teams from 10 area high schools will compete in the tournament at Georgia Highlands and Berry Colleges.
The annual tip-off luncheon for the tournament was held on Tuesday at the regular meeting of the Seven Hills Rotary Club. Local sports broadcaster Randy Davis of WLAQ AM 1410 and 95.7 FM The Ridge served as master of ceremonies. Panelists this year included former West Rome basketball standout Consuelo “NaeNae” Daniels-Saxton and former West Rome girls’ coach Ann Peery.
NaeNae, who also played basketball at the University of Alabama, now enjoys watching her daughter Victaria Saxton play for the Model Lady Blue Devils in the “Christmas tournament”. She says that she’s accumulated many great memories as both a player and as a basketball mom.
There’s one thing that Victaria has that NaeNae never got – a Gold Ball. As a matter of fact, Victaria’s Lady Blue Devils have won the coveted trophy for the last two years. Daniels-Saxton says that she’s happy to celebrate with her daughter.
