Teams from Orcas, Friday Harbor, Bellingham and Mt. Vernon competed in the third annual 5-on-5 tournament at the Orcas high school gyms on March 14. All proceeds benefited the Orcas Booster Club.

The winning team was organized by Jack Gates, an Orcas High School graduate who now goes to college in Bellingham. He and his friends, calling themselves Chocolate Drop, came in first after a more than 7-hour day of basketball. The team members are: Gates, Von Holmes, Jared Wells, Blake Brogan and brothers Trevin and Kelby Todd.
