The Rutland Rec team won last year's Glodzik championship. This
year, March 9-15, will mark the 54th annual Glodzik Tournament.
This popular basketball tournament will feature 37 teams made up of
5/6-grade boys and girls. PEGTV will broadcast many of the games on
PEGTV, Rutland County's public access television station, is
partnering up with the West Rutland Booster Club to sponsor the
54th annual West Rutland Glodzik Basketball Tournament taking place
from March 9-15. This year's invitational tournament features 37
teams, both boys and girls, at the 5/6-grade age level.
Twenty-five years ago the tournament was named after the late Ed
Glodzik, who was a coach and had a son who played in the
tournament. Due to the popularity and caliber of the tournament,
girl's basketball was added for the first time last year with the
support of the Glodzik family.
PEGTV will be filming the games from the opening weekend, some
games throughout the week, and the championship game, which takes
place Friday, March 15. These games will be broadcast on PEGTV
channel 15 and DVDs of the games will be available for purchase,
with the money being donated back to the West Rutland Booster Club
to help support next year's tournament.
The championship game is guaranteed to be a spectacular event.
The West Rutland Booster Club goes all out to make the experience a
memorable one for the teams and the spectators, which involves
NBA-type introductions, a light show, and giveaways from the
Boosters and PEGTV.
"PEGTV is thrilled to be involved with the 54th annual Glodzik
Basketball Tournament and we are glad to give this tournament the
coverage it deserves to showcase the incredible local talent and
the great job the Boosters do every year to make it a memorable
experience the kids will never forget," says PEGTV Executive
Director Michael Valentine.
If you are unable to watch the tournament games on cable they
