The 13th annual Fulton Cup gets underway next week at the Tournament Capital Centre and Thompson Rivers University gymnasium.

The tournament — which decides a city high-school champion — gets underway on Wednesday, Dec. 19, and runs to Friday, Dec. 21.

There will be 48 games played featuring 32 teams — from NorKam, South Kamloops, St. Ann's, Valleyview, Westsyde, Ashcroft, Barriere and Chase secondaries, along with Kamloops Christian School.

There are eight teams in each of the four divisions — senior boys, senior girls, junior boys and junior girls.

Games start at noon each day and wrap up at 10 p.m.

The event is sponsored by Fulton and Company and the provincial AA tournament committee.

Up to 32 bursaries will be awarded by tournament's end and all-star teams and MVPs will be named in each division.
