Students from Union Alternative School, 5656 S. 129th E. Ave., raised $250 during the Union Alternative Softball Tournament Sept. 29, teacher Doug Nelson said, noting 115 students participated including 35 from Union.
Eight teams - Cleveland, Claremore, Owasso, two teams from Jenks and three teams from Union - competed in the all-day double-elimination tournament held at the ball diamonds on the west side of Union High School, 6636 S. Mingo Road.
Jenks No. 1 won the tournament, Nelson reported. The big winner was United Way and the way students exhibited good character during the charity-raising event.
"Students from Union Alternative helped to make the tournament run well," Nelson said. "We used two different fields with many committees to pull off the tournament. The staff of Union Alternatve all worked hard and poitched in anywhere they could to make sure this event was a success."
Already, Union is looking forward to next year's event.
