The third annual Canfield Cardinal Classic boys basketball tournament took place at Canfield Village Middle School Dec. 3-4 and Dec. 10-11.

The 2016 tournament included a total of 26 fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade teams.

Canfield High School boys basketball players volunteered their help at the tournament, including working the scorers table. Player parents also volunteered throughout the tournament, helping at the concession stand and working the admittance table.

Proceeds from the annual tournament will benefit the boys Basketball Boosters. The boosters use the money to buy a large piece of equipment each year, such as a shooting machine, and the proceeds also help defray the cost of summer camps and shootouts.

As for the champions of each division, the Canfield Cardinals won the fourth-grade division, the Boardman Spartans won the fifth-grade division and the Canfield Cardinals won the sixth-grade division.
