Decatur Girls Hosting Coleman Tournament

BERLIN- After finishing the first part of the regular season with an impressive 4-1 mark, Stephen Decatur’s girls’ varsity basketball team this weekend will play host to the annual John Coleman Holiday Tournament.
The Decatur girls routed Wicomico, 64-30, on December 13 and followed that up with an impressive 53-37 win over Easton last Wednesday. The Seahawks finished the first part of the regular season with a 4-1 mark, their only loss coming to Mardela back on December 11. After a short break for the holidays, the Decatur girls will be back in action this week when they play host to the annual Coleman Tournament.
The annual tournament, named for long-time Worcester County Public Schools Administrator John Coleman, has become one of the highlights of the holiday basketball tournament schedule over the years although its configuration has been altered several times. For the last couple of years, however, the tournament has strictly been an all-girls event featuring Decatur, Snow Hill and Pocomoke and this year will be no different. This weekend, Decatur will play host to a round-robin format with Snow Hill, Pocomoke and at-large invitee Northhampton.
The action starts with Decatur hosting Northhampton at 2 p.m. on Friday and the rest of the games will be determined by what happens on the court. Last year, the Decatur girls swept their two games, beating Snow Hill, 77-46, in their opener before edging Pocomoke, 55-45, in their second game.
