The Wilson Housing Authority recently hosted a 3-on-3 basketball tournament at The SPOT gymnasium in honor of Father’s Day.
The teams were made up of residents and mentors from the organization’s three main public housing areas: EB Jordan Homes, Forrest Road Homes and Whitfield Homes. EB Jordan defeated Forrest Road in the final game to win the championship.
In addition to the basketball tournament, nurses from the Wilson Community Health Center were on site to do basic health screenings. Thirty-two people were seen during the two-hour event. Sponsoring organizations for the housing authority’s annual tournament were the Wilson Community Health Center, The SPOT, the city of Wilson Police Department and The Trophy Connection.
