On March 7, Lafayette’s National Honor Society (NHS) hosted their first annual 3 vs 3 Basketball Tournament in the Main Gym. All proceeds from the tournament went to CHADS Coalition for Mental Health, an organization based in St. Louis that focuses on raising awareness of and preventing young adult suicide and depression. In its first year, the tournament raised $277 and had seven teams participate including four high school boys teams and three middle school boys teams. In addition to basketball games, the tournament also put on a three point contest which 8th Grader Nate Dorner won by sinking 13 of 15 shots.
