The Elmhurst Airborne fifth grade boys green team were tournament champs in last weekend's fourth annual Elmhurst Airborne Roundball Winter Classic. A total of 122 teams competed in 183 games on Jan. 4 and 5.

The tournament not only supports the Elmhurst Airborne travel basketball club, but is also a major fundraiser for the local food pantry. Spectators are asked to bring a non-perishable food item or donate $1 at the door.
