The Steel Cans out of Raleigh took gold in the Womenís 55 Plus. The Mocksville womenís team won silver.
The Menís 60-64 gold winners were the Steel performance team out of Greensboro, with Salisbury Humana Ringers taking Silver.
The Menís 55-59 was the largest group with Raleigh Wazee, Wilkesboro Warriors, Durham and two teams from Salisbury Humana Ringers team A and B. After five games, the 55-59 group played out the final with the Raleigh Wazee team taking home the Gold medal. Second place went to Durham and the Salisbury Humana Ringers took bronze.
It was a long day of play, but thatís what Senior Games across the state of North Carolina is all about, keeping seniors 55 years of age and older active and independent, said Phyllis Loflin-Kluttz, senior games coordinator for Rowan County.
ěThis was my first basketball tournament for my three teams and I look forward to hosting many more,î she said.
