Johnson Job Corps took first place in the Smoky Mountain Conference Basketball Tournament.

The men had a great season with no double losses to any team in the conference. Despite being ranked third going into the tournament, the team was seen as a major contender.

There were some concerns with a few seasoned players being lost to graduation just before the tournament, but new faces stepped up to the challenge.

Coach Bucholz said, “I am very proud of how the team performed both on and off the court.

The Lyndon B. Johnson CCC is associated with the National Forests of North Carolina. The USDA Forest Service operates 28 Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers across 18 states with the capacity of 6,200 students.
