Tournament Chairman Henry Mabbett said the turnout was better than at previous tournaments.
Last year, the tournament raised $20,000. He said he hoped the tournament would raise even more money this year.
After he spoke, Griffin-Spalding County School System Superintendent Curtis Jones came forward.
“On behalf of the school system, thank you,” he said.
He said participants were making a difference.
School System Community Services Director Anna Burns said the money raised at the event will be used for grants and scholarships for teachers. The grants, either $1,000 or $300, will be used for items like math programs or reading books, while the scholarships will be used for additional teacher education.
School System Communications Specialist Elizabeth Benz said Spalding High School’s team took first place in the tournament, while DGR Holdings’ team took second and ARI’s team took third.
“We are very appreciative of the community that came out to support us,” she said.
