Hoop It Up Attendance Tops 2,000

The 4th annual Carroll Chamber of Commerce Hoop It Up youth basketball tournament was a huge success and a positive tourism experience for Carroll. Local hotels were full, restaurants were packed, and local businesses were able to capitalize on all the fans in the stands checking out Carroll.
