Due to his outstanding performance in the Montana All State High School Basketball Competition, Chris Auchenbach, son of Brian and Lori, has been invited to participate in the prestigious U.S. Eastern Regional Basketball Championships on July 12-18, 1999 in Columbus, Ohio.

Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the USA Junior Nationals provides one of the top amateur competitions in the United States and offers its program to all athletes who have a high interest in basketball and are interested in developing their skills and techniques through statewide, national, and international competition. This is a unique opportunity for all athletes to improve their basketball talent through highly organized competition. Information about our participating atheletes is provided to educational institutions throughout the U.S.

USA Junior Nationals offers one-day competitions at 34 sites throughout the country in the spring with competitions scheduled throughout the South, Midwest, East and West coasts. Athletes who demonstrate advanced skills, team leadership, competitive spirit, and good sportsmanship go on to the next level of play, which is the U.S. Eastern Regional Championships in Columbus, Ohio.

An account has been set up at the First Valley Bank in Seeley Lake for anyone wishing to donate to help defray the costs of Chris' trip to Ohio.
