Garfield/Palouse High School senior-to-be Ely Hawkins will represent the State of Washington on a high school basketball team which will make a 10-day trip to Queensland, Australia, beginning July 16.

Under a program called Down Under Sports, U.S. teams will play against Australian teams in a tournament under international (FIBA) rules.

Down Under Sports, International Sports Specialists, Inc., was formed in 1989 in New Zealand with a goal to provide athletes an opportunity to experience Australia and New Zealand within the framework of sports. Its United States office is in North Logan, Utah.

Hawkins has played on the Garfield/Palouse Vikings hoop team.

Each participant must raise the money to cover the cost of the trip. Donations to support Hawkins will be accepted at Box 6, Garfield, WA 99130.
