The Sanborn Central/Woonsocket (SCW) co-op had four teams participating in the Jamboree. The four teams included three girls’ teams. One made up of third and fourth graders, one from the fifth grade and one of sixth graders. The boys’ team was made up of third and fourth graders. 

The third/fourth grade teams each played three games. The SCW boys played against teams from Redfield, James Valley Christian and Wessington Springs. The SCW girls’ third/fourth grade team played two games against Wessington Springs and one game against Wolsey-Wessington. The kids gained great experience in play and teamwork during the Jamboree.
