ST. AMANT - Ascension Parish basketball teams met Thursday night in the Gold Dome for the annual jamboree.

The night included four matches with 10-minute halves.

In girls action, Donaldsonville took on Dutchtown to start the jamboree.

The East Ascension and St. Amant girls played in the second game.

A pair of boys games closed out the night, as the first was Dutchtown taking on East Ascension.

The host team, St. Amant, faced Lutcher in the final game.

The gracious hosts served a jambalaya meal to the teams and others involved in the jamboree.

The teams will open the regular season next week.
