Pa ;e 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2017 By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press ' PARK RIVER, N.D. -- There's a shooting game in basketball called "Around the World" where players try to make shots from many different spots on the floor. If you make them all before your opponent you win the game. For a recent Park River Area grad that term took on a different mean- ing this summer. A 13 hour flight from Los Angles definitely qual- ifies for around the world mode. Dylan Chally of Adams and a 2017 Park River Area High School graduate had the chance to play in a basketball tournament in Aus- tralia this past June. Dylan was the only North Dakotan on a team that won five games and lost four. "We beat all but one of the six Australian teams by about 20 or so points but lost to the four teams from America," said Dylan, "but we played those teams right down to the wire." Dylan was on a team made up of :himself, four players from South Dakota, two from Min- nesota, two from Oregon and one from Iowa. Overall there were eight teams representing Australia and eight from the United States. "The players that were there were pretty great players," said Dylan. "It's not like most of the players we see up here." The coach of Dylan's team was Austin Thorns from Indiana. Dylan's morn, Amy Chally, ac- companied him on the trip that in- cluded a stop over in Hawaii. The players' home base was Queensland, also known as the Gold Coast. "The city was like cities here in the U.S " Dylan said, "except that they drive on the other side of the road." Other than that, things were pretty much like they are here, well, except their burgers are a whole lot small- er than the ones here." As for highlights aside from basketball, the three day stop over was fun. "Being in Hawaii was definitely a highlight," said Dylan, "swimming in an ocean and watching a performance at the Polynesian Center was really fun." Their time in Australia wasn't all basketball either. "We got a lit- tle time offto sightsee," said Dy- lan. "We went to a zoo and got some pictures of koalas and kan- garoos." But other than that all their time was spent playing basketball. "This was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone and if anyone else ever gets the chance, I would highly encourage them to go," he said. Photos: Submitted.
