ACIT is on an indefinite hiatus

August 23rd, 2023 by WCBC Radio

An Allegany County tradition that dates back to 1961 has apparently come to an end.  Wamba Caravan 89 has announced that the ACIT is on an indefinite hiatus.  The Alhambra cited several factors in the decision, including costs, changes in high school basketball state regulations, and competing tournaments.  The ACIT began in 1961 at Saints Peter and Paul gymnasium under the leadership of Joe Divico and spent the next decade and a half at Allegany High School before moving to Frostburg State University.  Joe Carter directed the tournament for 20 years after Divico’s death.  The tournament had become appointment viewing for three days in March for 61 years.
