Sweet Tea Classic in Burlington Features Dogs From 7 States

Burlington, NC — More than 250 dogs from seven states faced off  in the fast, fun sport of flyball over the weekend.

Fifty teams competed in the “Sweet Tea Classic” tournament.

Flyball is a sport that involves teams of four dogs who compete in a relay race.  Dogs must clear four hurdles to reach a box where they trigger the release of a ball and then carry that ball back over the four hurdles.  Then, their next teammate completes the cycle.  The fastest team wins.

The Fun Fur flyball club in Mebane sponsored the tournament.
