Top high school basketball teams from across Texas will hoop it up at the 55th Annual FiberMax® Caprock Classic in Lubbock, Texas, Dec. 26-28, 2013.

Net proceeds from the tournament help Caprock AMBUCS donate therapeutic tricycles, build wheelchair ramps and provide scholarships to therapists.
“At Bayer CropScience, our values run deep, as does our sense of responsibility and commitment to making our world a better place one community at a time,” said Jeff Brehmer, U.S. product manager for FiberMax and Stoneville®. “We demonstrate this commitment every day through community partnerships with organizations, such as Caprock AMBUCS, which share our vision and hopes for the future.”
Lubbock serves as the headquarters of global cotton operations for Bayer CropScience and is home to more than 100 employees. The Bayer CropScience team in Lubbock has long been a leading force in the community, providing financial, human and other resources to fuel positive community organizations and activities in the West Texas region, explained Brehmer.
“As the official cotton of the good life, FiberMax is committed to making the communities of West Texas better,” said Brehmer. “The people in West Texas have been highly supportive of FiberMax since it was introduced in 1998. Our support for the Caprock Classic is just one of the ways Bayer CropScience can give back to the community and hopefully help the great folks in West Texas enjoy the good life.”
