Two Hoop Tourneys Here

A high school boys varsity and junior varsity tournament, the Kendall Madison Tip-Off Classic, and a tournament for youth teams are to be held at the high school this weekend.

Varsity and jayvee teams from Mattituck, Westhampton Beach, Pierson, and East Hampton are to vie in the Kendall Madison tourney, a fund-raiser for the Kendall Madison Foundation, which each spring awards mentoring scholarships to East Hampton High School seniors. This year’s winners were Thomas Nelson and Marina Preiss.

Saturday’s youth tourney, which the East Hampton Youth Basketball and Football organization is putting on from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will have divisions for six third-and-fourth-grade teams (two from East Hampton, two from Sacred Heart, on the North Fork, and one each from Shelter Island and Southampton) and for four fifth-and-sixth-grade teams from East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Shelter Island, and Southampton.

The varsity tourney begins tomorrow, with the Mattituck and Westhampton jayvees to play at the East Hampton Middle School at 5 p.m., followed by the East Hampton and Pierson jayvees at 6:15.

Mattituck and Westhampton’s varsity teams are to square off at the high school at 5, to be followed, at 6:15, by the East Hampton and Pierson varsities.

The consolation junior varsity and varsity games are to be contested at 5 p.m. at the middle school and high school on Saturday; the finals are to be played at 6:15.

Don Reese, head of the East Hampton Youth Football and Basketball organization, said the youth games are to be played on two courts at the high school from 11 a.m. to about 4 p.m. The third-and-fourth-grade championship and consolation games are to be played at 2; the fifth-and-sixth-grade championship and consolation games at 3.
