The 8th annual Riverdale Holiday Basketball Tournament was held on Dec. 28-29. In smaller fashion than in previous years, Riverdale hosted 8 teams over two days with some exciting basketball.
The Maverick girls who were riddled with injuries and illness, took on Mt. Vernon Christian Hurricanes (WA) on the first day of competition, losing 44-32, sending Riverdale to the consolation bracket versus Faith Bible Christian. Riverdale ultimately lost their consolation game, 38-21, where they received fourth place in the girls bracket. The Amity Warriors met the Mt. Vernon Hurricanes in the championship game on day two of the tournament. Amity dominated the competition, winning 45-27, taking home the tournament trophy.
The Maverick boys were matched with the Mt. Vernon Christian Hurricanes (WA) on day one of the tournament, where they were victorious, 57-50. For the second day of the tournament, Riverdale was matched with the Amity Warriors for the championship game. However, Riverdale’s defense wasn’t enough to stop Amity, where they lost 47-36. The Amity boys also took home the championship trophy.
Thank you to all the volunteers and teams who continue to make the Riverdale Holiday Basketball Tournament a success.
