Carmel Academy capped off an exciting basketball season by hosting its annual Seder Plate Basketball Tournament on Sunday, February 10, at its Greenwich campus.
The five-school tournament included Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy, Ezra Academy, Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Hartford and Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy. More than 70 varsity athletes competed in games throughout the day.
Carmel Academy’s girls varsity took the first place trophy, winning all of their tournament games, including a game that went into triple overtime. Carmel’s boys varsity team also placed in the tournament, taking home the second place trophy.
“There was a wonderful sense of community, with athletes throughout Connecticut congregating on our campus,” said Carmel Academy Athletic Director and tournament organizer Phil Goldberg. “Our students were filled with such pride to be the tournament host. Our young athletes worked hard throughout the season and played with tremendous heart, compassion, pride and spirit. They showed exemplary sportsmanship and respect for one another and their guests.”
