Alums Return Home For Inaugural Basketball Tournament
A wide range of younger and older alums returned home to Bay Ridge Prep on January 7, 2023, for the inaugural Alumni Basketball Tournament. Featuring dozens of alums and some faculty playing against one another in friendly competition, the tournament was held in the OLA Gym and then followed by a reception and alumni art gallery in the Upper School Building.
To kick off the tournament, four teams composed of alums and faculty played each other in half court warm up games. The teams then combined to form Team Blue and Team White, which competed in a full court match. With strong efforts by both teams, the score was nearly even throughout all four quarters. In the final minutes, however, Team Blue pulled ahead to finish the game 37-33.
During the reception at the school building, Head of School Charles Fasano thanked alums for coming to the event and reminded them that they always have a home at Bay Ridge Prep. The future of the school’s continued growth, he remarked, is dependent in part on alumni continuing to be involved. Dr. Fasano also gave alums in attendance an update on the Shore Road property that will be the new physical home of the Upper School in a few years and the site of many future alumni events.
