SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- The bleachers were packed with supporters Saturday, when the Sleepy Hollow girls basketball team faced off against Nyack and the boys basketball team competed against crosstown rivals Ossining in the 24th Annual Howard Godwin Sleepy Hollow Holiday Basketball Tournament.
The final four teams competed on Thursday and Friday as part of the three-day tournament, in which seven different high schools from the region were represented-- Sleepy Hollow, Mamaroneck, Tuckahoe, Ossining, Yonkers, Gorton and Nyack.
The Nyack girls team and the Ossining boys team emerged as winners in the tournament. Running for 24 years, the tournament is completely supported by the family of the late Howard Godwin, who was an avid supporter of the Tarrytown Schools and a lifelong basketball fan.
All proceeds from the tournament are donated directly to the athletic varsity awards dinner at Sleepy Hollow High School.
