SOMERS, N.Y. – Somers High School will hold its inaugural “Tusker Madness” on Wednesday to kick off its upcoming basketball seasons.
The school will introduce each of its basketball teams during festivities from 7 to 9 p.m. The boys and girls 4-8 SYSO travel teams, freshman teams, junior varsity teams and varsity teams will all appear.
The SYSO teams will have contests and both the boys and girls varsity teams will put on demonstrations. A DJ will also play music at the event.
The two varsity basketball teams came up with the idea. The coaches brought it up to the booster club at its monthly meeting, and the club loved the idea, according to member Bob Prisco.
Both the boys and girls varsity teams have new coaches this season. Chris DiCintio, who coached at Rye for 11 years, replaced Mark Tanzi on the boys team. Kristi Dini coached at Briarcliff and took over for Kate Kadlubowski on the girls team.
“With two new coaches taking the leadership positions, we just wanted to make sure that Somers is excited for the upcoming basketball seasons,” Prisco said.
