Croton-Harmon High School’s basketball teams, along with the community, paid tribute to the men and women who serve in the military during the Hoops for Heroes: Saluting Our Men and Women of the Armed Forces event on Jan. 28.
“Our third annual event was a huge success,” said boys varsity basketball coach Ben Martucci. “It was an important league win, but more importantly, we were able to raise money and honor all of our men and women of the armed forces.”
Both the girls and boys basketball teams earned wins that day – the boys defeated Westlake, 54-36, and the girls came out on top versus Palisades Prep, 56-14. In the other boys games, Bronxville defeated Haldane and Yorktown beat Hendrick Hudson.
“Our team was led by the defensive performance of senior captain Rory Parker, and the scoring of freshman Sean Macarchuk and senior captain Charlie Goldberg,” said Martucci. “Sean broke the all-time school record with eight 3-point field goals made in a single game.”
The tribute was made possible through the support of the Booster Club and Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School teacher Patricia Lynch, who volunteered her time during the event.
The day’s proceeds were donated to two non-profit organizations – The Barry Fixler Foundation and Hope for Warriors.
“It was a special night,” said Martucci.
