The 18th-seeded Rye High School boys’ basketball team just shocked No. 2 Sleepy Hollow on the road, 54-39. The Garnets evened their record at 10-10 with the victory, and will now face the winner of No. 7 Tappan Zee and No. 10 Walter Panas February 17 on the winning team’s home court.
Rye began the season 2-5, but head coach Chris DiCintio said even then that his team had the tools to be a dangerous squad come Sectionals. His words now ring prophetic as the Garnets are one win away from a second consecutive trip to the Section Semifinals at the County Center.
The Rye girls’ basketball team fell to Albertus Magnus 56-37 in Rockland.
