The Rye Recreation girls’ middle school basketball team made history in March, advancing to the championship game of the Midget Division for the first time in the 27-year existence of the Westchester County Girls’ Rec Tournament. Although they lost 40-15 to a veteran Shrub Oak team, the path Rye blazed to the County Center was unforgettable.
