RIDGEFIELD – Not only will Park Ridge head to New Year’s with a holiday title, it will celebrate with an unbeaten record.
The Owls won the Ridgefield Holiday boys basketball tournament crown Wednesday night with a 38-36 victory over the host after junior forward Tommy Morgan swished two free throws with 9.4 seconds remaining.
One year after managing only a consolation win in this tournament, veteran Park Ridge is 4-0 and appears capable of producing its first winning season since 2010-11.
“We’ve talked all season about trying to fight through adversity,” coach Adam Kaplan said. “We thought we’d find some today – and we had a lot in terms of missed shots and things just weren’t going our way. I’m proud of the guys for sticking with it and finally executing down the stretch.”
