Holy Cross High School will honor one of its own on Saturday, June 8, when the Flushing school holds the first annual Ryan Fitzgerald 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament.
The event will benefit the Ryan Fitzgerald 93 Scholarship Fund. Fitzgerald, who played basketball at the school during his senior season in 1992-93, was one of more than 3,000 people who died as a result of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. Fitzgerald worked at the World Trade Center for Fiduciary Trust.
The event, which will be held at Holy Cross, at 26-20 Francis Lewis Blvd., Flushing, will feature four divisions, 18-30, 30 and up, 40 and up and womens in 3-on-3 competition. The cost per team to enter is $200 (four players max per team), which includes t-shirts, refreshments, a DJ, three-point contest, prizes for first- and second-place finishers and Mets and Yankees tickets.
Check-in is at 10 a.m. with the three-point contest tipping off the festivities at 10:30 a.m. The first game will start at 11 a.m.
