Greenlawn, NY: Another Coral Park Basketball Co-Ed Basketball Tournament is in the
books! 
For the fifth year in a row, Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer and the Town of Huntington have worked with the community to host the Coral Park Co-Ed Basketball Tournament thattook place this past Saturday. “The tournament has grown in size and in our
hearts over the past 5 years. It’s an event I look forward to every year thatbrings people together for camaraderie and for the love of the game,” stated
Legislator William R. Spencer.


The tournament drew out dozens of athletes from the Town of Huntington, ranging in age from 12 to 18. Several half-court games were played throughout the day with a competitive final championship full-court game. The tournament also added an alumni game of athletes who have participated in past years.

 

"Basketballis a game that develops many skills – hand-eye coordination, speed, and good
balance are all necessary but the intangible skills that our kids learn fromthe game are the most important: critical thinking, teamwork and
perseverance," said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci. "We hope that allof our kids left the tournament having grown in skill, character, and
experience."


 

DavidHarris, a beloved member of the Huntington community who tragically died years
ago is memorialized through the tournament’s MVP award. The MVP award was givento Omari Stephen and Leisaan Hibbert. The alumnus MVP was given to Damique
Reddick. Damique has played in several Coral Park Basketball Tournaments and isa 2016 graduate of John Glenn High School.


 

The
tournament was supported by local businesses and organizations includingSpuntino’s who provided pizza, 7-Eleven provided water, Suffolk County PAL
provided medals for the athletes, Vision 
Long Islandprovided ice and watermelon, First Class Bagels provided refreshments and Petro
Home Services who provided 80 free t-shirts for the athletes. The SuffolkCounty Police Explorers, 2nd Police Precinct and the Town of Huntington Parks Department and General Services were also on hand for support throughout the day.
