Tournament Victors



Thompson Middle School’s eighth grade boys team won the Newport Recreation Department’s Thanksgiving basketball tournament championship in a come-from-behind victory over Portsmouth Middle School, after trailing by as much as 14 points in the second half. Thompson defeated Middletown earlier in the day to qualify for the championship game. Gabrielle Schenck and Jack Scrzypiec, both of Portsmouth, were awarded the George Triplett Good Sportsmanship Medal for their efforts as teammates and players in the Newport Recreation Department’s Thanksgiving basketball tournament.
