Two of Ridley’s senior boys’ basketball team members participated in the Niagara Regional All-star basketball game. This game featured the top 20 players selected by a coaches poll from across the Niagara Region. Because Ridley plays in the Independent school league, the fact that 2 of our players were even selected speaks volumes of the attention and talent that our school presently has in our basketball program. Cooper Rigg played on the Zone 4 team (St. Catharines/Grimsby) scored 10 points, a few blocks and fit in perfectly with his new teammates. Geno Bullard ran the point against Cooper on the Zone 3 team (Welland/Niagara Falls/Fort Erie) had 5 points and double digit assists. Congratulations and well done to both of these athletes!
