Due to the changes made in the Class B bracket earlier in the week, the first round will be played today while the teams from Classes AA and A rest. There weren’t too many huge surprises in Thursday’s first round, with four road teams winning in New Ro, Suffern, Harrison and Beacon. For those keeping track, I went 14 for 16 with my first round picks. It’ll be tough to keep that percentage up moving forward, but I’ll take that batting average for now.
For Friday, my plan it to catch the North Salem-Briarcliff game. I honestly think that those are two teams capable of making it to the final four, with North Salem coming off of a championship game appearance last season and Briarcliff coming off of a very strong regular season. It’s certainly not an easy draw for the fourth-seeded Bears.
