Champlain Valley Union High School will host a basketball tournament later this week in honor of its former athletic director who passed away last year.
The inaugural Kevin Riell basketball tournament will take place at the Hinesburg school from Thursday through Saturday.
Riell, the school’s long-time AD, passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 15, 2014. All proceeds from the event, including admission and ‘Keeping It Riell’ shirts, will go toward the the Kevin Riell scholarship fund, CVU girls basketball coach Ute Otley said.
The Redhawks invited teams from Burlington, BFA-St. Albans, Rutland, Burr and Burton and Mount Abraham to participate in the three-day tournament that concludes Saturday with a four-game set of consolation and championship rounds.
Otley and CVU boys basketball coach Mike Osborne organized the event. Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for students. CVU students will be admitted for free.
