The 12U Green Hornets boys basketball team coached by Sean Abell participated in the Basketball Coaches Without Boundaries Tournament over the winter holiday break. The tournament was held at Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick. During day one of the tournament, the boys fell to a strong Monocacy team in the opener and then battled D1SA Sport out of Loudon County, Virginia in the night cap, yielding to the eventual tournament champion in a tough, close contest. Sunday was a different story as the boys regrouped and defeated IronHorse Basketball out of Brunswick and then soundly defeated Linganore to win the bracket.
Said coach Abell, “It says a lot about the boys’ toughness to come back and finish that tournament strong after playing as hard as we did late into the evening on Saturday, coming up short against two very good teams. I think Brunswick and Linganore were expecting a different outcome.”
The Green Hornets are 16-5 overall on the season combining tournaments and league play in both the Anne Arundel County 12U A League as well as the Harundale Youth Sports League. Severna Park has wins over Bowie, GORC, Millersville, Maryland 3D, Glen Burnie, Lake Shore, St Mary’s and Harundale.
The 12U Green Hornets are Brandon Tenenbaum, Nick DiNunzio, George Vandiver, Brady Fox, Anthony Harris, Brendan Abell, Nathan Murphy and Sean Williams. They are coached by Sean Abell, Todd Tenenbaum and Alex Vandiver.
