Darien Foursome Help Seventh-Grade All-Star Team

DARIEN, Conn. - Darien seventh-graders Alex Preston, Jackson Ryan, Carter Scott and Zak Swetye were selected as part of the Connecticut Premier Hoops U-13 All-Star Team. The foursome participated in the Brewster, N.Y., Tip-Off Classic against some of the top youth basketball players in Connecticut and New York. The U-13 All-Star Team went 2-1 in Sunday’s games.

In the first game, Premier downed the host team Nor’East Lightning, 60-53. In its second game, Premier gave the eventual champions, Phoenix Basketball U-14’s, all they could handle, before losing 61-51. The game was close all the way through. In the third game, Premier rallied from a second-half deficit of 17 points to beat the Kingston Komets (N.Y.), 65-64, in overtime. Ryan hit three consecutive three-pointers to spark the comeback in that game.

Next up for the Premier U-13’s is the Rock Classic tournament this weekend. This tournament is in various Bronx and Long Island high school and college gyms. The U-13 field will contain 15 teams from the greater New York City region. The winner will qualify to play in a national tournament at Disney World in Florida.
