2016 Andy Bennett Tournament Scheduled for Friday/Saturday, October 7-8
The Rhinebeck Central School District’s annual Andy Bennett Sports Tournament will take place this year on Columbus Day weekend, with the first contests beginning after school on Friday, October 7th, and concluding Saturday, October 8th, 2016. Andy Bennett was a student/athlete at Rhinebeck High School who excelled at soccer, basketball, and baseball before he tragically passed away during his senior year as the result of a car accident.
Andy is remembered as an individual who was energetic and passionate about sports as well as life. The Andy Bennett Sports Tournament began as a way to remember Andy each year and has expanded over the years to include more sports, teams and visiting schools.
An October Tournament will allow more alumni who are away at college to attend, as well as provide more preparation time for our students to develop spirit week activities and other events to celebrate our school. More information will be forthcoming!
