KENT — The South Kent varsity basketball faced down Wooster to win its division of the Hudson Valley Athletic League (HVAL) championship tournament.

“We came out fast and took an early lead,” said coach Gary Benz.

Wooster led the Cardinals 32-31 at the half. When the game resumed after the break, Wooster came back with the same shooting energy.

With 5:30 to go, Wooster still led South Kent by nine points.
