Feb. 1, 2017: The annual Bronco Bonanza is set to take place on Saturday, and this year’s event will include a bit of Bronxville history.
The 1982 Bronco boys’ varsity basketball team will be in attendance to watch the current teams play and to relive fond memories of their days playing at Bronxville High School. The 1982 team won the Class C Gold Ball and made it the semifinals of the state championship.
The Bronco Bonanza is an all-day affair. Both boys’ and girls’ JV and varsity teams are scheduled to play, and fans are encouraged to dress up as their favorite movie character.
The girls’ basketball team (10-3) has a full week of competition. It faces Blind Brook today, Keio on Friday, and Edgemont on Saturday at 3:00 pm. The boys’ varsity team had a 63-20 win over Haldane last Saturday and will also play Edgemont at the Bronco Bonanza. The boys’ game is scheduled to start at 5:00 pm.
The boys’ and girls’ JV teams will each play Rye Neck. The girls’ game is at 11:00 am and the boys will play at 1:00 pm.
