KENSINGTON – For only the second time in the 16-year history of the Kensington Intermediate-Senior High School (KISH) Alumni basketball tournament, and the second time in three years, the KISH senior boys won the championship game on Saturday.

This time, the Torchmen, led by Aiden Harrington’s 34 points and a 23-point effort from Jake Reynolds, posted a convincing 75-50 victory over the 2009-2013 Alumni. Mitchell Bernard (17) and Harmi Singh (14) were the top point-getters for the Alumni.

The KISH senior girls also looked sharp in their game against the women’s Alumni team, passing, shooting and defending their way to an impressive 70-57 victory.

Kelsey Haslam (22 points) and Hannah Harrington (20) led the way for the KISH senior girls. Alyson Campbell (15) and Ashley Harding (11) paced the Alumni team. The game was close throughout, but the high school girls pulled away in the last quarter.   



The men’s tournament included four games, with three alumni teams and the current KISH squad.

The “Old Guys” team, consisting of players who graduated in the last millennium, two of which are collecting the OAS, had a see-saw battle with the KISH team, and trailed by three points with 10 seconds left in the game before losing 71-65.

Jake Reynolds scored 29 points and Aidan Harrington added 20 for the Torchmen while Matthew Crane led the Old Guys with 28.

In the second game, the 2009-2013 Alumni extended a three-point halftime lead to a hard-fought 62-56 victory over the 2000-2008 Alumni.

Singh (14) and Derek Profit (10) led the balanced attack for the 2009-2013 Alumni. Jeff Cole chipped in 13 points for the 2000-2008 Alumni.

This left the Old Guys playing the next oldest guys from 2000-2008 in the consolation game. The Old Guys showed they still had some skills by posting a 61-53 victory. Aaron Adams and Kent Thompson scored 14 and 13 points for the Old Guys while Chad MacLeod sunk four three pointers and scored 16 for the younger Alumni.   

The KISH Alumni tournament began in 1998 as a Christmas-time tradition to promote the sport of basketball.
