Section 1 basketball returning to County Center

FILE PHOTO Section 1 basketball is coming
home to the Westchester County
North Salem girls basketball plays in a Section 1 Class C semifinal game Center.
at the Westchester County Center in 2016.
e White Plains arena had
hosted varsity boys and girls cham-
pionship basketball games since
1933. But in 2018, both semi nals
and nals games were moved to
Pace University, much to the cha-
grin of many players and coaches
who viewed the County Center as
the Mecca of Section 1 basketball.

Earlier this year, the Section 1
Executive Committee approved a
return of the boys and girls cham-
pionship games the County Center.

Now, following another vote by
the committee on Friday, Oct. 4,
the semi nal games are also com-
ing home.

George Latimer, Westchester
County executive, lauded the com-
mittee’s decision.

“I remember fondly driving up
from Mount Vernon when I was
in high school to see the Section 1
games,” Latimer said in a press re-
lease Friday, Oct. 4. “I’m so thrilled
that young people in this County
will now get to experience the same
thing I did—going to the County
Center under the lights and hear

the cheers. Today’s decision
marks another great day for
Westchester County high-
school basketball players and
their families, friends and fans.
Get ready for some great bas-
ketball this spring!”

e games will take place
from March 2 to March 9.
