Three day tourney boasts girls and boys.

December 5, 2013 - Today through Saturday marks the 11th Annual Sidwell Friends Invitational, a gem of an early season high school tournament held at that iconic Northwest, DC school. Every year future college talent from a swath of school in different locals/leagues face off.

This weekend is no exception, with SFS, Evangel Christian (VA), Chavez (DC), St. Albans (DC), Calvert Hall (MD), Takoma Academy (MD), Pallotti (MD) and Mckinley Tech (DC) battling on boy's action. That's six private schools and two public funded institutions participating, with Baltimore (Calvert Hall) and Northern Virginia (Evangel) being represented plus of course the DMV.

League wise for boys, there are eight different ones present this year, including DC's Charter School League (Chavez), the IAC (St. Albans), MAC (SFS), DCIAA (Mckinley), MIAA (B) (Pallotti), MIAA (A) (Calvert Hall), while Takoma and Evangel are both independent schools.

From a girl's perspective, Episcopal (IAC), and Thurgood Marshall (DC Charter) are participating, as are the ISL's SFS, Holton-Arms and Georgetown Day.

Cost is a reasonable two bucks for students, double that when it comes to adults, each day. Talk about a deal!
