The Fontbonne Hall Academy, Bay Ridge, varsity softball team hosted its second annual Autism Awareness Tournament on April 30. This year, 20 teams took part in a scrimmage format, with each team playing two games. The tournament raised just over $9,000 donated to the foundation Autism Speaks.
Brian Nash, a former all-city basketball player at Bishop Ford H.S., Park Slope, who spent time as the head basketball coach at St. Francis College, Brooklyn Heights, has been named the new director of basketball at IMG Academy, an athletic training institute for youth, high school, college and professional athletes. He brings over 20 years of NCAA Division I coaching experience to his new role. “For more than 20 years, I have taken tremendous pride in helping develop student-athletes both on and off the court at various colleges and in various stages of their lives, so I am very excited to join the IMG Academy family,” Nash said. “I look forward to bringing that experience to this basketball program and helping take it to the next level.”
