Hoop Mountain Prep Classic Preview

After a number of the top Class A programs in New England made their season debut last weekend at the National Prep Showcase, many of the top B & C schools in the region open their schedule this weekend at the Hoop Mountain Prep Classic. 

Perennial powerhouses like St. Mark’s, Proctor Academy, Cushing Academy, Lawrence Academy, Wilbraham & Monson, Marianapolis Prep, and St. Andrew’s will lead a talented local contingent while other teams will be traveling from as far as California, Canada, and Florida.
