Ridgefield Public Schools reports that twenty-two teams consisting of Ridgefield High School students, teachers, and police officers competed in the Tiger Toss cornhole tournament with all proceeds donated to the CT Special Olympics.
Students in Jesse Peterkin's Sports Marketing class planned, promoted, and ran the tournament, learning about all the aspects of event management in the process.
Peterkin writes, "It was an awesome finish won by sophomores Rohan Connelly and Caleb Miller who narrowly defeated second-place winners, seniors Tim Grove and Lucas Williams. Officer Kate Williams and Officer Mark Giglio had a nice showing finishing in third- place. The winners received gift cards donated by many local businesses including Genoa Deli, Prospector Theater, Prime Burger, Sobol, Bobos, and The Cake Box."
