RYE, N.Y. -- Rye will host two days of back-to-back athletic games in its first ever "G Day" weekend event April 5 and 6. Rye High School teams will take on teams from Harrison, Port Chester, Somers, Lakeland and Greenwich.
The district is hoping that the event will become an annual tradition that brings the community together to support the Rye High School Garnets. In addition to the games, there will be sports fundraising at the high school, half-time activities, food, live music and Garnet spirit wear sales.
The games will kick off Friday, April 5 at 4:15 p.m. when the boys varsity tennis team takes on Harrison at the Rye Recreation Center and the junior varsity baseball team plays Harrison at Disbrow Park.
The following is the schedule of events for Saturday, April 6:
8 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Co-ed crew at Greenwich Harbor's Grass Island Park
