The Kingswood Oxford campus is alive with excitement about this weekend’s 50th annual Paul W. “Frosty” Francis Kingswood Invitational Tournament (KIT) – three days of high school basketball and great traditions.
Founded by the late Frosty Francis, a longtime KO basketball coach, teacher, and administrator, the tournament will be held at KO from Dec. 14-16. Independent schools from throughout the Northeast will send boys’ and girls’ teams to compete in the prestigious event, which is sponsored by the KO Parent Association and supported by the Athletic Department.
“The KIT represents what is best about high school athletics,” said KO Head of School Dennis Bisgaard. “The enthusiasm of players and spectators, sportsmanship and skillful play make the K.I.T. a true celebration of student involvement in athletics and the community. We honor friendships and camaraderie born out of competition.”
The schools participating this year in the KIT are Brewster Academy, Canterbury, Cheshire Academy, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Ethel Walker, Governor’s Academy, Hamden Hall, Hebron Academy, Hopkins, Nobles and Greenough, Rye Country Day, St. Luke’s, and Watkinson.
The first game will be on Friday, Dec. 14, at 2:30pm (Hopkins versus St. Luke’s). The KO Girls will play Ethel Walker on Dec. 14 at 7pm, and the KO Boys will play Canterbury that night at 8:30pm. Click here for the complete schedule.
