I’m headed home today…sort of.
Me and my rain pants will be up at Carmel High School this afternoon to see New Rochelle take on Carmel, the last Section 1 team to beat the Huguenots. We’ll also have reporters at Croton-Lourdes and Bronxville-Tuckahoe, and I expect to have score updates from Iona Prep-Farrell and Poughkeepsie-Eastchester among others.
For live scores throughout the day, follow me on Twitter at Twitter.com/LoHudInsider. I added about 45 followers last night alone, so hopefully YOU will be No. 46. Better hurry…
And, for those of you who aren’t on Twitter or refuse to join, you can catch the instant updates from my Twitter feed at the right hand side of this page.
