Ridley’s boys basketball team made history Thursday night, which is saying something considering the success the Green Raiders have had on the hardwood over the years.
Senior Sean Bingnear came through on Senior Night as the Green Raiders downed Garnet Valley, 59-49, to post the best regular-season record in program history.
The Green Raiders finished 21-1 overall and 16-0 in the league. They’ll play the winner of Saturday night’s game between Strath Haven and Conestoga Monday night for the Central League title.
Bingnear made three big 3-point field goals and finished with 11 points. He hit a trey to keep things close in the first quarter and drilled two more triples in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Fellow senior Julian Wing led Ridley with a season-high 29 points.
Andrew Louden paced Garnet Valley with 15 points. Austin Laughlin and Brandon Starr chipped in with 13 points each.
