The Farmingdale Rebels, now a GU16 team, have been competing in college showcases since last August and college coaches are now scouting many of the players on the team.
Recently, the team competed at the March Mania Tournament in Baltimore, Maryland. They competed against teams from New Jersey and Pennsylvania, winning two games and tying one. Unfortunately the team lost in the championship match but it marked the third time in the last four tournaments that the Rebels have made the finals. The Rebels have practiced outdoors all winter and the dedication and commitment they have displayed is now showing on the field.
The Rebels are now a premier team and play in the Presidents League against teams from Long Island and upstate New York.
