Riverdale's coach, Andrew Fitzgerald, was offered a coaching spot but had to decline because of a scheduling conflict.
The Mayor's Cup All-Star games will be played on Nov. 15-16 at Poly Prep. The Independent Schools' girls and boys teams will play teams fielded by the Catholic High School Athletic Association on Nov 16. The winners will play teams from the Public Schools Athletic League the next day. The Public Schools teams won the event last year and received a bye into the final.
