Giorgi League Christens New Noel Field Court

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com Sports
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Berkshire County's newest sports venue opened with a couple of close games on Monday night as the John Giorgi Summer Basketball League christened the new courts at Noel Field.
 
IBerkshires.com edged Fortitude Strength and Conditioning, 49-41, in the first game, and Rivers Lawn Care/Timeless Training got past Swish, 56-50, in the nightcap.
 
The first games on the newly resurfaced outdoor courts were to be played on Sunday, but rain forced that night's action inside the North Adams Armory.
 
League organizer Al Giorgi this spring posted a schedule that tentatively called for the league to open on June 16, though he said at the time he was not sure whether the courts would be ready.
