SEA ISLE CITY - Participants in the first Bill Liddell Men’s Basketball Tournament braved the heat and a bevy of talented competitors at the JFK Boulevard courts Aug. 14. 

According to a city release, in the end, “Liddell’s Legions” beat “The Lakeys,” in a close championship game.

During an awards presentation immediately after the one-day tournament’s final game, The Lakey’s received a $100 gift certificate, courtesy of Mike’s Seafood Market and Restaurant. A moment later, Sea Isle City Councilman and First Bank of Sea Isle City Board Member Jack Gibson presented Liddell’s Legion with $500 cash, courtesy of First Bank.
