The 12th Larry McIntire IAABO Board 130 Classic will be played Feb. 19-20 at Marblehead High School.
The tournament, which is named for the former Big East referee and longtime assigner for several high school leagues and the MIAA North sectional tournament, returns to Marblehead for the second year, after having been played at North Andover, St. John’s Prep, Central Catholic and Beverly.
The Masconomet girls return to the tournament this year and their roster includes two of McIntire’s granddaughters, Taylor and Riley Bovardi. The Bishop Fenwick girls and Marblehead boys will be looking to defend the tournament championships they won in 2022. New to the tournament this year are the North Andover girls and Bedford boys.
Two boys players and two girls players will receive a $1,000 scholarship presented by IAABO Board 130 and the McIntire Family.
Since its inception in 2011, the tournament has raised more than $40,000 for scholarships and Officials vs. Cancer, an American Cancer Society initiative that started in 2008 and has raised more than $2.5 million.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Only MIAA passes will be accepted.
