Riverhead High School’s Class of 2013 will host the first-ever John Mendreski Memorial student/teacher badminton tournament on Tuesday, March 1, from 3 to 6 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. Team participants will include one teacher from Riverhead High School or Riverhead Middle School. Entry fee is $100 for each team.
