Athletic News:

The JV Boys Hoop-Team picked up two wins this past weekend against Poland and Sauquoit.  The boys handily beat Poland Friday night 54-10, with Drew Baker & Gavin Snyder scoring 11 & 10 respectively.  

However the boys found themselves in a very different situation on Saturday, in a “nail-biter” against Sauquoit.  This young JV team found themselves down 3 pts with three minutes to go in the game, but with grit & determination, ground out a 33-29 win.  Freshman Bryce Wright scored 9 of his 13 pts in the fourth quarter, followed by clutch scoring from Drew Baker with 8 points, & Teddy Freeth with 6.  The weekend’s wins find the JV team with a 2-1 record.

The Varsity team moved to 3-0 with two wins last weekend as well, with the boys besting the Tornadoes of Poland with a score of 81-18.  A night of highlights too numerous to recount, were led in scoring by Thomas Simpson with 15, Sami Cigeroglu with 14, & Reese Snyder with 10.  

But just like the JV Boys, the Sauquoit varsity proved to be a greater test for the ballers as well.  After a very slow first-quarter, the Varsity found their footing & secured the victory in the Valley with a 61-41 win.  Our scoring was led by future “RPI attendee” Zach LaFrance with 18, Tom Simpson with 16, & Sami, “does anyone have a hair-tie” Cigeroglu, with 10.

The JV & Varsity Boys Hoopsters will follow up last weekend’s game with three homers this week, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday.  Come on out and join the “Green-Mile” and see what the fuss is all about.

Over the weekend the JV girls basketball team defeated Waterville 42-6. Leading Hamilton was Rihana Dye with 15 points followed by Katelyn Simpson with 9 points. The win improves their record to 2-0.

The varsity girls picked up a win at Sauquoit Saturday afternoon 47-29.  Reagan Hope led all scorers with 17 points, Kyleigh Pearson made her much anticipated return adding 9 points and 8 rebounds.  Lindsey Speerhad a personal best 12 steals that led to 7 assists.  The girls are back in action tonight, opening up league play home against New York Mills.
