Girls Modified Basketball
Girls modified “A” team played their first combined Berlin/New Lebanon game against a well-organized Hoosick Falls “A” team on 12/9.

Overall, a strong effort that we hope to build on this Saturday at Mountain Madness. High scorer was Rebecca Madsen with 10 points. Riley Robertson added 4 points. Nikki Minkler had 1 bucket & Hailey Arnold contributed a bucket & 1.
Girls Modified Basketball

Boys Varsity Basketball
The Boys Varsity Basketball team traveled to Hoosick Falls 12/9 for their first game of the season. Nerves got the better of the team towards the end of the first quarter, which put them behind early on. Coming out of the half they rallied to win the 3rd quarter, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the early deficit. The team played solid defense, limited their fouls on a much larger team, and ran their press breaks flawlessly throughout the night. Leading the team was Malachi Ritter with 21 points on 7-16 shooting, followed by Shawn Pawlows with 10 points on 4 for 9 shooting. Our next game is at New Lebanon HS against Heatly on Wednesday at 6:00 PM. Come support the team if you are free!

Boys Varsity Basketball
The boys Varsity Basketball team defeated the Heatley Hornets 12/11 at New Lebanon bringing them to a 1-1 record this season. The team was led in points by Shawn Pawlows with 12 points, Roman Kane with 7 steals, and Malachi Ritter with 10 rebounds. While it was an inefficient scoring night, with only 42 points overall, they held the Hornets to just 5 points in the first half, and 29 overall. Their press and communication on defense were impressive factors last night, considering the difficult practice schedule they have been presented with this year.
