Berlin/New Lebanon Girls  Modified Basketball

Girls Modified Basketball played the modified Stillwater team on Saturday morning.  From the beginning, we struggled to find our rhythm. Offensive rebounding was lacking and baskets were hard to come by.  Overall, we played a good defensive game, but anytime we faltered, Stillwater pounced.  We lost but played hard from beginning to end.  High scorer was Hailey Armold with 2 buckets.  Lilly Gardell, Rebecca Madsen and Anna Hart each sunk 1 and Rilynn Jones hit a foul shot. We face Tamarac’s A and B teams on Tuesday at New Lebanon.

Berlin/New Lebanon Girls Varsity Basketball

It has been a busy week for the Berlin New Lebanon ladies. The BNL team is really starting to find some success as they continue to work together. On Monday 1/6 they faced Loudonville Christian in a tough battle that saw strong games from Nora Colin, who scored 4 points and did an outstanding job crashing the boards for rebounds. Arianna Hendricks added 4 points while increasing her stats in rebounds and assists. After a late start joining the team following a great Cross Country season, Arianna has become a great addition to the team both offensively and defensively. Even though we beat them at home during Mountaineer Madness, we dropped to them at their house. On 1/8 Berlin New Lebanon ladies hosted the Saratoga Catholic Saints in a tough battle that went back and forth finally ending in a Saints win. Nora Colin continues to add points to the scoreboard dropping in 5 points and Arianna Hendricks added a bucket of her own. Both girls had numerous steals, rebounds, and assists to keep it a close game. Kianna Flavin continues to grow as a defensive player shutting down shooting opportunities and forcing the other team to turn over the ball. Tonight the BNL ladies travel to Stillwater.
