Week 2

The middle school boys basketball team had a big weekend in Claremont, helping the NH teams defeat the VT teams to win the state championship. This is one of hopefully many to come! Yesterday the boys had a tough test against a pretty big and talented Plainfield team. Being undersized once again, the boys were able to not let the bigger team walk all over them. The first half started off with Plainfield being able to get to the basket at will. Sunapee's offense continued to find success with dribble penetration and movemnt without the ball. Although there were very few post touches, the post players continued to fight and work hard for position. The second half of the game the defensive intensity picked up and the boys were able to come out with a 48-42 victory. It is still early in the season, but the middle school boys continue to work hard, keeping in mind the goal for when they get to high school. THAT STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

Week 1

Week 1

 The middle school boys basketball team is off to a great start. There is alot of entusiasm, passion, and team chemistry that will lead them to a successful season. This week week they played a school from Indian River, and I must say, I was quite impressed. The final score was 55-20! The up-tempo pace of the game fell right into the strengths of all the boys. Their ability to move their feet, keep their hands wide, and communicate led them to many fast break opportunities. Although undersized, the boys won the battle of the paint, outscoring Indian river in that area. This is just the beginning of what could be a great season and a great future for these boys.  Check back in next week to see how the boys hold up in week 2!
