Given the quality of basketball the senior boys Red Hawks have played over the last month the team is feeling optimistic about their chances for a deep run in the upcoming playoffs in February. The boys have channelled their frustration with game cancellations due to inclement weather onto the court with tenacious defence and a high octane offence.
A solid performance in Kawartha League Interlock play beating Campbellford 49-42 and losing a tight game to Port Hope.
Convincing victories over LCVI Gravenhurst and the HHSS alumni team.
A wonderful performance at a tournament in Port Hope on Fri. Jan. 13. The boys defeated Quinte Christian 55-39 led by team captain McKay Coneybeare.
(15 points eight assists) and Campellford 56-42 led by sharp shooter Sam Longo.
(21 points with six three pointers). All 14 team members played inspired ball despite losing in the final to Clarke High School 55-40. No excuses but we played the final with 10 minutes rest against a fresh team.
We have four more league games before the exam break and then the boys head to a tune-up tournament in Pembroke Feb. 3 and 4. Our league play finishes on Feb. 9 and playoffs begin on Feb. 13. Keep up the great effort McKay Kyle Sam Sage Collin Brandon Braden Cam Jordan Jonas Rylan Alec Liam Zak and Alex!
