stmarysRochester 43 St. Mary's 21

The Lady Bisons traveled to Rochester School for the Deaf yesterday for their second game of the season. Though they played well together, they couldn’t seem to keep up with the Lady Wildcats. It was an aggressive game on both sides which led to some foul trouble and injuries late in the game. The girls pulled through in the end but couldn’t make it a win.

Kioney Alvira-Juardo lead the team earning a double-double with 17 points and 16 rebounds. Kearah Kelly also made her first shot of the season adding two points to our total. After a nice break where we will try to regroup and work on some weak points we will be ready to take on Central Baptist again. (Contributed by Head Coach Wendy Chuba)

rhode-islandBlackstone Valley Prep 19 Rhode Island 13

Our Lady Roosters finally played our first game of the 2018 calendar year in a home game against Blackstone Valley Prep. After a lot of snow and missed practice days, this would be a good way for our team to get back into basketball form. Both teams started out the game rusty and the game remained scoreless until BVP finally scored the first points of the game more than six minutes into the game.

BVP would grab a 10-4 halftime lead but our Lady Roosters would not give up. They were able to come back and make the game exciting as the game score was at one point BVP leading 15-13, but our team ran out of gas and couldn't make any of our shots and BVP made two more baskets near the end of the game to win 19-13.

new-mexicoCimarron 49 New Mexico 12

Our first game of 2018 was a long trip to Cimarron. The day before, we had a very productive practice where players were very aggressive which made both coaches very eager for the game the next day. Unfortunately, we seemed to have left our competitive fire at home. We finished the first half scoring only two points to Cimarron’s 21. We finally came out with better passion with a nine-point quarter, but Cimarron continued their hot shooting performance with a 20-point quarter. We finished the game with a 12-point performance. As coaches, we were very disappointed in the team’s effort, however, this is a learning experience that the players will not want to repeat again. Our next game will be on January 17th with Vaughn on our home court. (Contributed by Head Coach Roderick Stickley)

The Lady Bison finally had their first game of the season against Central Baptist. After several cancelations, these girls were a little nervous but ready to see what they could do. They came out strong in the first quarter and kept it close throughout the first half but after dealing with strong pressure from the other team they quickly fell behind.

Kioney Alvira-Juardo led the team both as the point guard and as our leading scorer with a total of 24 points. Elise Watson was a major help both offensively and defensively and Emma Foster came out strong as an aggressive but controlled defender. Though the score says they lost, they’ve really learned to play as a team and no one left the court as discouraged as they could have. (Contributed by Head Coach Wendy Chuba)

This past weekend, the basketball teams went to Kentucky School for the Deaf and they had a BLAST even though it was FREEZING. At one point, it was 0 degrees! Both basketball teams were not used to playing more than one games so they were tired. Thankfully, they had one day of rest yesterday because they needed it from playing hard and lack of sleep. We played against KSD and GSD more than once because Illinois School for the Deaf were unable to come due to their weather conditions.

After a long layover from our winter break and snowstorm, both teams looked rusty playing basketball but in the second half they played better. We only had only three practices in the last three weeks. We did not look good to go but we had to do what we were dealt with.

MPS handed ASD' first loss of the season. We got off to a good start but late in the first half, we didn't score much. We led 24-14 at the half and controlled the second half. Our largest lead was 18 points and ASD bounced back to make it a close game.

Junior Kacey Monahan led the team scoring with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and five blocks. 8th grader Kyle Florio put his best game of the season with 19 points, four rebounds, and three assists. Florio was 3 of 4 in the trey area. Senior Dylan Christoffels didn't have his best shooting day but he contributed in a different role by grabbing 10 rebounds, dishing nine assists, and two steals.

Hopefully, it is a lesson learned for our boys before we travel to MSSD and play Fremont on Thursday night at 7 p.m. (Contributed by Head Coach Andy Donatich)
