Downsville 43, Andes 31 (Dec. 10)
Point guard Mariah Ruff scored 14 points for the host Mountaineers and Karli Tait added nine rebounds and four steals when Andes played host to the Downsville Eagles last Wednesday.
“I thought we did OK early,” said Head Coach Jeff Rhone. “I thought we defended them fairly well in the first half and then in the course of the game we couldn’t stay with them. They were pretty athletic and we just didn’t defend well at all in the second half and especially in the third quarter. And they totally out-rebounded us.”
The Eagles outscored the Mountaineers 18-9 in the first half, including a 14-3 run in the second quarter.

More than holiday 200 wreaths were laid at the headstones of veterans in three Andes cemeteries last weekend as an Andes committee, led by Carol Tubbs, participated in a observance that mirrors a much larger movement.
Tubbs, as well as a number of Andes residents and a community service group from Andes Central School, laid the wreaths by the headstones Saturday morning to honor veterans in a ritual that happens nationwide on a much larger scale.

Andes 48, Stamford 54
Defense was the main problem for the Andes girls when they traveled to Stamford to face the Indians last Tuesday. The Mountaineers fell 54-48 to Stamford in the Delaware League match-up.
“Offensively, I was very pleased with how we played,” said Head Coach Jeff Rhone. “I thought we did a nice job of breaking when we had opportunities and we did get some easy baskets in the transition; however, defensively we didn’t play well at all.”

Andes basketball preview: Bernhardt returns to coach boys with new outlook on the game

By Julia Green
For the Andes boys’ varsity basketball team, it’s a little less “out with the old, in with the new” and more “in with the old with a new point of view.”
Head Coach John Bernhardt is returning to the reins after a hiatus from the coaching ranks while last year’s coach, Adam VanValkenburg, works on completing work on his master’s degree.
“No one else expressed an interest, so I said, ‘What the heck,’” Bernhardt said. “I love basketball, love coaching basketball – it’s a lot of fun, but I must admit it’s a little more taxing on the body as I get older.”
