RCS girls continue their winning streak

in

By John Bernhardt
Familiar patterns are taking hold for the Roxbury girls’ basketball team. The Rockets, 10-1, and ranked number 12 in the New York State Class D rankings, are noted for either bursting from the gates to overrun their opponents or showcase steely fourth-quarter nerves to secure control of close contests down the stretch. Both tendencies were on display last week when the Rockets logged victories over Windham and Downs­ville.

After Margaretville hit the first shot of the fourth quarter last week Tuesday, the Blue Devils boys’ basketball team led defending Section IV champion Davenport 44-40 and was positioned to deliver one of the biggest upsets of the season in the Delaware League. That’s when Margaretville, at home, went cold and the experience of two seasoned Wildcat seniors would come into play.

Powerful RCS boys' offense topples Windham

in

By John Bernhardt
The big story was another 30 plus point effort by Roxbury’s Matt Faraci. Faraci, the area’s leading scorer, uses a multiple-pronged offensive attack that includes hard penetrating moves to the basket, a “spot on” shooting touch from the perimeter and solid free throw shooting racked up 35 points as Roxbury bested Windham, 59-48.

MCS girls best Andes but fall to the top-ranked Davenport

in

By John Bernhardt
It’s a regular rite of winter. As sure as cold mountain winter air in the Catskills, year after year you can count on Davenport’s legendary girls’ basketball coach Ray Preston to have his team perched at the top of the Delaware League’s Upper Division standings. It was way back in the 2001-2002 basketball season when Preston and his Wildcats wrested the Upper Division title from Margaret­ville, and the Wildcats have finished on top ever since.
On top again
