RCS teams strong on hoop experience


By John Bernhardt
Experience is a great teacher. The Roxbury girls’ and boys’ basketball teams bring the advantage of previous hardwood lessons learned, rosters packed with players who have been there before, players who can use the hard knocks of earlier campaigns to their advantage in the upcoming basketball crusade. The return of large portions of the rosters on both teams create positive energy and elevated expectations at the onset of another local winter sports’ season.

MCS boys hoop squad has experience to contend


By John Bernhardt
The past two seasons brought a resurgence of boys’ basketball prowess to the court at Margaretville Central School. The Blue Devils won the Delaware League championship in 2013 and were in the thick of the title chase last winter. Short in numbers, but long in experience, Margaretville coach Jeremey Marks is hoping his squad can contend again this winter.
With only one junior on the roster, the Blue Devils have only eight players. But, six of the eight Blue Devils are seniors, allowing Marks ample experience to make up for what he lacks in depth.

Blue Devil girls have high hopes for hoop season


By John Bernhardt
There are few places that Kyle Holden would rather be than on a basketball court. The Margaretville girls’ varsity coach relishes the time he gets to teach basketball every season. But, this winter Holden’s Blue Devils have elevated his enjoyment of teaching the game to new levels.
“It’s just a pleasure coaching these girls,” Holden said when talking about his team. “I really like this group. It’s tough to describe how much fun it’s been working with these kids.”
