MCS boys hoops look to defend title


By John Bernhardt
Winning the Delaware League championship last winter was a great feeling for the Margaretville boys’ basketball team. Margaretville lost their three “Bigs” from that championship team, but the shorter, quicker, faster 2013 version of Blue Devils is determined to keep that championship feeling alive this winter.

Margaretville boys roll; slow start for RCS

Margaretville’s boys’ basketball team made a statement in Jefferson Monday night. The Blue Devils opened their season by scoring 27 points in the first period when they raced to a 27-3 lead and then coasted to a 59-35 win over the JayHawks.
The Blue Devils showcased a sizzling long-range shooting game, nailing eight three-point goals with junior point guard Cooper Reither and shooting guard Kyle Short nailing four long-range bombs each. Reither and Short teamed to score 21 of the Blue Devil’s 27 points in the devastating opening frame.

Teamwork key to success for Blue Devils girls' team

Preseason practice has drawn to a close and Margaretville girls’ basketball coach Kyle Holden knows his team is a work in progress. Holden understands his Blue Devil roster has the experience, quickness, and depth to compete if they can learn to trust each other and care more about team then individual success.
Five seniors anchor the roster. Annette Hogan is back for her fourth season on the varsity. After the Blue Devils got out of the gate slowly last season, winning only one of their first five games, Hogan took over duties as the point guard.

RCS coach hopes bigger is better for basketball team

Roxbury boys’ coach Tom Faraci will put one of the bigger squads in the Delaware League on the basketball court this winter. Faraci hopes added inches of height and wingspan around the basket provide his young squad with an offensive and defensive boost. And, Faraci knows that to compete in a tough Delaware League, his team will need to have competitive hearts as big as their frames to aggressively pursue every ball off the glass and play tough defense.

After losing the nucleus of last winter’s basketball team to graduation, Roxbury girls’ basketball coach Lisa Faraci is busy reloading her roster for the upcoming campaign. Only three Rocket players return, leaving Faraci busy teaching Rocket offensive and defensive systems to a squad filled with new faces.
For Faraci the preseason has been special.
“We’re working hard to improve each and every day,” noted the Roxbury coach. These kids are so eager and working so hard. They are just eating basketball up right now.”

Dream season ends for Blue Devils

The soccer gods have spoken, and the curse of the Blue Devils’ New York State Tournament qualifier lives on. Nine times Margaretville has earned Section IV, Class D, boys’ soccer championships, and try as they might, the Blue Devils have never been able to move past the state qualifier to the Final Four. Margaretville’s hopes of snapping the dreaded curse went by the wayside Saturday at Liverpool High School when the Blue Devils dropped a hard fought, 1-0, decision to Section III champion. Watertown Immaculate Heart Catholic High School.

Devils rally to win boy's sectional title

For the Margaretville boys’ basketball team to roll this winter, junior Matt VanValkenburg will need to become a presence around the basket. VanValkenburg demonstrated the positioning and jockeying of an inside hoops star, with all the banging and bumping that it entails, in front of the nets down the stretch in Saturday’s Section IV, Class D soccer championship game against Charlotte Valley/Davenport in Oneonta.
