New York Mills stops Charlotte Valley's title hopes

in

By John Bernhardt
Basketball fans all over Delaware County are hoping Saturday’s New York State Boys’ basketball regionals in Syracuse won’t be the last time they see Davenport Coach Lee Fisher on the sidelines. The affable Fischer and his Wildcats faced a basketball mountain in New York Mills that even the crafty Fischer couldn’t climb as the Section IV champions fell 55-38 in the state quarterfinals.
In basketball terms, this was a mismatch. With a front line that stood 6-foot-3, 6-foot-4, and 6-foot-5, New York Mills was simply too tall, too long, too fast, and got too many easy baskets for a much smaller Wildcat squad to compete.

For parts of six different decades, he has patrolled the sidelines at Davenport boys’ basketball games. The Wildcats’ Lee Fisher is a local coaching legend. This week, Davenport added to their coach’s impressive championship ledger by downing South Kortright, 46-37, in a Section IV, Class D semifinal Thursday night, then giving Fischer his ninth Section IV Crown with a 39-30 win over Southern Cayuga on Saturday.

Jordan Beers makes Franklin girls’ basketball coach Mike Dutcher’s job on the sidelines look easy. The senior all-purpose high school hoops star is a one-person basketball demolition squad. In the most anticipated high school basketball game of the season, Beers had her complete battery of talents on display before a capacity crowd at SUNY Oneonta’s Dewar Arena, as undefeated Franklin leveled previously undefeated South Kortright, 39-30, in last Wednesday’s Section IV, Class D, semifinal.
