Family School Records
As Many Wins as Losses

By Jeanne Sager
March 16, 2004 – Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of wrap-up stories about how county basketball teams fared this past season. Please see more wrap-ups in future issues of the Democrat.


Overall Record: 11-10

League Record: 5-5 OCIAA Division VI

Top Scorers: Lee Lilly led the Falcons this season with some outstanding play. The senior averaged 12 points per game in The Family School’s race to sectionals. He was aided by sophomore Tom Gould, who averaged 10.5 points per game.

Season Highlight: In a game at Fallsburg mid-way through the season, the Falcons returned from an 18-point deficit to win the game by two points.

Season Lowlight: The team lost five of its players during the season. They were dismissed from the squad for violating school rules.

Other comments: Coach Pat Simmons was proud of his team, which made it all the way to sectional play this year. In the Section IX Class D semifinals, the Falcons lost to Livingston Manor.
“They never quit,” he said. “They always gave 100 percent.
“Even when we lost to guys, I still got 100 percent with good attitudes,” Simmons continued. “That’s all you can ask for.”
