Season Highlight(s): Winning our first round sectional game against Rhinebeck, Coach Karen Furman said.
In that Class C contest, which was played on March 1 in Grahamsville, Krom and Moore each netted 14 points to lead the Lady Bears to a 51-46 victory.
Furman noted that another highlight was how the team played against Division V foe Tuxedo in a February contest.
We played Tuxedo here and we played very well, she said. We went into halftime with a lead and the girls were competing well.
Season Lowlight: Furman noted that the team really didnt have a lowlight.
Our season was very positive, she commented. Towards the middle of the season our fast break began to click and the team really hit its stride.
Other: The Lady Bears will lose two players Krom and Jessica Lake to graduation.
We have a young team, Furman said. But we have a lot of experience coming back. For a lot of the girls who will be seniors, it will be their third season on the varsity team.
