In wake of the latest breaking news that Rockland schools may go back to playing in Section 9, please vote in our new poll question to the right.
Here are some other headlines from tonight:
BREAKING: Horace Greeley senior Jackie Brett (pictured right) scored her 1,000th career point today against Rye. Brett scored 20 points in the Quakers’ 51-46 win over the Garnets.
Sleepy Hollow plays Nyack a little too close for comfort, extending its win streak to 11 games with a thrilling 62-59 overtime win. Our colleague Brian Heyman was there covering all the action, so his game story should be quite the read.
Solomon Schechter had its six-game winning streak snapped today, as Port Chester wins 51-42 for just its second win of the year (second in-a-row, though).
Hamilton senior Maia Hood continued to close in on her 1,000th career rebound after grabbing 17 in a 59-26 win over Blind Brook. After scoring her 1,000th career point last year, Hood would be just one of a handful of players to join the 1,000-1,000 club should she reach the milestone by season’s end.
