The "A" team faces Hunt Middle school at and Essex Middle school , this week. Both are home games. What a great start for the season! Go Cats!
The Shelburne Boys A team kicked off the season with a 2-1 first week. The inside game, led by Noah Allen, and an outstanding team effort was too much for Williston Central School in a 38-29 opening day victory. The same power was used against the Cats two days later in a 34-26 loss to Frederick Tuttle Middle School of South Burlington. The week ended with a stifling team defense that held Vergennes to 2 points in the 4th quarter of a 38-27 win. The cats will be on the road for three more games before the holiday break.
The Boys B-Team had a very strong finish to a 3 game week (1-2)that saw them drop the first two games by a combined 14 points, but coming back strong in the 3rd game to finish the week with a very nice 11 point victory over Vergennes. The 1st loss came against Williston Blue although the boys did lead that one at halftime but were unable to overcome a scorching full court press in the second half to lose by 9. The middle game came against a South Burlington squad that beat the B-Team last year by 30. This year we had to overcome almost a foot of height across the board and nearly were able to pull out a victory coming only 4 points short.
The Team is making huge strides in all areas of their game but especially in the ball control, and pass interception aspects of the game. We look forward to having all parents and students come out to our games to cheer us on in the weeks to come.
Thanks for all the continued support.
