New Ro falls to Pride

By MIKE SMITH New Rochelle’s girls may have played their best basketball down the stretch this year, but against a dominant Ossining team in the Class AA quarterfinals, the size–and talent–of the Section I favorites proved too much to overcome. On Feb. 21, the Pride ended the Huguenots’ season, beating New Rochelle 60-48 to move […]

Garnets ready for Magnus

By MIKE SMITH Rye might not have seemed its old defensive-minded self in the early goings of a Feb. 19 quarterfinal game against Sleepy Hollow, but the Garnets were able to right the ship after some early miscues, erasing a double-digit deficit to outclass the Horsemen the rest of the way, winning 62-37 to punch […]

Huskies reach semis

By MIKE SMITH Harrison may be known as a football town but, as the last few weeks have shown, Huskies supporters will always turn out to cheer on a winner. On Feb. 19, in front of a packed home gym, Harrison’s basketball team clawed its way to the biggest win in the program’s history with […]

Column: One for the old guys

If there is anything piling up faster than the snow outside, it’s the not-so-subtle reminders that I’m getting old. Now, I’m not talking about the fact that my back is acting up after I spent the past two days shoveling my driveway, or the fact snow days are now a nuisance rather than a cause […]

Cruz stays perfect

By Mike Smith Bryant “Pee Wee” Cruz might not have been flawless on Feb. 12, but he was sharp enough, fast enough, and—most importantly—tough enough to come away with a unanimous decision against Joshua Reyes to improve to 9-0 on his young career. Fighting in front of a rabid home crowd at the last fight […]
