Border Country Sports Blog-January 17th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Well, back to the Monday Morning Hot list this week, my look at who was "Hot" this week in local high school sports. I am sorry I missed last week. Covid-19 finally reared its ugly head in our household last week and turned our lives a little upside down. So far I have avoided it, but my son had a mild case and my wife a pretty hard case.
Thankfully things are getting back to normal and I am getting my schedule back on track. Now that the holidays are over the season is back in full swing and there are plenty of great performances to choose from.
Here is this week's Monday Morning Hot List:
-I begin this week with a coaching milestone. Saturday Fair Haven girls basketball coach Kyle Wilson recorded career win 200 as the Slaters defeated Brattleboro. The great thing about it is Coach Wilson has recorded all of his wins with his father Jay Wilson by his side as an assistant coach.
-The Corinth girls basketball team remained unbeaten on the season with a win on the road against Hartford. Maddie DeLisle poured in 34 points for the Tomahawks. Our POTW for this week, Emily Dingmon contributed a triple-double with 14 points, 13 assists and 16 rebounds as Corinth handed the Tanagers their first league loss.
-Speaking of our POTW winners for this week, North Warren junior guard Sean Evans had quite a week. In a big road win over Granville Evan had 27 points and used his length and speed to disrupt the Golen Horde offense. Evans added a 19 point, seven steal, five rebound performance against Hartford.
-After a slow start to the season the Poultney girls basketball team is heating up. The Blue Devils started 0-4, but his week picked up back to back road wins against Mill River and Green Mountain.
-Hartford's Ray Harrington had yet another huge game this week. Harrington netted 33 points as the Tanagers got back into the win column by taking down Corinth.
-Julius Moffit of Lake George showed this week that Cameron Orr is not the only Warrior who can put up large point totals. That is bad news for the rest of the ADK and Class C. Moffit had a 33 point effort in a win over Salem. He also had a 21 point night in a win over Argyle.
-Fair Haven's Sawyer Ramey scored 12 of his team's 19 points in the fourth quarter as the Slaters pulled away from Windsor for a win. Ramey ended the game with 24 points.
-West Rutland's Peyton Guay continues to lead the Golden Horde with her high scoring. Guay had 31 points in a win over Poultney and came back with a 23 point game against MSJ.
-Proctor's Maggie McKearin has been putting up lofty numbers all season, and that didn't change this week. McKearin netted 28 points in the Phantom's victory over Long Trail. Proctor finished with 56 so McKearin accounted for exactly half of her team's offense.
-The Proctor Phantoms boys basketball team returned to action for the first time since December 29th this week and cruised past Sharon. Levi Petit had 26 points to lead the Phantoms.
-It has been a difficult season for the Fort Ann girls basketball team as the go through a rebuilding process. Angel Aratare however is having a nice season and has been a bright spot for coach Katie White. In a loss this week to Granville, Aratare scored 21 of the Cardinal's 27 points.
That's this week's Monday Morning Hot List. My look at who was hot this week in local high school sports.
