Border Country Sports Blog-January 24th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Welcome to another week everyone! Hard to believe how fast the winter sports season is flying by. Adirondack League teams are down to about four regular season games left and then the ADK championship tournament. On the boys side there is a big game on Friday night when Granville travels to Lake George. The Argyle at Whitehall game on Tuesday could also be a big one. Corinth and Hartford seem to be destined to meet in the title game on the girls side. It will be interesting to see if a team like Argyle or Warrensburg can upset the apple cart!
Here is the Monday Morning Hot List for this week!
-Maggie McKearin of Proctor just continues to put up incredible numbers. It doesn't matter if it is on the soccer pitchor the basketball court, McKearin is one of the premier local athletes. This week McKearin became the first Phantoms girls basketball player to score over 40 points in a game when she scored 42 against Bellows Falls. Against Poultney McKearin scored 40 points and eclipsed the 1,000 career point mark.
-Hartford's Gabbie McFarren continued to zero in on the 1,000 career point mark. McFarren scored 34 points in the Tanager's win over Granville.
-Speaking of McFarren and 3-pointers, Hartford knocked down an amazing 15 treys in the Granville win. Besides McFarren, McKenzie Johnson, Cailin Severance and Izzy French all knocked down shots from behind the arc.
-Granville guard Caleb Nelson continued his high scoring ways this week. In three games this week Nelson scored 68 points in three games. The junior who shares the backcourt with his twin brother Cody scored 24 against Fort Ann, 23 against Hartford and 21 against Whitehall.
-While we are on the subject of the Golden Horde, let's turn to wrestling. Granville's Brent Perry went 5-0 in the 189 pound weight class this weekend at the Dominick Kossmann Duals in Duanesburg. Perry is now 23-3 on the season.
-Salem-Cambridge also had a great meet at the Kossmann Duals. Salem-Cambridge went 5-0 against Duanesburg-Schoharie, Onteora, Granville, Bethlehem and Maple Hill. Henry Dill, Brayton Cary, Lucas Martindale, and Evan Day went unbeaten for Salem-Cambridge. Quinn Donaldson went 4-1.
-A player to keep an eye for the Whitehall Railroaders is freshman forward Lattrell Evans. Evans had 20 points Friday night against Fort Edward and 15 Saturday against Ticonderoga. Evans seems to be a player to watch in the future.
-Since the first time he stepped on the court for the Fair Haven boys varsity Sawyer Ramey has been one of the area's most prolific players. The Slaters have only managed to get in five games so far this year, but expect to see Ramey get rolling. Ramey scored 27 points this week in a win over Woodstock.
-And finally, Lake George's Cameron Orr continues to put up strong numbers. Orr had a 30 point performance this week against Hartford.
