Last night, the Hand gym was rockin' as lady hoopsters of all ages came out in support of the varsity squad. The Tigers pulled away late, notching an exciting 51-38 win over Branford and improving to 11-1 on the season. Gege Catalano (the Sports Person of the Week in the most recent edition of "The Source": http://bit.ly/1us1gsM) and Gabby Martin each scored 14 and showed our young players how to hold a lead and put an opponent away by hitting from the charity stripe. It was all smiles afterwards, as is evident in this great photo!
On another note, if you are looking for another chance to chant and cheer, circle Friday February 13th on the calendar as the varsity goes on the road to take on Mercy (1740 Randolph Road, Middletown, CT 06457). This is a big rivalry with big post-season implications and I know Coach Tredwell and all of the players would love our support!
The 5B Black team, coached by Kristen Waterman, went 3-1 over the weekend in the Springfield Hoophall Classic tournament.

They lost to Beverly (MA), but had the opportunity to play on the Hall of Fame center court! Congratulations to all the boys and coaches!!!
