MS Girls Basketball took THIRD place in Land of Fires Tournament 2019!
- 2/26/19 RHS 19 Paul Cuffy 18
In the opening game, the girls played an exciting game to maintain the lead and beat Paul Cuffy with no time left on the clock. The defensive pressure and the well executed offense made this a total team victory. It was an exciting game, and allowed us to continue to play on Thursday. Which was one of our original team goals in the beginning of the season. Franny McCaughey, Katie Kerachsky, Skye Connell, and Tina Greim, all contributed 4 points each, and Sydney Boss and Lexi Cote finished out the scoring.
- 2/26/19 RHS 14 and BVP 38
The team started strong and kept BVP within reach. However, as the games pace picked up, our players just ran out of energy. They played hard, but couldn’t maintain the fast pace transition game to stop them. Even switching to man-to-man, didn’t give us the boost we needed to win. The highlight of the game was when the 6th grade squad went in to play at the end. They played hard and showed us what to expect next season! The key scorers were Skye Connell and Katie Kerachsky each with 4 points, Lexi Cote with 3 points and the other scorers were: Franny McCaughey and Tina Greim.
- 2/27/19 RHS 20 and Pennfield 16
The girls started on a slow, non-energetic note in the first half and were down (5-10) at halftime. However, with the exciting shooting of Kristina Greim, Skye O’Connell and Franny McCaughey each contributing 6 points and the leadership of Katie Kerachsky, the team’s energy doubled! During the press and the defensive pressure of Franny McCaughey, Hannah Boss and Sydney Boss, Pennfield never had a chance. The real energy came from the 6th grade players who were amazing on the bench. They consistently cheered and pumped everyone up! This was a true total team victory!
Girl’s Middle School – Seventh game of the season!
The whole team did a great job being strong and not becoming frustrated. There was a definite size difference between the two teams, but we went out and played tough and strong. Tina Greim played a wonderful game offensively. Skye Connell had her best game of the season both offensively and defensively. The eighth graders led us the team, but the sixth graders showed their strength by jumping into the game and playing tough. The team was very proud of how they played this game as they should be. Great work!
Girl’s Middle School – Fifth game of the season!
Skye O’Connell had six points! She really has been a strong player under the hoop. Our 8th graders did a great job leading the younger players who had significant playing time this game. Although Gordon was physically stronger we played with great strength and perseverance. For those that were afraid due to size they stepped up and played great defense!
Solid Effort Falls Just Short
- RHS 14 and BCA 15
- Sydney Boss – 2 pts. Lexi Cote – 2 pts. Katie Kerchasky – 2 pts. Tina Greim – 6 pts.
Once again Lexi Cote dominated on defense, along with Sydney Boss. Tina Griem showed her focus on the line after a technical foul against Barrington. August Moran, Izzy Rishworth, Katie O’Neil and Abbey Grandin all showed great improvement on defense. This game was extremely physical, but we were tough – even with the close loss. I am very proud of these girls!
Next game is a Valenines day date with Gordon!
The third game of the season is a victory!
Lexi Cote & Skye Connell were dominate under the basket both offensively and defensively. Franny McCaughey, Katie Kerchasky and Sydney Boss did an amazing job helping led the team. Our 7th & 8th graders blended nicely together while running our offensive plays. Our 6th graders all had an impact on today’s win with playing time, and cheering! This is our first win of the season!!
Tomorrow we will be playing away at Barrington Christian Academy!
Girl’s Middle School – Second game of the season!

Girl’s Middle School – Opening game of the season!
Franny McCaughley, Katie, and Hannah Boss were aggressive on the defensive end and helped run the offense.

Since it was our first game, the sixth graders were introduced to a truly fast paced game. We did see solid rebounding from CeCe Tamburini and Jillian Pogachar.
