BOYS’ VARSITY VS. RUDOLF STEINER
The boys’ varsity basketball team played Rudolf Steiner on Monday at Bard College at Simon’s Rock. The game was exciting and very close throughout all four quarters. The Rudolf Steiner team lead the game from the start through the end of the third quarter. During the fourth period, WMS scored the last 12 points to take the lead and win the game. The team moved the ball well and supported each other well both on and off the court. Although we took several shots from the outside, we moved the ball well to find the open player for the shot. Overall it was a terrific game and the team worked well together and showed good sportsmanship. Final score: WMS 25, Rudolf Seiner 18. See photos from this game on Flickr.
GIRLS’ VARSITY VS. RUDOLF STEINER
The girls’ varsity basketball team played their second game of the season against Rudolf Steiner School. Unfortunately Steiner only had six players and were a young team which lead to an imbalanced game. Our players quickly realized they were dominating, and they made adjustments and took the opportunity to focus on individual and team skills. Both teams had a healthy attitude and were incredibly gracious showing terrific sportsmanship. The game gave girls newer to basketball a boost in confidence and it was wonderful to have everyone involved, relaxed and have a ton of fun playing. See photos from this game on Flickr.
JUNIOR VARSITY VS. RUDOLF STEINER
The jv basketball team had a positive game against a well matched Rudolf Steiner team. All our players are new to the game this season and were all eager to play coming off winter break. Right from the tip-off, our Polar Bears came out aggressively by working hard both defensively and offensively. Every quarter we were strong and focused at both baskets especially our rebounds. Offensively our point guards are growing into their role as leaders through ball movement and creating scoring opportunities. Our offense definitely out shot their opponents 2-1, but we had a hard time finishing our baskets. Defensively, we are progressing and have a lot to learn such as posting up and improving on our man to man coverage. Our post players worked hard to get open as well as rebound and score. Our wing players equally moved the ball to create scoring opportunities. Everyone contributed to this courageous effort and left the court feeling accomplished with their heads high and learning more about the game of basketball. Final score: WMS 6, Rudolf Steiner 12.
