Boys’ Varsity vs Rudolf Steiner
Our boys’ varsity basketball team played a strong game with Rudolf Steiner this past Monday. Coming out a little nervous in the first quarter, our Bears tipped off against a young Rudolf Steiner team. The baskets went both ways early in the quarter, but once we found our footing, we took control of the game. We worked on our motion offense and tried piecing it together in the first half. We had great success with our offensive pick-and-roll combinations, creating many opportunities to drive to the basket. In the second half, Rudolf Steiner never quit and pushed to close our lead during the 3rd quarter. We stepped up to this challenge in the 4th quarter, working hard to maintain control of the game until the final whistle. Every player contributed to this result through their hard work and determination creating a feeling of success for each player and the coaches.  We look forward our next game with Rumsey Hall in two weeks. Final score: 38-21

JV vs Rudolf Steiner
The junior varsity team played Rudolf Steiner at home Monday. It was a well-played game on both sides, and the teams were nicely matched. Our players showed improvement from their first game and played with more confidence. Throughout the game we had many opportunities for scoring, and played strong defense.  Rudolf Steiner was able to pull away in the first half; however, our players kept their composure and enthusiasm, and worked hard to close the gap in the second half. They nearly tied the game in the the final seconds. Final score: 16-17

Girls’ Varsity vs Rudolf Steiner:
The girls’ varsity team traveled to Simon’s Rock College to play Rudolf Steiner on Monday.  With ten players, we had a nice five-team rotation throughout the game. The girls worked to find their rhythm in the first quarter. In the second quarter the girls began to move the ball and understand how to rebound against a taller team. They used a play they had been working on in practice with great success, out-scoring Steiner in the second quarter. The second half of the game was fairly balanced, and WMS played especially strong defense. Overall, it was a nicely-balanced game with everyone feeling good about their play and having a lot of fun on the court. Although we were not able to close the gap from the first quarter in the end, we played a terrific final quarter with numerous players contributing to the score over the course of the game. Final score: 22-32
