Lady Rockets rock Gilboa for a key Delaware League win

By John Bernhardt
It’s forward progress for the Roxbury girls’ basketball team. The Lady Rockets held Gilboa to a single point in the fourth quarter last week Tuesday, coming from behind to edge the Wildcats 41-39. The victory was significant for the young Roxbury team, propelling the Rockets past the Wildcats into second place in the Delaware League’s Mountain Division.

Roxbury boys are game but fall to leaders in hoop action

Roxbury’s boys’ basketball team took on two stiff challenges last week, going on the road to battle both of the Delaware League’s division leaders. Battling for consistency, a struggle for any young basketball team, the Rockets struggled to piece together four quarters of steady play against the DL leaders, Gilboa and Davenport.

Charlotte Valley Wildcats hold off Devils to tighten league hold


By John Bernhardt
The Charlotte Valley Central School gymnasium is a tough basketball venue for local boys basketball teams to visit in any given year.
