in

Timing means everything in state basketball competition, and the New York State Regional championship game is not the place for a basketball team to go stone cold.

That was the fate of South Kortright’s Rams as SK’s season ended Saturday at LeMoyne College in Syracuse. The cold-shooting Rams fell 52-36 to New York State’s top ranked Class D team, Section III’s undefeated Patriots of Sackett’s Harbor.

The template remained the same Saturday at Herkimer College as the South Kortright Rams girls’ basketball team outlasted Section III champion Oriskany, 47-38, to reach the New York State semifinals for the second season in a row.

A combination of balanced scoring, clutch foul shooting, strong rebounding, and stingy defense lifted the Rams to another regional championship. South Kortright, New York State’s top ranked Class D girl’s team, improved their record to 22-0.

The brighter the lights and the bigger the venue, the more dominant is the game of South Kortright senior center Robyn Ward. Like she did a year ago, Ward found the Binghamton Arena the perfect basketball setting, scoring a game-high 22 points and leading SK to their second consecutive Section IV, Class D girls’ basketball title, a 44-38 victory over Worcester on Saturday.

When Roscoe boys basketball coach Fred Ahart locked the balls in the equipment room and stored away the team uniforms after Wednesday night’s final game of the season, he completed another chapter of an incredible coaching saga. Ahart’s coaching narrative at the tiny Sullivan County school covers 43 chapters, 43 seasons as the Blue Devil football and basketball coach. Ahart’s story is a story of resilience, a story of loyalty, a story of family, and a story of a love in helping shape the lives of young men.
