Strutting Down the Court: SSHS Girl’s Basketball Hosts Scrimmage Against Amsterdam

By | Sports
SARATOGA SPRINGS — In order to prepare for their upcoming season, the Saratoga Springs High School girl’s basketball team hosted a scrimmage against Amsterdam on Tuesday, November 22. Although no running score was kept, the game was competitive in its entirety, and gave the team a chance to test their skills in a game-like setting. The Blue Streaks will hold eleven players this season. Of those eleven athletes, seven are returners. Of the remaining four, two were pulled up from JV late last season, and two players are completely new to the varsity game. One of the challenges for the Blue Streaks will be being competitive during each game that they play. Said head coach Robin Chudy, “we want to be able to win each game that we know we’re capable of winning, as well as compete against some of our tougher opponents.” Those tough opponents include Shaker, Albany, and Shen. The team will look for major redemption against these three teams this season. Last season the three teams handed the Blue Streaks six of the team’s nine total losses. In order to avenge these losses, Coach Chudy hopes that this year’s roster will provide a more balanced game with the addition of more shooting guards. She will also be looking for certain players for leadership this season. On the offensive side of the basketball, junior Briann Barringer will provide a dominant presence under the glass Recalls Chudy, “Briann is able to grab boards and rebounds every game, which will really help our offense.” Sophomore Kerry Flaherty will be a major contributor to the Blue Streaks. She has been a member of the varsity squad since she was in eighth grade, and each year she has never failed to impress. Says Chudy, “Kerry will be a major factor in our offense. She can help control the tempo of the offense each game for us.” The team’s season opener is scheduled for Friday, December 2 at Saratoga Springs High School. Tip off is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
