BY DAVE SHEA
Several girls basketball teams completed their hectic six-week NAC Basketball season on Tuesday night and coaches were able to take the time to stock at what was achieved.
Madrid-Waddington's Bryan Harmer expressed his thoughts after his team downed Parishville-Hopkinton 63-10 in the first of a home and home series which will conclude tonight (Wednesday) night in M-W.
"I have been so impressed at the way our schools have followed their safety plans so this season could happen. It wasn't too long again that it looked like we might not have a season.
But getting in 10 games in six weeks was something and it was great just to see the players back in the gym and enjoying themselves," said Coach Harmer.
"Our team had some great games and improved a lot. We worked on a lot of things which will help us next year."
