BY DAVE SHEA
MADRID - Madrid-Waddington honored only one senior before Tuesday's Senior Night Game which was held on the final night of the NAC season which was condensed to 10 games because of the COVID-19 pandemic and concluded on the final school day before Spring Break.
The one senior was St. Lawrence University bound Emma Plumley who earned a place among the school's all-time best basketball players and student-athletes.
In her final game of her career she scored 22 points and dished out a host of pretty assists in the open floor as M-W finished the season at 7-3 with a 71-23 win over Parishville-Hopkinton.
While the Lady Yellow Jackets finished their season at home the M-W Boys (4-6) used an outstanding perimeter defensive performance to down Parishville-Hopkinton 52-32.
PLUMLEY'S TALENTS, COURAGE HONORED ON SENIOR DAY
"Emma had a great career for us. She helped carry on a long tradition of quality girls basketball at MW. She ended her career with 795 career points despite missing half of last season recovering from ACL surgery and playing only 10 games this season," said M-W Coach Bryan Harmer.
"She has set a high standard for our younger players and has been a real pleasure to coach. She was part of three of Section 10 Class C Championship teams and earned First Team All-Northern twice. Emma has represented our district very well as a student-athlete."
While Emma Plumley excelled as a finished and facilitator her younger teammates capped off a season where they showed the skills and execution to be an accomplished unit next year.
