Rosie’s Rounds

By Rosie Cunningham

The South Kortright boys basketball team fell for the first time this season to Unadilla Valley on Friday. It may be just what the team needed and hopefully, they will learn from the loss. Senior Andrew Jackson dropped 35 points in the win and is a solid ball player all around - he has some teammates (Levi Rifenburg) who are great contributers as well. Although I may get shunned for repeatedly saying it, the Rams need to determine a way to lessen their turnovers before they go into sectional play or their run will be short lived.

I had my times mixed up for a Franklin and Downsville girls match-up Monday and I showed up at the end of the face-off - which was the girls contest that I had been looking forward to all week. Downsville has been a power house in the Delaware League and has a good coach, and some standouts in Kailee Young, Olivia Brunner and Kenzie Hammond, as well as a few additional role players as well. The Eagles stopped the Campbell sisters and took home an impressive win. I hope that either Downsville or Stamford will square off against South Kortright in the crossovers and give them a run for their money.

Some hoop contests which should be great to watch coming up are the Walton boys at Unadilla Valley on Jan. 11 and the Warriors at home against Sidney on Jan. 14 (7 p.m.) On Jan. 11, The Stamford girls will go headto head with South Kortright and if the Indians are on point, it will be a competitive contest (7 p.m.)

Again, we have some talented MAC wrestlers and teams (Walton-Delaware Academy, BGAH and Deposit- Hancock and Sidney) and I have enjoyed learning the sport. As I encouraged last week, I would like to receive more information regarding local track from coaches. Please e-mail me any information and/or requests at
