Omicron has created some challenges for basketball this season, but we’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The Panthers aim to play a regular schedule this week.
Last Wednesday, the JV boys stepped in to help fill the court for a home game v. Williamstown (51-35). The boys then took on Lamoille (57-50) on Friday with just six players. After a strong start from the Panthers, Lamoille muscled back the lead in the fourth quarter. Dillon Vance and Boone Fahey each had 13 points for the Panthers, Jacob Gilman added 11 points and Wyatt Cadwell had eight. They hope to turn their luck around this week with games v. Hazen on Wednesday (home) and Spaulding on Friday (away).
The girls have been off the court since their last game on Jan. 4, a 51-30 victory over Montpelier. Games will resume this week on Tuesday v. Windsor (home) and Thursday v. Lyndon (away). Though in-person spectators are still limited, all home games are live streamed on the NHSF network for our Panther fans.
In skiing, the team continues to bring the goods and have fun doing it. Coach Amy Huyffer shared this about their most recent race: “We had a great race on Thursday, with the whole high school team at Bromley. It was the first GS race of the season, the first GS race ever for most of the team, and the kids did great! Everyone is skiing so well. Shout out to Maya, who had the fastest run of the day, and Harley, who had the fastest combined time. The next three fastest were Addy Holzer, Bianca Pulaski, and Ella Harvey for the girls and Ben Acker, Isaac Yukica, and Tucker Gaffney for the boys. The new snow was fantastic and it was such a treat to free ski until the lifts closed after the race.” TA’s alpine skiers will race at Pico this Thursday.
