It was too bad the season had to end for the Granville Golden Horde. And by that I mean every team, I wanted to see more.

 

Girls basketball struggled to produce points, but seemed to be one more scoring threat away from fielding an entirely different team. It was a tough season for the girls but they deserve lots of credit for not folding the tent.

 

The wrestlers enjoyed what would be considered a great year at many other area schools and registers as an average year in Granville. A young team did well against a league and within a section known throughout the state as a tough row to hoe. Many of the grapplers from this season return for next, with one more year under their belts.

In support of that program, growing the wrestlers of tomorrow, is Aaron Torres who coaches the Pee Wee team. Every state champion starts out there, it’s just a matter of where they go from there.

 

Boys basketball had the deepest playoff run and despite that final score were a bounce or two away from taking the lead and the game. It was a thriller that could have gone either way, great stuff.

 

Fortunately, before we know it the spring season will begin. Just dieing of curiosity to see how the boys will do this year. After reaching the B final everyone will see them coming and they’ll be getting the ace of every squad every time. I’m superstitious so I’m not saying a thing about the approaching season.

 

Most of the squad from softball returns and I believe that Hoosic Valley ‘phenom’ has moved on to college, potentially opening things up for everyone else in the Wasaren.

 

Tennis, really not sure.

Co-coaches Terry Wheeler and Nick Healy seem like a good combo, but I’m not sure who they have on the court from the last squad.

Track seem like they should have some maturing talent and I’m sure the winter track team’s existence will help.
