SKS Athletics Heat Up the Month of December!!!!
SKS Boys Varsity Basketball took the long road trip up to Hoosick, NY, on Saturday and bested the Hoosac School Owls 57-35. The Cougars pulled away from the home team in the second half, closing the physical game with a 21-3 run. Senior Kolby Braxton led all scorers with 24 points, but the story of the game was the tough man-to-man defense applied throughout by the visitors.
In their game versus Marvelwood on Saturday, the boys JV squad played a strong game but fell to their opponent 34–41. Boys Varsity will face the Gunnery School at home on Wednesday, 12/12, at 3:00 pm followed by the JV team versus Faith Christian at 4:30 pm.
The girls varsity basketball team played host to the Hoosac Owls on Saturday. Despite a long bus ride, Hoosac came ready to play, with an aggressive offense from the opening tip. The Storm King girls shut them down rapidly and opened a substantial lead by halftime. Hoosac rallied late in the second half but was never able to catch up. Senior Cat Zheng put up 9 points, followed by her fellow senior Maya Buranbayev who posted 8 more. On Wednesday, 12/12, the girls will travel to Poughkeepsie to take on the defending HVAL Champion Faith Christian Academy.
