A Great Year for Friends Basketball

The Head coach Deanna Petrucci comments, Girls advanced to the ACIS Semifinals against Avenues and lost in a tight matchup. The Head coach Deanna Petrucci comments, “"I was optimistic coming into this season and we made great progress all year. The girls came to practice every day to work hard and build team camaraderie. We finished 3rd place in the league and 13-8 for the season. We had a great first round win in the ACIS tournament, and played our best game of the season in our semi final match-up against Avenues. Unfortunately, we fell short in a loss by 4 points, but as a coach, I was tremendously proud of the girl's effort and the team that showed up to play that day.”


Boys won the ACIS Conference Championship against Dwight and progressed to the NYSAIS semi-finals, where they suffered a tough 48-47 defeat against Collegiate. Head Coach Adam Cash comments, "Coming into my first season as Head Coach, I honestly didn't know what to expect from the team. I knew we had the potential to be pretty good, but I don't think I expected to end the season with a 20-8 record and the ACIS Championship.. Although it didn't end the way we had hoped, I can't begin to describe how proud I am of this team. I couldn't have asked for a better group of young men."
