Boys MS Basketball—Blue Team With six sixth graders and seven seventh graders, these young Bulldogs played each game with tremendous determination and a feisty spirit, even as they faced opponents that were sometimes older and taller. The sixth graders brought much toughness, quickness, and energy to the squad. The seventh-grade players brought in a wealth of fire, determination, and experience to the Bulldogs. The only returning players from last year’s team, Rhys Bowie ’24 and River Smith ’24, helped to anchor down the guard position along with other exciting players such as Alex Soracchi ’24, Aaron Harrison ’24, and Lenny Park ’24. The “Boys on the Block,” Carson Reinhardt ’24 and Miles Krieger ’24, brought rebounding tenaciousness and aggressiveness to anyone who dared to play against them! Finishing with a team record of 4-7, the young Bulldogs played hard, were willing to be coached, and learned some important philosophies and strategies of the game of basketball.

Boys MS Basketball—White Team The White Team had another strong season, finishing with an 11-2 record. The team was deep and balanced, with as many as 10 players scoring in several games. In almost every game, the Bulldogs controlled the boards and played suffocating half-court defense accompanied by the occasional press to create even more turnovers. Two notable highlights: first, getting revenge at the Buckley School, the only team to beat the Bulldogs a year ago; and second, finishing undefeated at home. This marks the white team’s third straight year without a loss in the historic Silberfein Gymnasium. A strong group of current sixth and seventh graders from the blue team will make up next year’s squad.
