Jamesville-DeWitt boys, girls earn victories, Bishop Ludden girls hold off Bishop Grimes
The Jamesville-DeWitt Red Rams held a double-header on Saturday, first with the girls team against Pittsford-Mendon, then with the boys taking on rival Christian Brothers Academy.
The girls met the Vikings in a rematch of last year's Class A, New York State Championship Game from the Capital Region.
This time around, the Red Rams held Pittsford-Mendon to only five points in the third quarter, cruising to the 54-38 win.
"We knew they had three of their starters coming back, so we knew they were still going to be just as good as last year, if not better," J-D senior forward Jamie Boeheim said. "Our game plan was to do the same things that we always do: Play good defense, box out most importantly, and run our offense -- try to make our shots and do the best we can."
The J-D boys met CBA in a rematch of last month's 76-74 thriller, where the Red Rams won in dramatic fashion.
This time around, it did not disappoint, as the Red Rams were able to hold off the Brothers, 63-60.
In more Section III girls basketball action, Bishop Ludden hosted Bishop Grimes from the west side of Syracuse.
Ludden star senior point guard Danielle Rausch did not play in the game due to a minor injury, but the Gaelic Knights proved that they could still win a game over one of the best in the area.
Aurora DeShaies recorded a game-high 27 points in Bishop Ludden's 54-52 win, holding off the Cobras in a thriller Saturday afternoon.
