Darrow defeated the Storm King School's Junior Varsity Team 63-38. Senior day for the gentlemen saw us host the Storm King School JV team. Our guys were still riding high from the previous victory, and you could feel the energy in the gym. Our guys made sure not to underestimate SKS just because they were a JV team, they knew that these young players were scrappy, energetic, played tough defense, and had some pretty good shooters who we did not want to get hot. Darrow jumped out to an early lead, and never looked back. They played lock down defense throughout the game, and frustrated the SKS players at all ends of the court.

Darrow Women's Basketball sprinted ahead of visiting Faith Christian in the second half to take a 49-40 decision in D's House. The slow paced first half (14-11, Darrow) became a track meet in the second half when FCA's full court press upped the tempo of the game. For the most part, Darrow was successful in breaking the press, leading to many layups and other good shot opportunities. Junior forward Crystal led the Ducks with 21 points, 18 rebounds 3 blocked shots, one of them a thunderous block that set off a roar in the home gym. Junior forward Tyler added 13 points and 15 rebounds while completing 5 steals. Senior guard Jayme (2 points) was once again given the assignment of defending the opposition's best player and did a great job with that task. Senior guard Royanne added 5 points off the bench, including a sweet 3 pointer that brought the crowd to its feet. Junior guard Meredith headed the Darrow press, forcing FCA to use time and energy bringing the ball up the court nearly every possession. Junior center Leah anchored the defense, scored 4 points, and ripped down 7 rebounds. Junior forward Naomi nailed 2 free throws (career firsts!), had two rebounds and connected with Jayme on the front end of a highlight-worthy pass to cutting teammate layup. First year forward Sakina scored at the buzzer, as she and first year Emelia were on the court with the tri-captains, tasked with closing out the win. Darrow is now 11-3, 6-2 in HVAL play and will close its league season with a trip to Storm King on Saturday.
From Coach Ouellette: Darrow triumphs 75-59. FCA came to D's house to take on a Ducks team that lost a starter to injury. Our gentlemen took this game personally as FCA embarrassed us by 20 in the first game this year, and the gents said it wasn't going to happen today. Darrow jumped out to an early 20 point lead that moved up as high as 31 before finishing the game up by 16.

Darrow Women's Basketball came back from a 7-point deficit midway in the second half to edge 3-time defending league champion Oakwood Friends 34-32 on Senior Day in D's House. Junior forward Tyler scored 17 points to lead Darrow, including three 3-pointers. She also generated 7 steals and pulled down 9 rebounds. Junior forward Crystal added 12 points and 17 rebounds in a 32-minute effort. Senior guard Jayme also played the full 32 minutes, leading the Darrow press defense and guiding the offense from the point. She also scored a basket.. on a day when every point mattered. Senior guard Royanne (2 points) rotated in and out with junior guard Meredith and both displayed hustle and desire, forcing several turnovers that allowed Darrow the opportunity for the comeback. At one point in the second half, Darrow had its "Death Lineup" in the game which required Meredith to play the center position, at least for one offensive possession! Junior center Leah effectively anchored the defense and made a crucial free throw down the stretch. Darrow played with poise in the hectic final minute when the visitors were applying intense full court pressure.
The Darrow Ducks lost to Oakwood 48-76. Darrow traveled down to Poughkeepsie to take on an Oakwood team that was built around 1 player who scored 32 against us last game. As it turns out, he seems to be even better at home as he scored 47 despite having Henry stuck to him almost the whole game. Darrow did play quite hard, and stayed with Oakwood well in the first half while playing some stingy man-to-man defense and were only down 7 going into half time. While we continued to play hard, Oakwood's scoring ace caught fire and began to hit from just about anywhere on the court. Our guys continued to fight hard, but it was clear that frustration began to set in during a quite physical game.
