The Boys varsity basketball team stands at 5-5 in League II play and prepares to tipoff against three teams that sit atop League standings. At a recent game against then undefeated Central Islip, the Wildcats played tough and coaches Tom Fitzpatrick and Ray Eatmon are proud of their teams effort.  “Our man-to-man defense is coming along, our slides are getting better, unfortunately we were just a couple baskets short,” said Coach Fitzpatrick in the 38-43 loss to the leagues top team.

“The guys hung in there and worked hard to come back, especially in the 2nd period when they went on a strong offensive run outscoring CI 16-9. A good part of that offensive run is credited to senior forward Julian Kleberg who had an outstanding game.  “It was one of Julian’s best games with a personal high of 15 points,” said Coach Fitzpatrick.  Andre Harris, once again showed why he’s been the Wildcats most consistent player scoring 10 points on the evening.

“The team as a whole has been a resilient bunch this year and I expect that to continue,” said coach Fitzpatrick. “We thank all the fans for their support and look forward to finishing strong in our last four games of the regular season.”
