Despite the Boys Varsity Basketball team having a rough start to the season, with a losing streak of eight games, the team enjoyed an exciting victory over New Hyde Park this past Tuesday.

In a true nail-biter, the team won 57-56.

Under the guidance of Coach Graham, the team meets each day to complete exercises designed to improve each player’s speed, endurance, and skill. This practice regimen is credited with being the foundation behind their dynamic play this past Tuesday.

Last year the majority of the Boys’ Varsity Basketball team’s roster was composed of seniors. The younger teammates have been fulfilling its responsibility of being a varsity player.

Though a challenging transition, the team is finding their way.

Currently, the roster for North’s Boys’ Varsity Basketball team includes seven seniors, two juniors, and one sophomore.

The younger players on the team stepped up to the plate. Sophomore Jackson Cronin described his experience of being a younger player on the team.

“There’s a lot of pressure representing North while playing against talented teams, especially being the youngest one,” said Cronin. “However, it’s been an incredible opportunity being on the Varsity team and learning to play with every type of player.”

Cronin’s team-first mentality has brought him success as he scored 14 points as point guard against New Hyde Park.

There can be a lot of pressure for the players to do well in front of their peers, but North’s Cheerleaders and Kilties have always helped restore the team’s energy and focus on the game.

A staple of North High, these girls spread spirit and positivity during every game. The two groups usually perform separately, but when they unite, it is always enjoyable for fans.

As sophomore Eden Harel described, “It’s exciting to watch the Varsity Basketball games and cheer on the team players,” said Harel. “It was especially thrilling once they scored the winning point against New Hyde Park which broke their losing streak.”

The North High family cheers on the Varsity Boys’ Basketball team and are confident in their success this season.

With the recent win, the Blazers are feeling positive as they face
future games and represent their school on the court.
