A new basketball season is beginning to kick into gear, and there was plenty of hoops action in Saranac Lake this week as both high school and junior college contests took place on area courts.
The Saranac Lake girls and boys high school teams opened their seasons in non-league matchups, and both squads emerged as winners while christening their recently renovated home court that includes a beautiful new floor and recently installed stands. The Red Storm girls squad played Monday and defeated Keene Central by a 37-31 score. Saranac Lake’s boys then followed on Wednesday with a 71-28 victory over Lake Placid.
Tuesday’s action took place at the Sparks Athletic Complex in a showdown between two junior college powers. The outcome didn’t go the way of the home squad as the North Country Community College men’s team dropped a 95-85 decision to Onondaga. Despite the loss, the Saints men are off to a solid start and had an 8-2 record following the setback.
