Sixth Grade Boys Red Finishes Strong

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow could stop the 6th grade boys Reds from finishing the regular season on a high note – overcoming the weather and a gritty Stamford JCC team to win 41-32 on Sunday.  The win puts a final stamp on the regular season with a 7-2 conference record and a #2 seed going in to the FCBL tournament.

 

Stamford JCC jumped out to an early 6 point lead in the first quarter but then New Canaan stepped up its pressure defense and the outside shots started falling.   Graham Ladley and Ryan Tonghini made some tough defensive stops and snagged key rebounds to stop the Stamford momentum.  Aidan McLaughlin stepped into a Stamford passing lane and took it coast-to-coast for a driving layup to even the score at 22-22.

 

From that point on the Reds were able to pull away.  Travis Sturcke heated up from outside knocking down some key jump shots, including a clutch three pointer.  Connor O’Donnell forced back-to-back turnovers which he converted into layups late in the fourth quarter to ultimately put the game out of reach.  

 

The team enters the tournament on a three game conference winning streak.   Hopefully the team will continue to hit on all cylinders and can continue their confident play during the season-ending FCBL championships.

Important Notice from NCBA Re Safety Monitors

The NCBA received concerning news today from NCPS that our teams have not been consistently providing safety monitors at Saxe during practice hours.  In some instances, the doors have been unmanned but wedged open to let anyone access the school which is a very serious safety infraction in the eyes of the Saxe administration.  In order for the NCBA to use the Saxe facility, we are required to have at least one full time safety monitor at the door 10 minutes prior to practice and until a new safety monitor arrives, and if the last practice of the evening, until the last child from each team leaves the school.  Failure to do so could result in our loss of use of the facility or the very expensive requirement that we use professional security for all NCBA practices and games. 

One safety monitor must remain at the door to let people in, and under no circumstance should the doors be wedged open to let people in; if you are a safety monitor in charge of the door, you must be present at the door for the entire assigned time.  The second monitor should be located in the hall between the two Saxe gyms to make sure that no one roams the halls.  We have had reports of players roaming the halls prior to, or after practice, and minor property damage (pulling down artwork) has been reported.  If only one team is practicing, then the safety monitor should man the door to let people in.  Chairs are provided for the safety monitors.

Starting today (Monday February 6th) and continuing through the remainder of the season, if a team fails to post a monitor during its scheduled practice times as outlined above, the team will forfeit its home gym time for all home games during the week of the infraction.  A second violation will result in the cancellation of all remaining home games for that team for the rest of the season.  School officials and NCBA board members will be checking to make sure that safety monitors are on site during scheduled practice times.

In addition to practice safety monitors, the NCPS is requiring us to have someone at the Saxe door for all home games commencing this weekend and continuing through the remainder of the season.  At this point, we are working to find non parents to man the doors during games because we know that most parents want to watch their kids play in games.  We hope to hire some high school seniors to let people in for weekend games.  If you have an older child or know an adult that would be interested in manning the doors at Saxe on weekends, please contact one of the NCBA board members to provide details.   

Please make sure that all safety monitors are assigned for this week’s and all future practices for the remainder of the season and that there is a backup system in the event that plans change.  Thank you for helping to ensure that we continue to have gym space to play basketball in town - your cooperation is essential and greatly appreciated.
