  • It's two in a row for the Lady Cougars as they battled the Falcons from Tolland last night in a CRAL matchup. The Lady Cougars pressed their way to Victory 40-33. Maria Galley led all scorers with 13 points. Lexie wheeler had 9, while Ava Magarian and Anna Matus added 7 and six respectively. Not only did Jada Reyes-Tran and Haydin Courtois get on the board on offense, Jada with 2 layups and Haydin a free throw, they were defensive stallworths as well grabbing rebounds and keeping their hands in the passing lanes. Nour Abunasra, Carly Pitruzzello, Anna Kim, Morgan Reed and Olivia Petgrave hussled throughout and caused havoc as well. Ella Suppucich and Bridget Doherty moved the ball well on offense. The Lady Cougars now have 6 days off before their next game when they travel to Ellington to take on the Wildcats. The last game of the season is next Friday against Illing. Hope you can come out and cheer on the girls.

  • The Lady Cougars hit the hard wood once again last night to battle the Lady Cats of Ellington.  It was a hard fought battle throughout the game, though TE prevailed with 27-23 victory.  The Lady Cougars were led by Lexie Wheeler with 11 points, while Maria Galley, Hayden Courtois, and Anna Matus added eight, 4 and four respectively.  Overall, the Lady Cougar defense held strong and allowed their opponent very few open looks at the hoop.  What's next on the horizon? The Lady Cougars next play East Hartford today after school, then they are back in action on Monday at home against JFK from Enfield.

Leading the Cougars was Lexie Wheeler, Haydin Courtois and Maria Galley with six points a piece. Reagan H-D, Nour Abunasra and Bridget Doherty each chipped in with 2 a piece.
