  • The Boys Basketball team lost to Illing Middle School 58-47 in Manchester. Outside shooting kept the Cougars in the game hitting eleven 3’s as a team. Turnovers led to some easy baskets for Illing and the Cougars fought back but it wasn’t enough.  The team fell to 1-1 for the season and they look to bounce back after vacation. There next game is away against Ellington on January 4th.
  • The Lady Cougars continued on their winning ways, beating Illing last night 32-20.  Shea Brochu led the Lady Cougars with 12 points, including three 3-pointers.  Maria Puniello added 6 points on the night as well.  TEMS was relentless from the start...opening up a 18-8 lead at halftime.  Key defensive efforts kept the Rams from getting anything going.  Adding to their lead after halftime, Allie Kupec finished a nice and-one midway through the fourth quarter.  Olivia Dzubin scored 4 points on the evening, Alex Gogic chipped in three, and both Elise Glunt and Emmi Tushe dropped a bucket each.  The Lady Cougars have a long extended break and get back at it after the holidays.  Congrats on a great game girls.
