Post-Game Recap from Coach Beer: On January 19th, The Eagles started the game against Glenholme with excitement which led to a close score throughout the first half. It was a competitive second half, but, unfortunately too many turnovers allowed Glenholme to secure the victory. First year student, TD Lamzang, came away with many steals on defense and Ethan Chrystal hit a couple of key three-point shots when we needed an offensive boost. In addition, Gioia Taraboulsi and Riley Dubilier also provided strong defense throughout the game. The Eagles look forward to a strong week of practice to continue to improve their skills and teamwork, and of course get prepared for the MIT this Friday and Saturday!

1/11/18: The Maplebrook basketball team started off 2018 with a lot of enthusiasm. Sherman School brought a lot of energy and skill to the game which led to some exciting, competitive play between both teams. It was back and forth in the beginning but strong shooting from Sherman allowed for a gap in the score. The three MBS captains, Max Strober, Ransom Larson, and Riley Dubilier, who were all chosen because of their strong leadership in previous practices, gave a much needed boost to Eagles’ play during the course game. Tate Cunningham also added to the momentum when he made a key shot that was needed to spark to the Eagles’ play during the second half. Sherman ultimately won the game, but we are looking forward to showcasing our new skills and knowledge in our next game. Great job, everyone!

On Wednesday, December 6, Maplebrook hosted their first basketball game of the season against Glenholme. The Maplebrook Eagles started of strong and scored the first few points of the game. Ethan Chrystal put Maplebrook on the board early by scoring a couple of three point shots. Ransom Larson, who added to the scoreboard during the course of the game, did a great job coordinating his teammates through each play that they executed. Additionally, Gioia Taraboulsi, a first year student, did an excellent job in her debut game and managed to sink a basket. Back on defense, Nick Stauble used his height to his advantage and did a great job clearing out all opposing players. Overall, the Eagles played a great first half but lost some of that momentum towards the end of the game. Glenholme proved themselves as a second half team by landing almost every shot they took after halftime. Great job to all the players and please stay tuned for our next game at home on Thursday, January 11, 2018 vs. Sherman School at 3:45 PM.
