One more day until students are home free. Three more days before Christmas. Instead of relaxing at home, hoards of kids, students, and parents came to see and support the undefeated GHS boys basketball team play against the Colonie Raiders.
The Dutchmen won the ball at tip-off, and managed to finish the first quarter with an 18-15 lead. The GHS cheerleading team performed during breaks and has done a great job of spreading school spirit. After the start of the second quarter, the Dutchmen managed to maintain the lead and was up 32-23 at the half. After an exciting performance by the GHS dance squad, the second half went underway. The Dutchmen went to get the victory convincingly with a score of 63-51. Andrew Platek led the team in scoring with over 30 points, scoring more than half the points for Guilderland. Platek recently received a scholarship offer from UAlbany, a division one school and is currently playing great basketball.
The boys managed to go 6-0 and is scheduled to play Troy on Tuesday, December 30th. Be there!
