Class C quarterfinals
Voorheesville loses to Lake George on Saturday, 65-54, at HVCC

VOORHEESVILLE –– The Voorheesville boys’ basketball season came to an end on Saturday with a 65-to-54 loss to Lake George at Hudson Valley Community College.

The Warriors had four players score in double figures –– Aaron Chambers (19 points), Joel Wincowski (18), Ethan Wincowski (12), and Ryan Moll (10).

Birds’ Head Coach Don Catellier said that Ethan Wincowski, a freshman point guard, played very well for Lake George. “Their guards were awfully good,” said Catellier this week. “We tried two or three different defenders on Ethan, but he handled the ball well and didn’t make many mistakes, and he hit his shots.”

Chambers made three three-pointers in the game, but so did sophomore Dylan Henzel, who led Voorheesville in scoring with 14 points.

“He was in the zone,” Catellier said of Chambers. “People were in his face, but he kept hitting shots.”

The Blackbirds cut Lake George’s lead to six points in both the third and fourth quarters, but Catellier said his team couldn’t hit the “big” shot, saying, “We played hard, battled, but couldn’t get the ball to go in the basket when we needed it the most.”

Catellier said that Russell Daly, Jay Castren, Louis DiVirgilio, and Clarke Bissell were great senior leaders this season. Sophomores Logan Hotaling, Noah Crawford, and Henzel got plenty of playing time this year, so Voorheesville should continue to be in the mix.

The Blackbirds finished 10-10 after winning only a few games the season before.

“The future is looking pretty bright,” said Catellier. “But, for right now, these guys should be proud of what they achieved this season.”
