|Oak Bluffs School|
Well it's the second week of January 2014 and its 14 degrees outside but in the gym the Oak Bluffs Girls Basketball team is on fire!!! The girls are 3-0 on the season and looking to remain in first place until the it's all said and done. It's no surprise the team's leading scorer is 3rd year player, Molly DeBettencourt. She is surrounded by some key defensive standouts in Rose Engler and Kathleen Alves. Mia Pagliccia and Kanika Datta have also put in some very quality minutes. The biggest surprise this season is 1st year player Elizabeth "Betty" OBrien who has showed that she is a defensive force, not to be overlooked.
The boys team has not had the same success as the girls team this season. They are 0-4 on the season and looking to just hold their own against much older and larger opponents. The Oak Bluffs team has several 6th grade starters, something that hasn't happen in Oak Bluffs in a long time. Two sets of 6th grade twins Aiden/Logan Araujo and Jeremy/Jared Regan, have been role players on the varsity squad. There are a couple first time 8th graders that have also contributed to the team, Perry Bliss and Harrison Door. This season seems to be a rebuilding year here in Oak Bluffs and the future looks very bright. The Junior Varsity team is 4-0!!!
