Watkinson’s boys and girls varsity basketball teams are in the final stages of regular season competition and both teams have postseason play on the horizon. The boys enter this week boasting a 12-1 record, including a big win against Hamden Hall Country Day School last week. The girls team, the winners of the 2023 New England Tournament, is currently 10-3. Both teams and their coaches are looking to keep the momentum going. Girls Varsity Coach Kristalyn Baisden reflects, “Despite 7 new underclassmen on the team this year, the girls varsity basketball team has had a strong showing this season with an 11-3 record, to date. We’ve emphasized a fast start and focused play from our starters in order to allow their teammates the opportunity to gain experience on the court. In our game against Westover last week, our entire team was able to contribute to scoring. With postseason play ahead of us, the team looks forward to building on their success so far!”
