Varsity Basketball Week Ahead (Mar 4-10)

The Navigator Pep Rally on Friday was a lot of fun! We were happy to recognize the great achievements of our basketball teams and get the entire school excited about the playoffs. I couldn’t be more proud of what we have accomplished as a team this year and am looking forward to what is to come. We have a very busy final week ahead for our basketball teams. Below is the schedule:

Monday (3/4): Boys practice 4:00-6:00 p.m at Salem Academy

Address: Read Gymnasium, 16 Lynch Street, Salem, MA 01970

If we have a snow day, practice will be on, but we will need to meet in Salem. Pick up and drop off will need to take place there. If anything changes, I will let you know.

Tuesday (3/5): Boys Semi-Final Playoff vs. Bridge Boston at 5:30 p.m.

This “home” game will be held at Salem Academy. Tickets at the door for this event are going to be $3 for students and $5 for adults.

I will bring the boys to the game in a van. I plan on leaving MCCPS at 4:00 p.m. The team can have a study hall and get homework done between 3:15-4:00 p.m. I will also be driving the van back to the school following the game and can take any of the boys back with me. 

If the boys win Tuesday, they would advance to the MCSAO League Championship game on Friday. Please come support us!!

Wednesday (3/6): Girls practice from 5:30-7:00 at Salem Academy.

I will bring the girls back to MCCPS following the practice and you can pick them up at the school at 7:15 p.m. If it is easier for you to pick them up at 7:00 in Salem, that is fine too.

Thursday (3/7): Both teams have practice at the JCC. 

We will meet at the JCC.

Boys practice 4:45-6:00 p.m.

Girls practice 6:00-7:00 p.m.
