Sixth-seeded Monadnock pulled off one of the great upsets in NHIAA tourney history on Sunday as the Huskies cruised to a 51-30 victory over #1 Conant, snapping the Orioles 58-game win streak, en route to the Division III Girls Basketball Championship.
The sixth-seeded Monadnock Huskies kept their post-season run alive on Wednesday night as they defeated #2 Fall Mountain, 49-34, in semifinal round action to advance to the title game of the NHIAA Division III Girls Basketball State Tournament. Monadnock was led by Breann Lawrence’s game-high 11 points, while the Wildcats were paced by a team-high 8 points from Nora Dunigan.
Monadnock will take on #1 Conant in the final on Sunday at 1:00 pm at Keene State College.
The wait is almost over. On Friday, December 10th, 84 of the 88 NHIAA boys varsity basketball teams will be in action with 42 games around the state as the 2021-22 season gets underway.
St. Thomas Aquinas hits the road to take on Hillsboro-Deering at 5:30 pm to mark the first official tilt of the new campaign. The Saints and Hillcats last squared off on February 28, 2020 in the regular-season finale as St. Thomas came away with an easy 72-46 victory at home.
Eight other contests tipoff at 6:00 pm, with 24 match-ups at 6:30 pm and nine more at 7:00 pm. It’s the most games on a single day all season long, so there’s no good reason to not get out and catch some local action on Friday night.
See you at the gym.
