NEWPORTâ€“A much better looking North Country girls basketball team took to the court on Tuesday night to square off against the BFA Comets. Although they did not get the win, dropping the contest 57-45, it was a greatly improved showing from last week's match with CVU.
"I am really proud of the fight that the girls showed," said NCU coach Christiane Brown. "It is not like we are two fighters in the ring, but when someone throws that first punch, are you going to lay down or are you going to get up and say is that your best shot, and the girls stood up and I am proud of them."
North Country's girls played a much improved game against BFA St. Albans, but fell short in their goal, losing 57-45.
Also, the Lake Region boys defeated Peoples Academy 62-48. Now the question remains, who can stop them?
