As the regular season draws to a close, the Hamilton City Braves’ boys and girls basketball teams find themselves at opposite ends of the spectrum.
While the girls are one of the top teams in Division V, the boys, although competitive, have yet to win a Mid-Valley League contest.
Last week both teams traveled to Williams with the boys game on Jan. 31 ending abruptly after an altercation that resulted in a bench clearing brawl and forfeit loss, while the girls emerged victorious 53-37 on Feb. 1.
After a slow start against the Yellowjackets, the Lady Braves were able to pull away in the fourth quarter and remain atop the MVL.
Junior Morgan Avrit turned in a dominant performance pouring in 24 points and creating opportunities for her teammates.
Berenize Trujillo-Mendoza and Ally Ponke pitched in with nine and seven points respectively.
Hamilton’s girls team (20-6, 6-1) hosts Durham on today then travels to East Nicolaus on Friday for their regular season finale.
The boys (4-17, 0-7) were scheduled to play Durham at home on Tuesday before heading to Trowbridge on Thursday.
