Both the Elwood/John Glenn boys and girls basketball teams are enjoying successful seasons and are aiming for a long run in the postseason.
The Westhampton Beach boys and girls basketball teams, however, have struggled this year and will not be a factor in the playoffs. Both Hurricane teams suffered losses to their powerhouse foes from Glenn on Friday, with the boys falling 83-40 at home and the girls taking a 65-38 road loss.
The boys are now 1-10 in League VI, 3-12 overall. Their female counterparts fell to 1-10, 1-15 overall.
In both games, a low offensive output in the first quarter set the tone. The boys fell behind 22-9 during the first quarter and were down 46-15 at halftime while the Lady Canes were outscored 18-4 in the first quarter and faced a 35-14 halftime deficit.
Freshman Kristen Polan and senior Nicole Komorowski, who have been the standouts this season for the Lady Canes, were the only players in double figures for Westhampton Beach, with Polan leading the team with 14 points and Komorowski tallying 11 points.
Glenn’s Jaclyn McKenna led all scorers with 19 points and 10 rebounds.
On the boys side, Michael Corrigan was the only Westhampton Beach player in double figures with 14 points. Glenn had four players in double figures, led by Phil Izevbehai, who tallied 26 points and 10 rebounds.
