Grace Hanratty competed in the New England Indoor Track Championships at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston Massachusetts on Feb. 29. Hanratty represented Old Saybrook in the 1,000-meter run and came in sixth place with a time of 2:59.03.
Hanratty earned her spot at New Englands with a second-place finish in the 1,000 with a time of 3:01.94 at the State Open Championship.
Earlier in the postseason, Hanratty claimed first place at the Class S State Championship in the 1,000 with a time of 2:59.85, which helped the Rams secure second place as a team at the meet.
Hanratty did not run the 1,000 at the Shoreline Conference Championship meet in lieu of competing in the 600, the 4x400, and the 1,600 sprint medley relay. Her contributions in those events helped propel Old Saybrook to its fourth-straight conference championship.
The Old Saybrook boys’ basketball team finished wrapped up its season with a pair of games last week. The Rams took a loss against Morgan, but end the year on a high note with a win over North Branford. With these results, Old Saybrook’s final record on the season was 2-18 on the season.
On Feb. 24, the Rams headed to Clinton to take on the Huskies and took a 76-71 loss in overtime. Old Saybrook fell behind by a 14-7 margin after the first quarter, but stopped the bleeding in the second to trail 31-23 at the half. The Rams took back some ground with a 25-20 third quarter, and forced an overtime period with 18-15 fourth to knot the score at 66-66. In the extra frame, Morgan outscored Old Saybrook 10-5 to take the 76-71 decision.
Davis Brown scored 32 points for the Rams while Mike Almada added 16 points. Ben Yost (8), Shon Ryan (7), and Ruley Lawson (5) added some points to the final tally for the Rams, as well.
Three days later, the Rams closed out the season with a 72-68 win at home versus North Branford. Old Saybrook posted a narrow edge after a 21-19 first quarter, but fell behind 33-30 by the end of the half. The Rams offense exploded for 27 points in the third quarter to take a 57-49 edge heading into the final frame. North Branford had a valiant effort to come back with a 19-15 fourth, but the Rams held off the Thunderbirds for the victory to close out the year.
Brown scored 24 points, and Lawson supplied 14 points in the victory. Gino Gallitto added nine points, while Almada provided seven. Peter Waida, Toby Marineau, Shon, and Ryan Stratton all had three points apiece.
