In review: Sullivan West girls’ basketball

Posted

LAKE HUNTINGTON, NY — In this time of the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, sports of all sorts are in limbo: the Summer Olympics have been postponed, professional sports are on indefinite hold and scholar athletes are cooling their heels until they get the signal that the threat of the coronavirus has passed.

In an effort to keep the spirit of local high school sports alive, The River Reporter is presenting a series of retrospective flashbacks from recent events, starting with the Sullivan West versus Chester Academy girls’ basketball game of January 6, 2020.

The original story titled “Hope Springs Eternal” was posted online on Wednesday, January 15, while the print edition was published Thursday, January 16.

This version focuses on previously unposted/unpublished photos from the event, so in a sense, in the words of Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”

And in the words of Jim McKay, long-time host of ABC’s Wide World of Sports, a chance to relive “the constant variety of sports… the thrill of victory… the agony of defeat… the human drama of athletic competition.”
