     The JVB Girls Basketball team has had a unique situation this season..... a split personality.  The JVb squad makes up 90% of the JVA squad as there wasn't the numbers for 2 squads.  With a good portion of the squad consisting of young players, there needed to be opportunities for some of them to play closer to their skill levels.
As the season progressed though, their average skill edged further away from JVB and closer to a JVA squad.
      The JVB Girls have played some great games this season, and showed their meddle in games where they competed, in whole games, against good teams like Hazen, Mt Abe and St Albans.  They'd competed for with Great teams like Enosburg and Essex for good portions of the game.  W's and L's don't tell the whole story of progress... from looking up while dribbling, to quicker, better passes, to better movement with and without the ball this team has shown it all.

      Nothing demonstrated their progress better then their last game of the JVB season last night vs St Albans.  Not only did BFA keep pace with St Albans.. they pulled ahead by 5 in the 3rd qtr as well.  This team has always brought heart to every game, but they haven't always brought a mental focus to match that determination.  This game was glaringly different.

       4th qtr saw more battling and St ALbans go on a run that would give them as much as 15 pt lead - but BFA battled back with 4:00 to go to cut the lead to 6.  But tired legs from playing exceptional basketball every night this week, finally caught up with them.  As they got to the corners and outside a bit slower - St Albans hit the open shots to pull away.  Final was score 41 - 29 ( 10 pts better than their last lost to them)
       Evident was the girls meddle in this game - they would not back down and didn't get down about mistakes.  One of the BEST Last Games of the seasons i've seen in a few years.
Congrats JVB Girls and Good luck with finishing the rest of the JVA season!  Go Bullets!
