    The Pride enter the County Center as heavy favorites after showing just how good they can be against Scarsdale. The stakes keep getting higher, but Ossining has just continued to get better.

    Like Ossining, the playoffs are where the Bulldogs really shine. Irvington should take care of business against Dobbs Ferry, setting up a nice championship game against Blind Brook or Kennedy Catholic.

    The Pirates are the favorites in Class A heading into the County Center, but have a tough semifinal against Albertus Magnus. It’s tough to beat a team three times in one season and this one will be for the title of “best in Rockland.”

    Lourdes reached the semifinals as planned, but John Jay-EF was knocked off by New Rochelle. The Warriors were hoping for a winner-take-all rematch, but should not sleep on a tough Huguenots team.

    The return of Sara Dowd bumps Kennedy back over Blind Brook, but on Tuesday, we’ll finally get to see who the better team is. The Class B semis may be the best girls’ game of the County Center week.

    The Trojans’ combo of Jackie Lavitt and Ali Silfen has been dominant, but for the first time this year, we’ll get to see them matchup against two bigs who are on their level in Kiera Hennessy and Shayna Gaskins. It will be a battle that you don’t want to miss.

    Monroe-Woodbury finished off Newburgh and heads into the Section 9 Class AA playoffs as the number one seed. Anything can happen, but the Crusaders are the clear favorite.

    The Ursuline community has been waiting for a chance to play against Saniya Chong and they finally get it in the Class AA semis. Alyssa Lawrence is a Division 1 player and will have to play at her best if the Koalas want any shot at an upset.

    The Huguenots finally break into our Top 10 after defeating John Jay-EF in the quarterfinals. New Rochelle is playing some of its best basketball of the year at exactly the right time, so we’ll see if they can pull off another upset against Lourdes.

    This week, we finally get a chance to see Hamilton play without Maia Hood. Obviously, the Raiders won’t be the same team, but they are still the favorites for the Class C championship. John Jay-EF, Clarkstown South, Wallkill, Albertus Magnus and the remaining teams in the playoffs are all on the bubble.
