BKW boys Basketball

On Feb. 16, the Berne-Knox-Westerlo boys basketball team was itching to get back on the hardwood since COVID-19 hit. The State, which designated basketball as a “high-risk” sport, finally gave the sport the green light with the help from Albany County and BKW school board to return.

Playing to a packed gym, Berne-Knox-Westerlo’s basketball teams — both the boys and the girls — were champions at the annual Holiday Tournament they hosted this past weekend at the high school.

Berne-Knox-Westerlo basketball fans packed the gym in Berne for a thrilling ride this past weekend as the Bulldogs battled to try to win Class C titles. On Friday, the boys, seeded 15th, suffered a close loss, 54 to 52, against Rensselaer, the 18th seed.

Berne-Knox-Westerlo Bulldogs boys took to the lanes and the court on Friday afternoon in critical Western Athletic Conference games early in the season. The basketball team played Middleburgh in a packed gym at home and battled in the second half to hold onto a 63-to-58 win.

Starting off on the right foot: Berne-Knox-Westerlo boys’ basketball team played Friday evening at home at full strength for the first time all season — football injuries had earlier sidelined several players. The Bulldogs beat Fort Plain High School decisively — 76 to 52.

On Friday evening, Dec. 16, Berne-Knox-Westerlo hosted Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons at home, holding their own for the first half but then losing, 81 to 58.
