Blazers take Class C regional championship

MILLBROOK —  They did it again! The Millbrook girls basketball team took the Class C regional championship in a game that they owned from the onset: halftime found the score at 31-15, with Blazers over rival team Port Jefferson. At the end of the third quarter, the score was 47-26 in favor of the  Blazers, and they took the final quarter, with a 61-30 finish.

Last year at about this time, on a Sunday afternoon, much of Millbrook had gathered at the Millbrook school grounds to welcome home a bus carrying the 2022 state champion Blazers.

Senior Emily Grasseler made her 1000th-point shot during the game, allowing her entrance into the 1000 Point Club, a special moment in her career, and a video was made on her by NFHS Network. Earlier this year, junior Megan Fox also made 1000 points and joined the 1000 Point Club.

The end of last year saw several excellent players graduate, but the girls left behind, with a few new recruits, showed what they are made of at Saturday’s game, playing for the NYSPHAA Southeast Regional Class C Finals at Farmingdale State College.

“The Final Four,” the state championship games, will find the Blazers playing this weekend. If they win their game on Saturday, March 18, they will compete in the finals for the championship on Sunday, March 19, at Hudson Valley Community College.

While Grasseler and some of the other seniors will soon be leaving Millbrook High School behind, there is hope that they will also leave behind the New York State title, as other seniors did last year.

Coach Adam Peek and athletic director Al Hammell are rightly proud of the team, but are also grateful for the parents, students and community in the massive support shown to the Blazers girls basketball team, as well as the other school teams that performed admirably this year.
