With a successful football season behind us, plans were being made for a successful basketball season. Our plans seemed to be working out fine as we trimmed Lyons and Irondequoit in successive weeks. Along came a surprising Brockport quint to foil our plans. They took a spine-tingling one point thriller from us on our home court. The following week Brighton’s powerful Barons took our measure. After losing two games in a row, we bounced back to win from East Rochester. We closed the first half by beating Webster and finished third in the first half standings.
Our goal for the second half was to win the second half crown. We won the opener and trimmed Penfield in a non-league tilt before meeting Brockport. If we could beat Brockport we would have a good chance of winning the second half crown. After leading through most of the game we lost an over-time thriller. The following week we tried desperately to beat Brighton, but lost another thriller, 36-35, on our home court. After two heart-breaking losses we beat Rush-Henrietta, the B champions, and Penfield, the C champions, in succession. Then came the game that we had been waiting for! We trimmed our rivals from East Rochester, 46-44, for the first time in about seven years. We beat Webster and Spencerport in the last two games of the season and finished the second half in second place, behind Brighton and East Rochester, who were tied for the second half championship.
The Red and Blues finished the season with a fine record-12 won, 5 lost. They made themselves known as one of the stronger teams in the league.
In addition to the fine showing and good record, Fairport received the honor of having John Meyers selected for the all-county basketball team.
