HERMON – Class B North has once again been a treat in the early stages of the high school basketball season, and Saturday proved Hermon and Presque Isle should both be near the top come season’s end.
The girls squads traded blows deep into the fourth, where Hermon’s Caitlyn Tracy hit several key layups in the final minutes to help give the Hawks a 54-47 win over the Wildcats.
Both the Hawks and Wildcats boys teams played high tenacity defense throughout their contest, which ultimately went to overtime. There, Hermon locked down on defense and hit key free throws to earn a 60-56 victory. Both Hermon teams are undefeated in Class B North at this point.
