SPORTS: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back; Boys' Basketball Team Stumbles

Two steps forward one step back... a catchphrase reflecting on an anecdote about a frog trying to climb out of a water well; for every two steps the frog climbs, it falls back by one step, making its progress arduous. "Wikipedia."

Two steps forward, one step backwards is the way the Crusaders' last few games have gone.

Lady Cs Fall Short; Offense and Rebounding Sputters

Despite a game high 25 points from senior Rachel McCarron, host G-D (5-8) fell to Nashoba Regional, 49-42 in Midland B action.


Hoping to avenge a 71-57 loss earlier in the season, Crusaders came out playing aggressive, scrappy defense, disrupting Chieftains' (6-0, 11-2) offensive flow. "We certainly didn't play well in the first half," said Nashoba assistant coach Barry Call. "Give them credit for that."
