DCS Girls and Boys Varsity Basketball Teams State-Ranked

UPDATE (as of 1/17): NEW state rankings posted on Tuesday, 1/17 saw BOTH of our basketball teams moving up the ranks!

Our girls team is now ranked #3 (top rated Section 2 team!) – and our boys team is now ranked #4 (the 2nd highest rated Section 2 team, behind Chatham)!


DCS’ boys and girls varsity basketball teams are both having great seasons so far! As they look to close out the last few weeks of the regular season and get ready to take on the postseason, both teams find themselves state-ranked by the New York State Sportswriters Association: http://bit.ly/3W7IhXE
