In an ambitious quest for success, the Rockville Rams are gearing up for their third win of the 2023 season, with an added motivation-- redeeming themselves against Granby Memorial who handed them their second defeat earlier in the season.

Both the girls’ and boys’ teams recorded similar standings so far, the girls achieving one win and six losses, and the boys with a 2-6 record. The Bears’ girls team sits with a 6-2 record, and the boys with 3 wins and 3 losses.

“It's a rough start,” remarks captain Andrew Carangelo, “we’re hoping that we make a comeback, because we started the season hard, but it's going to get easier.”

In their previous game, the Rams suffered a 26-38 loss for boys, and a 24-53 loss for girls against the Bears. “I think we’ll get there, we tried really hard, we put in the effort, we had energy.” says Kourtney Anderson. Many players from the Rockville roster had graduated from the previous year, but the Rams still display notable plays and enthusiasm. Derek Albert, and Bannon twins Thomas and Matthew, will give the Rams an advantage on the next matchup, eager to showcase a triumphant comeback.

The Rams hope to show their full commitment for their rematch on Wednesday, determined and fueled from their previous setback. Rockville is still yet to play the remaining twelve games in their season, in hopes of achieving their first basketball championship win in Rockville history.
