The Crossroads boys’ basketball team kept its
unbeaten mark at home this season intact after handing visiting Brentwood School
a 59-55 loss last Friday.
The victory made it two in a row for the Roadrunners
in the win column and gave Crossroads an overall record of 8-6 before going up
against Milken in a Delphic League contest Tuesday night.
Crossroads picked up its first league win of
the season with a 78-34 win against Kilpatrick on Jan. 7.
The victory against
Brentwood School wasn’t just a non-league basketball game; the contest was part
of a full-blown viewing party of the different winter sports the two schools
offer. So parents of student-athletes had their eyes full watching basketball
The crosstown rivalry between the two schools drew
a packed house this year with as many as 1,500 people coming out for the annual
Sports Extravaganza. The event, which began in 2010, is unique in that it
features games played by both schools’ varsity and junior varsity soccer and
Crossroads won the Extravaganza Cup last year.
The Roadrunners made sure they kept the cup this year with victories in the
boys’ varsity and junior varsity soccer matches as well as claiming the win in
Brentwood School, which owns a 49-24-1 winning
mark in the rivalry varsity basketball game against Crossroads, didn’t go
quietly in the night. Brentwood’s girls notched wins in varsity and junior
varsity basketball as well as in soccer.
