The Boys Junior Varsity Basketball team suffered its fourth straight defeat at the hands of neighboring Pomfret School. Even though the score indicates otherwise, the game was a nail biter.

The defense was propelled by Johnny Schaer ’14 and Jack Greenburg ’15. The Wolfpack would then get a taste of their own medicine when Pomfret would hold them scoreless for the rest of the game and eventually taking the victory over Hyde, 40-25. The Wolfpack was led by Omri West ’17 who had 8 points and Marus Greenidge ’17 who had 10 points.
