BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Unified basketball team scrimmaged against Burr and Burton on Monday.
“For some, this was their first ever Unified game since we have not played since 2019. I am so proud of the effort of everyone — we learned and improved a lot with limited practices before the game. We didn’t even think we were going to have a season a month ago, and to come out and execute our plays was very impressive given the short time frame,” said Brattleboro coach Tyler Boone. “I’m also impressed with the sportsmanship our athletes showed, supporting not only their teammates but congratulating BBA players when they made plays.”
Tyler Bolduc played solid defense for the Colonels and drained two shots from downtown in the first minute of the contest. Nearly every player scored points for Brattleboro.
