Exciting Super Sunday Closes 14-15 Season
The Stamford Youngtimers Girls Basketball League concluded its 2014-15 season with an action-packed “Super Sunday” event on March 8 at Westhill High School. “Super Sunday” is an annual event that celebrates the entire Youngtimers season with league championship games and skills competitions.
The day started with the “Futures Game”, a contest of third graders from the Starters program who will be moving up to the Junior League next winter. In the “Futures Game”, Emma Boolbol of Advanced Air scored 10 points to lead the Gold to a 22-18 win over the Blue. Isabella D’Orta of Youngtimers added five points for the Gold while Julia Marchetti of Good Dreams Daycare tossed in six points for the Blue. For the first time, the SYTBB held skills competitions in the Little Timers (kindergarten and 1st grade) and Starters (2nd and 3rd Grade) programs. In Little Timers, Jalynn Presley raced to the Speed Dribble Championship. In Starters, Stamford Peace’s Peyton Sigtryggsson captured the Speed Dribble title while Katerina Koutouvides of Good Dreams Daycare won the Shooting Championship.
The Senior Division took center stage next at Super Sunday. Top-seeded Allyson Rioux Memorial Foundation outscored Doyle Partnership 15-4 in the fourth quarter to rally for a 36-28 win and the Senior Championship. Summer Klein scored 20 points, including 10 in the fourth, to pace Rioux. Peyton Hackett contributed nine points for Rioux. Devon Yaghmaie was outstanding in defeat, tallying 13 points for Doyle. In the Senior skills, Jessica Nelson of Instant Replay sped her way to the Speed Dribble championship, Claudia Moses of the 8th Grade Travel Team earned the Free Throw title and Alissa Lauture of Contractors Supply shot her way to the 3-Point championship.
In the Junior Division, sixth-seeded Good Dreams Daycare continued their torrid finish to the season by outlasting top-seeded Schoonmaker, George & Blomberg 24-19 and capture the Junior Championship. Good Dreams won their last seven games after a 1-4 start to the year. Caitlyn Johnson poured in 16 points for GDD and Brynn Spingola added six. Sophie Blomberg netted 11 points for SBD and Ava Bakes collected four. In the Junior Skills, Audra Hansen of Gumballs ran her way to the Speed Dribble title and Bree Richmond of Youngtimers took home the Free Throw Shooting championship.
Every year at Super Sunday, the Youngtimers organization awards the Allyson Rioux Sportsmanship Award to a player from both the Senior and Junior Divisions. The award, named after Allyson Rioux, one of Stamford’s greatest high school athletes who passed away at a young age from cancer, is presented in conjunction with the Allyson Rioux Memorial Foundation. For the 2014-15 season, Sarah Peltier of the 8th Grade Travel Team was presented the award in the Senior Division while Allyson Rioux’s Carly Diamond earned the honor in the Junior Division. Both girls displayed the spirit of Allyson Rioux with their teamwork, sportsmanship and character throughout the Youngtimers season.
