WOODSTOCK — As expected, the Woodstock Academy Gold prep basketball team went into the Thanksgiving break in the top five in the country.
Nov. 21 the website National Prep Hoops ranked the Centaurs No. 1 in the country. That followed the 2nd2NoneBball poll on Tuesday afternoon that put the Centaurs into the No. 2 slot behind Massanutten Military Academy from Virginia.
The Gold team started the season ranked No. 7, but moved up when all six teams above them lost at the National Prep Showcase at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven over the weekend.
“We’re consensus top five across the board. It’s hard when you’re there because you will get everybody’s best shot. You can’t have a bad day,” Bergeron said.
Bergeron considers Brewster Academy, on paper, to be the best team in the country. But Brewster Academy had one of those bad days on Sunday morning in New Haven and lost to unranked Mount Zion Prep, 72-68.
The two wins for the Centaurs raised their record to 8-0 going into the Thanksgiving break.
“I didn’t know what to expect,” Bergeron admitted. “I had a bunch of kids that I didn’t know. Now that I know them, and I know how they interact and their level of character, I do expect wins out of them.”
The Centaurs are off until Thursday, Nov. 30 when they travel to Redemption Christian Academy in Troy, N.Y.
The top 10 in the National Prep Hoops poll is:
1. Woodstock Academy Gold
2. Brewster Academy (N.H.)
3. Hargrave Military Academy (Va.)
4. Putnam Science Academy
5. IMG Academy (Fla.)
