CATSKILL — Janay Brantley scored 42 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, had 11 steals and six assists to highlight Catskill’s 89-38 victory over Coxsackie-Athens in Saturday’s Patroon Conference girls basketball game at Catskill High School.

The victory capped off a week in which the Cats went 3-0, including two conference wins. In those three wins, Brantley scored 115 points, grabbed 36 rebounds, come up with 29 steals and dished out 23 assists. The talented junior has now scored 1,428 points in her high school career, which ranks 4th in Catskill hoops history.

“I just want to say what a great job Coach (Sarah) Wlodarczyk has done resurrecting the Coxsackie-Athens program,” Catskill coach Chris Quinn said. “She probably didn’t do the popular thing by not having a varsity team for two years, but in my opinion she 100-percent did the right thing. That team is on the rise and they play extremely hard.”
