March 3, 2013 – Among the girls, Kim Kocienski of Hoosic Valley is one of the Capital Region’s toughest defenders. She plays the defensive end of the floor very aggressively and is all over her opponents like a new suit. She has the quick hands and is capable of picking your pockets at any time. Kocienski especially proved her defensive proficiency in two crucial Section II Class C playoff games against Hoosic Falls and Berne-Knox-Westerlo. She held Hoosick Falls scoring star Frankie Pearson to one bucket and three points, and the Bulldogs’ prolific scorer Liz Harvey to one field goal and eight points.
