Sectional Championships Set

No comments:
As Section 2 continues to work hard to rearrange the Sectional Championships after damage to the Glens Falls Civic Center's exterior forced the move, we now know where all five of the Section 2 Boys Basketball Championships will be held.

The D, C and B will be at Colonie High School, the A will be at Guilderland High, and the AA will remain in its previously set location at the Times Union Center.

Full details after the jump...

South High Marathon Dance: Our interview

No comments:
The South High Marathon Dance steps off tomorrow evening (March 6th and 7th) as students raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable organizations across our area.

During our broadcast on February 6th at South Glens Falls, I had the opportunity to talk with the principal of South Glens Falls High School, Carla Biviano and one of the chairpersons of the dance, Mackenzie.

After the jump is the part of the interview that aired again during our February 28th broadcast during the Class D Girls Quarterfinals at Warrensburg.  There's a few pieces that were edited out, for either time-sensitive information or due to a loud gym while the cheerleaders were performing at the start of the halftime show.

Let's help this South High Marathon Dance exceed $600,000 this year!  Go Bulldogs!

Wincowski drops 24 as Warriors advance to Class C Championship

No comments:
WATERVLIET - Joel Wincowski scored 24 points and fetched 12 rebounds as the Lake George Warriors defeated the Hoosic Valley Indians 56-47 to advance to the Section 2 Class C Championship.

The Warriors will face Waterford, who defeated Greenwich 49-32 earlier in the evening.

The Warriors started off quiet, going down early before a Joel Wincowski three put the Warriors up 15-14.  The Indians stormed back, scoring the next 12 points as they built a 26-15 lead with the help of John Rooney's nine 2nd quarter points.

Lake George would storm back to close to within two at the half, and then continued the warm streak by outscoring Hoosic Valley 20-11 in the third quarter with the help of Wincowski's 8 points in that pivotal quarter.

He would finish with 24 points as he would pass Robert Phelps for 11th all-time scoring in New York State.  His career total now sits at 2,479 points, 7 points behind Felipe Lopez for 10th.

Kyle Jones became the Warriors key contributor behind the arch, scoring 15 points on 5 threes.  Dylan Hubbard was also a threat from long range, scoring 9 points.

For John Rooney, he finished his high school basketball career with 15 points, scoring only two during the second half.  The 2014 NYS Small School Player of the Year finishes with 624 points during the 2014-15 season.  Dan Joslin gave the Indians scored 17 points, and Matt Epsey scored 10 points.

The game was moved to Watervliet after exterior structure damage at the Glens Falls Civic Center forced the move.  All games that were scheduled for the Civic Center have been moved, including Saturday's Sectional Championship.

The time and location for the Class C Sectional Championship is not official at this time, and will be announced at a later time.

BREAKING: Civic Center wall collapses, Section 2 Semis moved

No comments:


That collapse has forced more rearranging of Section 2 Semifinals.  Here's tonight's changes:

CLASS D SEMIFINALS:
North Warren vs. Fort Ann - Will now be played at 5PM at Saratoga High School.  As a result, tonight's Class D Girls Semifinals will be at 6:30PM & 8PM respectively.

CLASS C SEMIFINALS
Waterford vs. Greenwich / Hoosic Valley vs. Lake George - Will now be at 6:30PM & 8PM at Watervliet High School.

The schedule will also force tomorrow's & Friday's semifinals to be moved, however, the details remain fuzzy about those at this time.

We are planning on making it over to Watervliet High School to cover tonight's Lake George/Hoosic Valley game live on FOX Sports Radio 1230 beginning at 7:50PM.

Sectional Thoughts: Day 8

No comments:
First ...
From Merriam-Webster:

speculation

noun spec·u·la·tion \ˌspe-kyə-ˈlā-shən\
: ideas or guesses about something that is not known
: activity in which someone buys and sells things (such as stocks or pieces of property) in the hope of making a large profit but with the risk of a large loss

Yeah.  Alliteration doesn't work with Sectional Speculations.  Soundings also sounds good, but that doesn't work either.

Second ...
Calling Tuesday "Day 1" is like stating the NCAA Tournament starts on Thursday with the Round of 64.  Traditionalists will feel that way, but the tournament starts with the four games played on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The same applies to Sectionals.  The tournament began last Friday, making yesterday ... Day #8

Now onto the games...
