It seems like just yesterday it was late August with it’s heat and humidity but in less than a week we’ll turn the calendar to October and with that our high school fall sports season enters it’s second half. A good time to take a look at what’s played out for the schools in the Wasaren, in the sports that they play. Which league school has enjoyed the best overall start regarding all it’s teams and how many teams are state ranked in the various sports?
Regarding the three sports we cover the most at Wasaren Sportsnet, football and boys and girls soccer, it’s hard to say any school is enjoying more success than the Warriors of Stillwater.
The girls soccer team sports a 10-0 mark, have scored an impressive 65 goals in their 10 matches and are the number one ranked Class C team in the state.
The football team through four weekends of play is a perfect 4-0. They’ve outscored their opponents 167-28 and are the 12th ranked team in New York state in Class C.
The boys soccer team rounds out the successful trio with an excellent record of 7-2-1.
Their neighbors, the Red Raiders of Mechanicville have put together a dominant fall on the soccer fields with both the girls and boys teams dropping just one game each.
The girls at 7-1 received honorable mention in the Class B NYS rankings while the boys are undefeated in Wasaren action and sit at 8-1 overall.
The Cambridge-Salem football team holds the number one ranking in New York state in Class C. The Indians, who own state titles in Class D the past two seasons make the move up in classification and haven’t missed a beat with a 4-0 mark, averaging 44 points per contest.
The Hoosic Valley girls soccer team has put together a 6-2-1 start in Schaghticoke and the Valley is ranked 12th in the state rankings in Class C.
Stepping away from soccer and football the Greenwich girls cross-country team continues to dominate. The Witches are the top-ranked team in the state for Class C and recently won the Ocean State Invitational in Rhode Island for the second straight year, running away from the second place team 23 -116.
In golf, with their regular season nearing it’s end, Hoosick Falls, Greenwich and Saratoga Catholic all own double digit win totals this fall.
Impressive to see three teams from the Wasaren ranked number one in the state in their respective sports. But while the recognition is nice, final four weekend isn’t on any coaches or players mind. Their focus is on getting better today and playing their best over the next month plus in what could end up being a special fall season for a number of teams in the Wasaren.
