On the girls side of things defending state champions and top ranked team in the state Stillwater is the class of the field in the C classification, with Voorheesville currently ranked third in the state sitting at the #2 seed. Cambridge at the fifth seed could make a nice run.
In Class B look for Tamarac to win their 8/9 matchup with Broadalbin, and possibly Greenwich can pull the upset over Cohoes. Mechanicville at #2 should handle their business through the initial rounds with a potential semifinal match with last year’s Section II champion Holy Names.
For the boys in Class C Cambridge comes out of their 8/9 game only to face face top ranked Voorheesville who will have to get past the winner of today’s Berlin/Hoosic Valley match. Waterford at #4 has a good chance to reach the semi’s.
In Class B Tamarac at the #4 seed could make a deep run as the Bengals will be a tough out for anyone. Look for #2 Mechanicville to run through their bracket all the way to the finals.
