Career point plateau reached by Johnstown lacrosse player Alexandra Queeney when the junior notched four goals and an assist in a 21-4 Foothills Council win over Amsterdam. Senior Madison Etherton hit 100 career points in Johnstown’s season opener, and Lady Bills junior Abbey Hollister is 10 points away from the varsity milestone.


Track and field points accumulated by a pair of Shenendehowa twins with their wins at the Niskayuna Warrior Classic. Junior twins Jada and Jade Dennis prevailed in the 800 (2:16.66, meet record) and 3,000 (10:28.36), respectively, and senior twins Chidera and Chidalu Anamaze took first in the shot put (37-2 1/2) and discus (126-3), respectively. Each of the Anamaze sisters also earned a second place in the throwing events to help Shenendehowa secure the girls’ team championship.


Goals scored by Glens Falls sophomore Phoebe Fox in back-to-back Foothills Council lacrosse games, including 10 in a 20-16 loss to Scotia-Glenville, which was one shy of the school record. Fox notched eight goals and added three assists before that in a 16-15 loss to Schuylerville.


Seconds it took for Colonie senior Michael Hermance to win and set a meet record in the 100-meter dash at the Niskayuna Warrior Classic. Sophomore Jeremiah Davis of Schenectady was second in 10.96, which also beat the old meet record of 11.08 by Amsterdam’s Kevon Boucaud in 2017.


Seventh-inning runs scored by the Mechanicville baseball team when it outlasted Tamarac 15-11 in a Wasaren League game. Mechanicville’s big inning included four hits, five walks, two hit batters and three runs crossing home on wild pitches. In another Wasaren League game, Cambridge scored 10 runs in the fifth inning to take a 10-1 lead against Waterford-Halfmoon before the Fordians rallied for a 12-11 victory.


Assists collected by Averill Park senior Will Fleming, along with a pair of goals, in an 18-4 non-league lacrosse win against Schenectady/Mohonasen. Niskayuna senior Griffin King piled up six assists, as well as a trio of goals, in a 17-14 non-league win over Lakeland/Panas. Earlier this month, Hogan Fox of Glens Falls and Fred Smith of CBA had games with seven and six assists, respectively.


Meet records set at Niskayuna’s Medley Relay Challenge, including two by the host Silver Warriors’ Kaleigh West, Lindsey Matthews, Kristina Koes and Marissa Wise in the 800 sprint medley relay (1:50.88) and the 1,000 sprint medley Swedish relay (2:21.55). The Niskayuna girls also set a meet record in the distance medley relay (12:41.72), as did the Colonie boys in the 800 sprint medley relay (1:36.51) and the 3×110 shuttle hurdle relay (47.31). Josiah Kemp ran both events.


Hits Matti Muller allowed while pitching, and runs the Mohonasen sophomore knocked in when the Mighty Warriors beat a Schalmont softball team coached by her dad Jeff 13-1 in a five-inning Colonial Council game. Matti Muller belted two doubles, including a bases-clearing shot in the middle of a six-run second inning.


Wins for the Canajoharie softball team at the Fight Cancer Tournament at Mudville, first a 7-6 eight-inning triumph over Unatego and then an 8-1 victory against Lansing. Senior Mackenzie Bowerman was among the key contributors, going 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and 10 strikeouts against Unatego, and going 3-for-3 with a triple and three runs scored against Lansing.


Outs Saratoga Central Catholic senior Terel Tillman needed to complete a no-hitter, when Kessler Waldron delivered a seventh-inning single on a 1-and-1 pitch. Tillman then completed his one-hitter. He walked one and fanned 16 in his first win this year as the Saints beat Hoosic Valley 8-0 in a Wasaren League baseball game.
