Here are 10 noteworthy numbers from the last week in Section II high school sports.


Total number of assists by Bailey Gergel of Queensbury (50) and Emily Mormando of Mayfield (40) in the Panthers' five-set, non-league volleyball win over the Spartans. Mikayla Myers also had a triple-double for Mayfield with 24 defensive digs, 20 kills and 13 service points. Mayfield dropped the first two sets before winning the next three


School record-tying point total put up the Queensbury football team in its Class A Grasso Division Week 2 win at Mohonasen. The Spartans scored 62 points two other times against South Glens Falls in the 2014 and 2016 seasons. Queensbury generated 48 points in the middle quarters in its 62-20 win.


Number of aces senior setter Annabelle Rieseler served in Duanesburg's four-set volleyball win against Berne-Knox-Westerlo. Rieseler also delivered eight kills. Sophia Loukidas added 10 kills and Erica Schettine had 23 assists for the Eagles.


Consecutive games in which Holy Trinity football standout Nacier Hundley scored at least one touchdown before Saturday's 35-17 loss against Cambridge/Salem. Hundley scored 28 touchdowns during his streak which began in Week 2 of the 2017 season. The last four of those TDs came against Corinth to open this season. Though held out of the end zone by Cambridge/Salem, the junior did throw a touchdown pass on an option play to Noah Foster.


Number of goals Johnstown field hockey star Taryn Ringer knocked home in an 11-0 Foothills Council win over rival Gloversville. Ringer had five goals and an assist in the first half. There was 15:16 left on the clock in the second half when the all-state sophomore scored her seventh goal.


Goals produced by Schalmont's Luca Santabarbara in a 6-0 Colonial Council soccer win at Lansingburgh. Santabarbara scored his first three goals in less than 20 minutes which included a penalty kick. The senior striker and lone holdover from Schalmont's 2015 Section II title team factored in all of the scoring, adding an assist on a goal by Ryan Edwards.


Goals scored by Keegan Vedder in Christian Brothers Academy's 7-2 Suburban Council soccer win against Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake. Dylan Bogden had a four-goal game earlier in the season for CBA in a win against Colonie, and Brady Van Epps delivered three goals when the Brothers beat Shenendehowa and avenged a 2017 loss in the Section II Class AA final.


Different football playing sites of Stillwater's last three Indian Bowl wins against neighboring rival Mechanicville after the Warriors won 29-6 last Friday night at Tamarac High School. Stillwater won the 2016 game at Mechanicville in overtime 29-28, and notched a 48-13 victory in 2017 on its home turf.


Fourth-quarter touchdown runs by Glens Falls quarterback Joseph Girard III in a come-from-behind 36-28 Class B crossover win at Cobleskill-Richmondville. The Bulldogs led 14-0 early and 28-24 late before Girard III scored from two and nine yards away. The football and basketball star has run for five touchdowns and passed for five in the Indians' two wins to start the season.


Fractions of a second in which Tyler Berg of Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake beat schoolmate Evan Brennan by in the large-school cross country race at the Guilderland Invitational at Tawasentha Park. Berg ran the 2.86-mile course in 14:32.29, and Brennan closed in 14:32.45. Burnt Hills — ranked No. 3 nationally by Tully Runners — had five runners in the top eight and secured its second invitational team title in as many weeks.
