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


High triple rolled by both Elizabeth DeLorenzo of Mohonasen and Dakota Deitz of Colonie in the girls' large-school competition at the Rotterdam Invitational at Sportsman's Bowl. Katie Adamec of Mohonasen had the high single with a 256, and the Mighty Warriors knocked down 2,758 pins to secure the large-school team championship. Columbia won the boys' large-school team title. Small-school team honors went to Schalmont (boys) and Lansingburgh (girls).


Assists totaled by all-tournament selection Derek Haughey of Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake at the boys' state volleyball championships. Fellow all-tourney pick Jake Baker had 54 kills in the Division 2 competition where the Spartans went 2-2 in pool play before a 3-1 loss to JFK-Bellmore in the title match.


Combined kills recorded by Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake freshmen Carlie Rzeszotarski and Callie Chevalier at the girls' state volleyball semifinals, where the Spartans went 2-4 in Class A pool play. Rzeszotarski slugged 30 kills, and Chevalier delivered 20 to spark the Spartans' front-line attack. Setter Claire Isaksen averaged just under 11 assists per set in what was Burnt Hills' 17th consecutive final four appearance.


Finishing time in seconds by Alayna Gray of Fonda/Johnstown in the 50-yard freestyle preliminaries at the state swimming and diving meet, which was best among all entrants. Gray went 23.48 in the final to net second in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association results and third in the Federation results. The junior from Johnstown also placed third in both divisions in the 100 free (51.48). 


First-half points generated by the Shaker football team in a 27-19 Class AA state semifinal loss to New Rochelle. Shaker led at the half 19-13 on touchdowns by Joe Toutai, Logan Souza and Jeff Meadows. The Blue Bison had 266 yards of offense in the first half, but 46 in the second half when New Rochelle rallied.


Number of plays by Glens Falls that covered 20 yards or more in a 48-28 state Class B semifinal football win over Marlboro. Aalijah Sampson scored on three of them, on a 85-yard pass play and on runs of 55 and 32 yards. Sampson scored four touchdowns in all as the Indians earned a shot at their second state title in three years Saturday at the Carrier Dome.


Number of sets played by Voorheesville at the state girls' volleyball semifinals after the Blackbirds forced a playoff and then lost to Millbrook 25-16. Voorheesville went 3-3 in Class C pool play which included a finishing 25-23, 25-21 sweep of Mattituck to force the extra set. Voorhesville and Millbrook had split earlier in day.


Top-6 finishes by the Bethlehem girls at the state swimming and diving championships (New York State Public High School Athletic Association results), including a second by Sydney Sorbello, Maggie Hartman, Megan Novak and Anna Bernasconi in the 200-yard freestyle relay (1:37.08 All-American consideration). Sorbello was sixth in the 50 free, 100 back and in the 200 medley relay with Ella Kaback, Hartman and Novak. Novak was sixth in the 100 free. 


Touchdown runs by Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake senior Vincent Daviero, covering 3 and 13 yards, in the Spartans' 21-20 state Class A semifinal loss to Cornwall. Daviero was named Burnt Hills' top offensive performer after running 32 times for 196 and scoring twice for the second game in a row. Rece Gobel also scored for the Spartans on a pass from Darien LaPietro. Burnt Hills lost its third state semifinal game in as many years, and was denied an opportunity to go after a second state football championship.


Number of New York State Federation cross country championship meets canceled after the 2018 edition at Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls was called off due to last week's snow storm. The event was first held in 1974. Saratoga Springs was put on hold in its quest to win a 24th girls' Federation team title.
