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


Career point total reached by basketball players Kelsey Terrell of Middleburgh and Mason Flatley of Lake George. Terrell hit the milestone with 22 points in a 54-49 win over Duanesburg. Flatley reached the special plateau with 11 points in an 86-43 win over Fort Edward. They joined this season's 1,000-point club that includes Justice Brantley (Catskill), Dante Bouchard (Gloversville), Kerry Flaherty (Saratoga Springs), Peyton Lufkin (Argyle) and Duncan Tallman (Mohonasen).


Points generated by Joseph Girard III of Glens Falls in a 96-65 Foothills Council win against Johnstown. The Syracuse commit nailed 10 3-point baskets in his top scoring game this season after outings with 34, 41 and 53 points.  As a junior, Girard III produced 50 points or more 11 times including 60 twice when he became the state's all-time scoring leader.


Seconds it took for Shenendehowa wrestling star Stevo Poulin to pin Chris Petteys of Hudson Falls in a 106-pound match at the Wrangle in the Plains Tournament. That pin wrapped up a 5-0 showing for the reigning state champion, who was named the Wrangle most outstanding wrestler for the lower weights.


Molly Brophy's Section II-leading scoring average after the Greenwich sophomore dropped 30 points on Stillwater in a 62-38 Wasaren League win. The sophomore delivered a season-high 38 points against Schoharie.


Seconds into overtime when Collin Lagios scored the game-deciding goal in the GMSVS Storm's 3-2 Capital District High School Hockey League win over Adirondack. Earlier this season the Storm beat the Capital District Jets 4-3 on an overtime goal by Brendan Dunleavy. 


Wins without a defeat by Niskayuna's Matt Mania wrestling champions in Glens Falls. Jack Schiavo (120), Ben Catrambone (126), Willie Thacker (145) and Peter Meshkov (160) all went 3-0 and combined for eight pins, with Thacker notching three of them. Niskayuna beat out 13 other squads to claim the team title. 


Number of times Kelsey Chmiel of Saratoga Springs has been selected the top cross country runner in her class by the New York State Sportswriters Association. The NYSSA 2018 Senior Runner of the Year was honored after her junior, sophomore and freshmen years, as well. Additionally, Ella Kurto of Saratoga Springs was tabbed the NYSSA 2018 Freshman Runner of the Year.


Wins by Schenectady indoor track and field athletes at the Ithaca College Bomber Invitational, where Shakura Murray (38-1) and Colin James (46-3 1/2) both had the longest triple jump efforts. Murray joined with Maia Smith, Christina Davis and Kadie Ann Whyte for a narrow victory in the 4x200 relay (1:52.21) over Penfield (1:55.22).


Wins by the Saratoga Springs girls' gymnastics team after it prevailed at the Shaker Invitational and beat Bethlehem to begin defense of its Suburban Council dual meet championship. Laura Eberlein won the all-around title at the Shaker Invitational and fellow Blue Streak Sophia Damiano took all-around honors at the meet with Bethlehem.


Position finish by Amsterdam's Lauren Santiago in the 300 and Gabby Stanavich in the 55 hurdles at the Ithaca College Bomber Invitational. Other individual event winners included Kathryn Tenney (1,500) and Nino Seidou-Bakari (weight throw) of Colonie, Kyle Culley (1,000) and Matt Cavaliere (1,500) of Bethlehem, and Ahmad Praileau (55 hurdles) and Donald Jones (pole vault) of Albany Academy.
