SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Springs Blue Streaks wrestlers are on a hot streak this season so far. Currently, they are 16-3, with losses to Shenendehowa, Ballston Spa, and Warrensburg.

“So far we’re doing pretty good right now. All of the guys are pretty much right on track, I’m happy so far,” said coach Kris West.

On Saturday, Jan. 6 the Blue Streaks held their invitational where 21 teams came and competed; Saratoga ranked fifth in the team scores.

“We had 19 teams at the invitational and we had a great competition. Probably the most successful tournament we’ve hosed in the last 10 to 15 years, it was great,” West explained.

With only three weeks until sectionals, West and the team are ready to give it their all.

“The guys are pleased because this year may be a bit of a down year; we’ve lost some seniors from last year out of our lineup but we kind of picked up right where we left off. Guys stepped up, we’re having a great season,” he said.

In any sport, a healthy rivalry with another school is important, it pushes each individual to do their very best.

“Shen is always a good rival, Ballston Spa, too. We’ve had some good battles with them over the past few years. Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake as well. They are all traditionally great in this program,” West stated.

Traditionally great indeed. All four schools are in the Suburban Council North League; Ballston Spa is ranked number 1, Shenendehowa is number two, Saratoga Springs is number three, and Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake is number five. The Section II Class A Tournament is Saturday, Feb. 3.
