Hail to Our (Eastern) NY State Champs!

By | Sports

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Before we exit football for 2015, we would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the tremendous seasons both Saratoga Springs (Class AA) and Schuylerville (Class B) had this year. 


Both the Blue Streaks and Black Horses reached the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, for their respective Class’ state title game - and for the first time ever, this past weekend. While the outcomes of those games were not what most fans were hoping for, to be a runner-up in a state title game should not diminish all the great play and highlights each team accumulated throughout the year. 


As a first-year sports editor, these teams made my life difficult – trying to pick the one or two spotlight photos out of the many that came in from Mark and Francesco after each game. I assure you it was a labor of love, however, and made for a season I certainly will always remember fondly.  



Saratoga and Schuylerville took the gridiron each week and played with distinction and dignity, sportsmanship and skill. I don’t claim to speak for everyone, but I know that there are many fans of both teams who wish to salute the players and coaches for a job well done – you are champions, gentlemen!
