In the middle of summer, why not talk about high school wrestling? Shenendehowa High School junior wrestler Alexis Porter captured the ASICS/Vaughan Cadet and Junior National Championships' Cadet girls' 143-pound division title at Fargo, N.D. recently.
It was expected to be a very close game so the finish didn't surprise anyone. Chaz Lott scored with one second left to propel CBA of Albany past Shenendehowa, 52-49, in a Section II Class AA quarterfinal boys basketball game Saturday at Hudson Valley Community College.
It was Super Saturday in Section II wrestling as five classes went to the mats. In Division I, Class I (Class A) at Colonie, Shenendehowa had a great showing with nine wrestlers taking championships en route to scoring 314 points for the team title championship.
The Shenendehowa High School wrestling team keeps rolling along. On Wednesday night, Shen defeated Columbia, 50-24, to capture the Suburban Council championship with an 8-0 record and put together its seventh straight unbeaten title.
