Wylie Takes Over Schenectady Varsity Girls Basketball program

Kathleen Wylie will bring her basketball knowledge to Schenectady High School next season as the new girls varsity basketball coach replacing Carol Lupo who stepped down for personal reasons.

Wylie, a University at Albany graduate, played four years for Holy Names where she enjoyed tremendous success leading the squad to the Colonial Council championship en route to a 21-1 record as a senior.

Her father, Joe Anastasio built Holy Names into a Section II powerhouse.

Schenectady put together a 1-17 record a year ago and that win came over Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons. Ironically, Wylie was a coach on the NDBG staff.

Schenectady teams have experienced a couple of subpar seasons going 6-12 in 2009-10, and 12-7 for 2010-11.

Lupo spent seven years on the Patriots’ sideline. The 2008-09 season saw Schenectady finish 19-4 and win the Big 10 championship.

Wylie’s coaching resume shows one year as NDBG freshmen coach, six years as Albany varsity assistant and three years Capital District Youth Basketball League.

Wylie can’t wait to get started in her new position.


DeLuca steps down

In another coaching move, Paul DeLuca has decided to retire as Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake varsity baseball coach after tremendous success.

He will hang up his cleats after six years at the helm. DeLuca has been involved in the Spartans baseball program for 16 years as a varsity assistant and junior varsity coach.

The Spartans appeared in five Section II Tournaments.

In 2011, he was honored by the New York State Sportswriters Association as Class A Coach of the Year, guiding the Spartans to the state title.

Rob Duell, an assistant coach to the varsity, has been named to replace DeLuca.
