NISKAYUNA — Five things to know about this weekend’s news and upcoming action for Niskayuna High School athletics:
- Abigail Spiers was brilliant at the eighth annual Warrior Classic, netting a win in the 800-meter run and with her 4×800-meter relay team. Several other athletes also had big days for Niskayuna track and field at its home invitational, including Charlie Ragone and Ericka Stewart.
- Before losing Saturday and Sunday, the Niskayuna baseball team picked up a 3-0 victory Friday against Mohonasen. Mike Gabriele pitched the team to that day’s victory, while was followed by 10-1 and 9-7 defeats to West Genesee and Ballston Spa, respectively.
- The Niskayuna boys lacrosse team lost Saturday to St. Anthony’s, 8-6. Both teams are state-ranked.
- Cat Sexton continues to pile up assists for the Niskayuna girls lacrosse team, which won again Saturday against Bethlehem, 15-7.
- Baseball, softball, boys tennis, and girls track and field are all set to compete today — as long as the weather cooperates. Rain is forecasted for much of the day.
