NISKAYUNA — Here is what you need to know for today and this weekend about Niskayuna athletics.
(NOTE: The next rundown will run Tuesday, Sept. 15.)
BOYS’ SOCCER: Colonie 1, Niskayuna 0
GIRLS’ SOCCER: Niskayuna 6, Colonie 3
GIRLS’ TENNIS: Niskayuna 9, Colonie 0
GIRLS’ VOLLEYBALL: Colonie at Niskayuna (No score reported)
GOLF: Niskayuna 245, Colonie 262
Well, an entertaining one for the Niskayuna girls’ soccer team, for sure. The squad got a goal and two assists from Marika Contompasis, while Hannah Munro had two goals for the Silver Warriors in the win.
In the Niskayuna girls’ tennis match, all nine Silver Warrior entries were victorious — and five of the team’s solo players won without dropping a set. Pulling off that feat were Lesley Santos, Val Luttman, Sasha Towe, Miryam Makutonin, and Zara Shah.
Also, for the Niskayuna golf squad, Mike Doxie fired a 38 to lead the team.
UPCOMING TOP GAME
We get a fun doubleheader Saturday, as both the Niskayuna boys’ soccer and Niskayuna girls’ soccer teams take on Albany Saturday.
Also, don’t sleep on Niskayuna football at South Glens Falls. That game tonight has the look of one where the Silver Warriors could break their winless streak.
