THE HIGHLIGHTS

Competing on back-to-back days was no problem for Niskayuna girls’ swimming and diving, as the Silver Warriors picked up a lopsided win. Recording solo wins for Niskayuna were Olivia Hilt, Elaine Lipkin, Anna Vitolins, Clare Stansbury, and Maggie Wyngowski; of those solo winners, Lipkin, Vitolins, and Wyngowski each won two races.

Mike Doxie and Vincent Tricozzi each shot a 44 to lead the Niskayuna golf squad to a victory in a battle of Warriors.

TODAY’S TOP GAME

We’ll shine the spotlight on the Niskayuna girls’ soccer team, which was ranked No. 4 in the state earlier this week. The Silver Warriors travel today to Averill Park for a Suburban Council match.
