NISKAYUNA — The latest highlights in Niskayuna High School athletics, plus what’s coming up this week for the Silver Warriors.
US Lacrosse included Kayla Treanor, a 2012 Niskayuna High School graduate, in its 24-player roster this past Thursday for the U.S. Women’s National Team’s foreign tour this upcoming summer.
Now a senior at Syracuse University, Treanor is a two-time finalist for the Tewaaraton Award.
LOOKING FOR NO. 10
The best season is nearly a decade hit a speed bump Friday for the Niskayuna boys’ basketball team, as Guilderland dealt the Silver Warriors a 60-53 defeat.
Niskayuna trailed by as many as 16 points midway through the third quarter, but cut its deficit to two points with 94 seconds to play.
The Silver Warriors next play Tuesday at Bethlehem. In that game, Niskayuna will seek its 10th win of the season — a win total the Silver Warriors have not hit since the 2005-06 season.
ONE UP, ONE DOWN
The Niskayuna girls’ basketball squad fell 48-23 last Friday, just three days after walloping Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake in a 70-25 victory.
BY LAND OR BY SEA
At the Stanner Games in New York City, the Niskayuna indoor track and field teams produced several standout results.
Leading the way was the boys’ 4×200-meter relay team of Michael Reyes, Joey Romano, Soja Moore, and Mateo Parzych, which took a sixth-place finish and set a school record in the event with a mark of 1:34.88.
For the Niskayuna girls, Lexi Sciortino came in second place with a 5:20.66 in the 1,600-meter run, while the group of Marisa DiVietro, Grace Minkin, Erica Wasserbach, and Amelia Kokernak took second in the 4×400-meter relay at 4:09.43.
Meanwhile, the Niskayuna boys’ swimming and diving team picked up a 98-61 win Wednesday against Fonda/Johnstown. For the Silver Warriors, solo wins came from Ethan Bachert, Trevor Matuszyk, Matthew Chao, Ben Cazer, Mark Lipkin, and Spencer Brownewell.
At Saturday’s Schenectady Invitational, the Niskayuna wrestling saw Eoghan Sweeney win a championship title .
The Silver Warriors will be in action Wednesday against Bethlehem in a league crossover.
