Warriors of the Week – April 8
Matti earned two victories on the mound over league opponents, Ichabod Crane and Schalmont, only surrendering one earned run in both games combined. She also contributed offensively. She hit two doubles and drove in four runs in the victory. This past weekend, the team competed in the Scotia tournament, where Matti earned another win on the mound.
Elijah won the high jump in last Tuesday’s league meet against Schalmont and Cobleskill. Then, at the Niskayuna Warrior Classic, Elijah won the high jump with a personal best 6’4″. This was also a meet record for the invitational. He beat the next closest competitor by six inches and automatically qualified for the New York State Championship in June.
