The Falcons finished eighth overall out of 20 teams that competed in the tournament at Schenectady’s Boulevard Bowl.

 

Albany 'Falcan' holiday food drive -- Hoops Against Hunger

The Albany Booster Club and Albany High School are organizing the Hoops Against Hunger initiative at two upcoming basketball games.

 

All spectators who bring two or more food items will receive free admission to the Albany High girls’ home games against Averill Park on Friday, Dec. 15, and the Falcons boys’ home games against CBA on Thursday, Dec. 21. Please visit our Athletics News section for more information.

 

More than 10 percent of Capital Region families struggle with food insecurity, and that number is more than double in our region’s poorest communities. The goal is to donate 500 pounds of food to the food pantries during the holiday season.

Director's Memo: Sports are a time commitment
Updated for the winter 2017-18 sports season
Sports are a time commitment.

If you are participating in a varsity, JV, freshman or modified (grades 7-8) sport, please keep in mind that you are making a commitment to your team and that sport. To be fair, each player must make the commitment to be present at each practice and contest throughout the season before tryouts begin. This weighs heavily on the decisions made by coaches when they determine their rosters. A schedule is given at the beginning of each team’s season and is also available before tryouts upon request.
