Fan buses for boys', girls' playoff openers

It’s playoff time for Albany High School’s boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, and the school is providing a fan bus for the games!

 

The boys’ team opens the Section II Class AA playoffs with a first-round game at Troy on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. Admission to the game is $3.

 

The Falcons (8-12) finished fourth in the Suburban Council Gray Division and are seeded 11th in sectionals. The Falcons lost their only meeting during the regular season with Troy (13-7), which finished second in the Gray Division and is seeded sixth overall.

 

The Lady Falcons (13-8) are the regular-season Suburban Gray champions and seeded fifth overall for sectionals. They will open with a quarterfinal game against No. 4 Saratoga Springs (13-6) on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The game is at Shaker High School at 6 p.m. Admission is $4.

 

The Lady Falcons won their regular-season meeting with Saratoga, which finished fourth in the Suburban Blue Division.

 

Good luck to all of our student-athletes!

 

Fan buses will be available for students for both games. Each student must have a signed permission form to board the buses, which will leave from the Washington Avenue parking lot one hour before each game. You can download the permission forms at the following links:

Jones collects milestone wrestling win

Congratulations to Albany High School senior Tyson Jones, who has become the fourth wrestler in school history to record 100 career wins.

 

Jones (pictured at right) collected the milestone win in the semifinals of the Big 10 Wrestling Tournament at Albany High on Jan. 28. He went on to win the tournament championship in the 220-pound weight class for victory No. 101 (he’s 101-32 during his varsity career). Please visit our Athletics News section to read more.

 

School records for Albany High sprint relay team

Check out this excellent Jan. 31 extended CBS6Albany studio interview with the members of Albany High School's record-breaking sprint relay teams: seniors Jarrell Chaney, Syeed Holtzclaw and Kevin Mitchell, and junior Blaise Umuhaza.

 

On Jan. 21 at the New Balance Games in New York City, the team broke the school record in the 4x200-meter and 4x400-meter relays. After that meet, the team was ranked sixth in the state in the 4x400 and 13th in the 4x200. These fleet Falcons have the fastest times in the Capital Region this year in both events -- and are aiming to go even faster!

 

Albany High junior bowls first perfect game

Congratulations to Albany High School junior Jahlil Young on bowling his first perfect game in the Falcons’ match against CBA on Dec. 13.

 

Young rolled a 300 in the final game of the match at the Playdium Bowling Center in Albany. He persevered through a tense final frame to close out his first-ever perfect game.

 

“It was very exciting as the first ball in the 10th frame was a little light and tripped out the “7” pin late,” Madsen said. “With the next ball he was able to trip out the “4” pin, and then then for the final ball he buried the shot!” The Board of Education recognized Young for his achievement at its Jan. 3 meeting. Please visit our Athletics News section to read more about Young's perfect game.

Director's Memo: Sports are a time commitment
Updated for the winter 2016-17 sports season
Sports are a time commitment.

If you are participating in a varsity, JV, freshman or modified (grades7-8) 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.
