Dutch sail to semis

Both Guilderland soccer teams — boys at top, girls below — advanced to the Class AA semifinals this week. The girls (16-1-0), the defending sectional champions and number-one seed in 2013, will play Saratoga on Friday night in Schuylerville after beating Colonie, 5 to 1, on Monday. The boys (13-4-0) play Shaker at 5 p.m. today in Colonie after beating Niskayuna, 3 to 0, on Saturday. Top, Chris Czekay kicks the ball; second, Kledis Cappollari flies through the air; third, Brittany Pulliam maintains possession; and bottom, Karly Meacham (#14) heads the ball despite being kicked by Colonie’s Clare Reilly.

It can be difficult to run outside in the winter. Cross-country skiing has become a popular alternative for Guilderland runners.  

Some basketball leagues of Section 2 will be restructured for next year following the fall out of the Big 10; Guilderland, Voorheesville, and Berne-Knox-Westerlo will have new opponents. 

Guilderland's defense made it almost impossible for Mohonasen to win Tuesday's game.
