The Voorheesville Blackbirds are in a good spot to defend their Section 2 title as the regular season winds down. On Friday evening at home, the Blackbirds did just that and a whole lot more. The Birds faced off against Watervliet — with a shortened bench — and won easily, 82 to 56.

For the Voorheesville girls volleyball team, the back to-back-sectional champions and 3rd in NYS was recognized by Albany County Executive Dan McCoy on Friday morning at Clayton A. Bouton high school during the executive's "Week of Champions" appreciation.

The Blackbirds are soaring again this year. The Voorheesville boys improved their record to 6 and 1 on Thursday when they beat the Bluehawks in Hudson. Voorheesville still has some of the core players from a team that has won back-to-back Class C/D regional titles.

The Voorheesville Blackbirds bowling team had a tough time trying to find the pocket for strikes last Thursday afternoon against the Catholic Central Crusaders at home at Town ’N’ Country lanes in Guilderland. The Blackbirds lost, 22.5 to 9.5, and 2633 to 2320 in total pins.

Guilderland, with a seasoned team, and Voorheesville, with a new indoor track team, both competed in the seven school Tri-Valley meet at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy on Sunday afternoon. The Blackbirds’ team has one junior and all the other athletes are younger.

The Guilderland-Voorheesville boys’ swimming team traveled to the Albany Academies in Albany last Thursday. The Guilderville swim team swam hard and fast but fell, 101 to 80. The team is now two and two on the season, and one swimmer has qualified for state competition in March.

The Voorheesville Blackbirds faced off against the Cohoes Tigers in an early Colonial Council matchup on Friday evening on the Cohoes High School court. The Birds’ tenacious defense kept the Tigers off kilter all game long, leading to the Blackbirds’ 51-to-35 victory.

Voorheesville's Katy Bablin was selected by the American Volleyball Coaches Association to participate in a convention held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, who is an unsigned student athlete, to show off her talent on the volleyball court.

Defending Section 2 champions, the Voorheesville girls look to keep their title this basketball season. For the third time in three years, the Birds are under new leadership — coached by Tom Maxwell.

Carrying high their hopes of playing deep into November for state championships, athletes from Guilderland, Voorheesville, and Berne-Knox-Westerlo showed their opponents that they mean business on the court, in the pool, on the gridiron, and on the course.
