A quick shower passed through Voorheesville during the Blackbirds’ only home meet of the season; other planned meets had been nixed due to weather. Tuesday was Senior Night, as the Blackbirds faced off against Ichabod Crane and Watervliet.

The diamond was cold and windy last Thursday when the Voorheesville Blackbirds played a non-league game against Mohonasen at home. The Birds kept it close for four innings, being tied 1 to 1, but the Warriors flexed their muscles and downed the young Birds, 9 to 1.
