Guilderland High School

Seven Guilderland athletes held their own on Saturday as they competed with the best track-and-field athletes across New York State in the state championships at the Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex on Staten Island.

One critical shot or one mistake can lead a team to winning or losing when battling in sectional play to get closer to the finals. The Guilderland girls faced off against top-seeded Saratoga last Thursday at Saratoga High School.

Athletes from Berne-Knox-Westerlo and Guilderland took their talents to the state level this past weekend in wrestling, at Albany’s Times Union Center, on Friday and in gymnastics, at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island on Saturday.

The Dutch will send seven athletes to Staten Island for state track-and-field competition on March 7. Those seven Guilderland students reached the standard time or distance last Sunday at the University at Albany competition.

Track athletes from Guilderland, Voorheesville, and Berne-Knox-Westerlo battled in their sectional championships — Division 1 for Guilderland and Division 4 for Voorheesville and BKW — at the University at Albany on Sunday.

Ten Guilderland wrestlers along with one Berne-Knox-Westerlo wrestler who competed on Saturday in Glens Falls will be taking the next step toward the state competition on Feb. 28 to 29 at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association state tournament in Albany.

The Dutch will be sending three gymnasts to the state meet in two weeks. Sisters Carli and Allison Rem and Addison Seebode all qualified on Wednesday afternoon at Shaker High School in Latham.

Guilderland finished fourth, with 129 points, in the Class A sectionals Saturday at Bethlehem High School with 10 wrestlers earning a chance to compete at next week’s state qualifiers in Glens Falls.

The Guilderland boys traveled to Averill Park High School on Friday evening for a critical Suburban Council game trying to improve their seed in the conference. The Dutch fell behind and tried to mount a comeback in the second half but the Warriors sank their attempt.

Guilderland’s varsity team started the competitive cheer season with a victory. The four-time Section 2 champions competed on Sunday at the University at Albany for the annual UAlbany Showdown against nine other schools.
