The Flying Dutchman had a haunted start to the basketball season as both the boys’ and girls’ teams lost this week in their first games.

The Guilderland and Berne-Knox-Westerlo bowling teams hit the lanes at Town ’n’ Country in Guilderland this week to start their 2019-20 season.

On Monday afternoon, five Guilderland athletes signed the college letter of intent to move onto the next level of their career.

Swimmers focused on qualifying for states as they competed on Nov. 7 through Nov. 9 at Shenendehowa. Guilderville, made up of Guilderland and Voorheesville swimmers, finished with 132 points and Helderberg Valley, made up of Berne-Knox-Westerlo and Duanesburg swimmers, finished with 295 points. A relay team and two individual swimmers from Guilderville will compete at states as will Abigael O’Donnell from Helderberg Valley.

Tickets for the Guilderland Players’ fall play, “Arsenic and Old Lace” written by Joseph Kesselring, are $5 and are available at the door. The play is directed by high school teacher Andy Maycock, with Johnna Kollar as student director. The play runs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Nov.

On Saturday morning at Tri-City Fitness and Tennis Center, Guilderland's top two tennis singles players competed against the States best players at the NYSPHSAA competition in Latham.

The bleachers shook as the crowd cheered when the Guilderland girls’ field-hockey team won its their first-ever Class A sectional title Sunday.

An intense game with two overtimes ended Wednesday with the Guilderland field hockey team’s first-ever chance to play a sectional title game. The Dutch pulled out a 2-to-1 victory on Bethlehem’s home turf against the Eagles in the Class A sectional semifinal.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Dutch cross-country team traveled to the Crossings of Colonie to face Troy, Saratoga, and Colonie. The boys won against all three; 15 to 50 over Colonie, 25 to 30 over Saratoga, and beat Troy due to the Flying Horses having an incomplete team.

Girls on the Guilderland-Voorheesville swim team, who call themselves the Geese, traveled to Shaker to take on the Blue Bison last Friday afternoon. Shaker doesn’t have a diving board but the girls were still up to the task to beat the Blue Bison, 86 to 79.
