Leading off today:
Gloversville rallied with eight runs
in the bottom of the seventh inning and defeated Glens Falls 9-8 in a wild Foothills Council baseball game Saturday.
Winning pitcher Cam Stewart drove in the game-winning run with a single at Husky Field. Glens Falls had led 8-1 through four innings.
Anthony Ponticello was 2-for-4 with two doubles, three runs batted in and two runs scored for Gloversville. Glens Falls' Guy Donte went 3-for-4 with two RBIs.
Milestone: Oswego softball coach Mike McCrobie won his 400th game with a 7-2 triumph over Fulton. McCrobie, in his 25th season (he sat out 2014 after retiring from teaching), is 400-189.
West Genny prevails: Tyler Shoults completed his hat trick less than a minute into overtime to lift West Genesee to a 12-11 win over Jamesville-DeWitt in a battle of unbeaten boys lacrosse teams.
West Genesee is ranked No. 5 in the state in Class A and Jamesville-DeWitt is second in Class B.
Nick Cunningham also scored three times in the win, and David Procopio and Matt McDonald each scored twice for the Wildcats. Ryan Archer scored four goals to lead the J-D.
Tough start: Garden City will reach the midpoint of the season as a sub-.500 boys lacrosse team.
The longtime Long Island power slipped to 3-5 with Saturday's 8-7 loss to Ridgefield (Conn.) at Garden City. Ridgefield is the No. 1-ranked school in Connecticut.
"We're not used to being 3-5. That's not typical for Garden City," Trojans coach Steve Finnell told Newsday. "But it's not for lack of effort. We competed and we had some chances. We've got to clean up some mistakes -- like those missed ground balls and turnovers."
Garden City's other losses this spring have been to top New York contenders Syosset, Massapequa and Bronxville plus traditionally strong Massachusetts foe Duxbury.
Basketball departures: Utica Notre Dame boys basketball coach Mike Durr is retiring after six Section 3 championships and 335 wins in 21 seasons at his alma mater.
"I'll miss the kids I got to be around, and the camaraderie with my coaching staff," Durr, 55, told The Observer-Dispatch. "I tried to get the most out of kids. ... When you can do that, that's what was most gratifying."
Durr's daughter Emily will be a sophomore at Iowa State next fall. She was the NYSSWA Class B player of the year in 2014 after leading the Jugglers to a NYSPHSAA title.
• Bishop Grimes AD John Cifonelli said boys basketball coach Kevin Haven resigned after posting a 30-30 mark in three seasons.
