vote. Instead, they were asked to approve rule changes and then to authorize the process to start over.
"We followed the rules to a T," Chip Corlew, a member of Glens Falls presenting committee, told The Post-Star. "Eight to three (over Binghamton) was a resounding vote of confidence by the state basketball committee. Wherever it goes from here, Glens Falls will be ready."
Glens Falls has hosted the tournament semifinals and finals since 1981.
Dan Hall, another member of the Glens Falls presenting committee, told the paper the $15,000 per year reduction in the proposed arena charge was the result of the Adirondack Civic Center Coalition's decision last month to end a contract with the concessions provider and hire its own concessions manager.
Based upon numbers being supplied to the Executive Committee in advance of its Oct. 22 meeting, the total cost of Glens Falls' three-year proposal dropped from $119,700 to $74,700. Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton submitted a three-year bid of $84,900.
A nice round number:
An 18-38 win over Rockville Center South Side at Bethpage State Park was the 100th in a row
in league competition for the North Shore girls cross country team.
"It was our goal coming into the season," senior Diana Vizza told Newsday. "Last year, we knew we were 89-0. This year was the year for the big 100. It's really cool. We're not just running for each other. We're running for the seven-year legacy. We're running for alumni. That's pretty special."
North Shore has won eight consecutive Section 8 titles and NYSPHSAA crowns in 2010 and '11.
Broyld in Division II: Ashton Broyld, the NYSSWA's Class AA player of the year in 2010 as a Rush-Henrietta senior quarterback, has resurfaced as a receiver at the University of West Georgia in the Division II Gulf South Conference.
Broyld, dismissed from the Syracuse University program late this summer, is in his final season of NCAA eligibility. He has three catches for 25 yards this fall.
A cursory check of biographies on the West Georgia website did not uncover any obvious connections between its coaches and Syracuse or Section 5. Former Orange defensive tackle Wayne Williams, a product of Abraham Lincoln High in Brooklyn, also transferred to West Georgia this summer.
