Leading off today:
Sections 1 and 3 each advanced both their representatives to the NYSPHSAA boys hockey final fours by winning quarterfinals Saturday.
In Division I, Mamaroneck defeated Massena 5-1 and West Genesee eliminated Ithaca 6-2, setting up semifinals against Pittsford and West Genesee, respectively.
In Division II, red-hot Pelham defeated Batavia Notre Dame 4-2 to set up a semifinal with defending champion Skaneateles, a 5-0 winner over Victor at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Skaneateles got two second-period goals from Ray Falso and a shutout from goaltender Bennett Morse, who lowered his goals-against average to 1.20 with his second straight whitewash. Falso leads the Lakers with 32 goals and 62 points this season.
Pelham hadn't been able to get beyond the quarterfinals the past two seasons, but the Pelicans paved the way for a trip to Buffalo by pumping in three first-period goals, including a pair from defenseman Gib Smith.
"We wanted this one," Smith told The Journal News. "It feels great, but we're not done yet."
Goalie A.J. Gugliara finished with 22 saves, including five during a four-man penalty kill in the third period after a boarding call.
In Division I, Patrick McDonald scored a hat-trick to highlight the West Genesee win. McDonald had just six goals heading into the game.
More hockey: Jeremy Ienco's goal at 4:25 of overtime lifted St. Joe's to a 2-1 win over St. Anthony's just moments after the Friars thought they had captured the CHSAA title.
St. Anthony's captain Tyler Barrow appeared to have scored off a feed from Patrick Cozzi only to have the goal waved off because the net had been dislodged.
State bowling tournament: Seniors Nick Caruana and Anthony Naujokas rolled six-game blocks of 1,384 and 1,325, respectively, to top all competitors and lead Sachem's combined district team to the NYSPHSAA boys bowling championship at Airport Lanes in Cheektowaga.
The Flaming Arrows (6,166) and Lansingburgh (5,921) easily ran away from the rest of the field.
Caruana, the 2014 individual champ from Sachem East, rolled a 263 in his final game of the day, and Naujokas, of Sachem North, put down a 254 in the same game.
"It's just a good way to go out," Naujokas told Newsday. "I think Sachem East alone had a good chance of winning counties, and when we combined we knew we were going to have a really good team."
Bobby Ramsey of Sachem was seventh, giving the winners three competitors in the top 10.
In the girls competition, Columbia (5,563) fought off 2014 winner East Islip (5,507) and Union-Endicott (5,463) for the team championship. Columbia's Rachel Steele was the top individual with a 1,243 pinfall for six games.
Carly Licht of Bethpage rolled a 279 game to finish her day in second place at 1,239.
Sachem's boys won NYSPHSAA championships in 1996, '97 and 2000 before the district split into two schools. The Columbia girls previously triumphed in 2001.
Boys swimming: St. Anthony's won its first Federation team championship and Half Hollow Hills earned its first NYSPHSAA title at the state championship meet at Erie Community College.
