Rick Carpiniello's world of sports

Dark Saturday, darker Sunday


Briarcliff’s girls won the state Class B championship, and Haldane goes for the Class C title tomorrow in Troy.

Glens Falls will be dark for boys basketball teams from Section 1 tomorrow.

For the first time since 2003, Section 1 won’t have multiple boys champions. It won’t have any.

And for only the second time since 1992, Section 1 won’t have a single team in a boys championship game.

Peekskill had been to Glens Falls seven times, and this is the only time it failed to reach the final. It won five previous titles, and lost a championship game to the Amityville dynasty, which, with Peekskill’s loss today remains the only team to win four straight (2000-03).

Mount Vernon has lost semifinals as recently as 2001 and 2002, in a still remarkable run of seven final four appearances in the last eight years. It also lost a championship game in 2003.
