When did FM drop down to Class B? This year? They should just go ahead and give them the Section 3 crown for class B.

The classifications in this sport are insane. It's almost like Section 3 said - let's see how we can make sure we try to get as many state championships as we can. FM in a class below Clinton?

You think that's bad. Out here in Section 2 there is a league for lacrosse called the Foothills Conference. It consists of 2 class B schools, 3 class C schools and 1 class D school. Imagine Tully competing against FM to win a conference title? It's absurd. Also, our Albany CBA is Class C enrollment and they play up, not sure if A or B, but Syracuse CBA is the opposite..

Anyhow, here are the New York State Classifications for the 2018/19 school year.

CBA - Albany plays in A or AA (football, basketball, etc) for all sports.

The Foothills doesn't exist in other sports? Like Johntown, Gloversville, Queensbury etc? That whole league has vanished?

Not at all, but it depends on the sport. So the basketball Foothills conference includes the teams above. But the foothills lacrosse league does not.

And football is completely different. For football SGF plays in A the Grasso Division while Glens Falls plays in the class B North Division.

the section 2 leagues and divisions are all whacky.

The main league in Sect 2 for lax is the Suburban - the other leagues are a little weaker but still have some good teams. All the Class A lacrosse teams in Sect 2 are in the Suburban Council.

In B - the top 4 seeded teams are Ballston Spa, Burnt Hills, Queensbury and Columbia (all except Queensbury are in the Suburban).

The only C in the Suburban is Averill Park. The Foothills and the Wasaren comprise all the remaining C and D schools (and Queensbury). Plus Independant LaSalle which moved down to C and is the 1 seed. .

Forgot about them. They opted out of Sectionals.
The 0-18 record might have had something to do with it ? Them, Lansingburgh and Schennectady-Troy are train wrecks but at least they're trying.

FM falls 9 students short of being class A. Clinton combined with 5 other very small school districts for boys lax which put them in class A based upon number of students.

FM is really good at B but down state class B is loaded with good teams - Garden City, Manhasset, Yorktown, John Jay to name a few. Brighton or Victor might have something to say.

Class A for lax. Section 2's problem is depth. There is 1 really good school, 4 or 5 good ones, 4 or 5 ok ones and then a bunch of really bad teams. Plus, suburban council only allows 2 non conference games.

How has West Genny looked this year with the new staff?
Eh up and down. I love watching local hs lax so I’ve seen them at least a handful of times (along w bville, Jd, fm ect). They can be really bad, but the next game they’ll look great. Very top heavy, w Rosa, Sheehan, and 2 other attackmen leading the offense, and staudt holds down the D. Personally I’d take Bville Friday (even though they looked quite subpar tonight), but if Genny plays 4 good quarters then anything can happen in hs. Was at the game today, and Desko was actually there.
Also, what is going on w Marcellus?? A complete 360 from the past few years making it to the section chip this yr

3 points.

- I saw Desko also , I assume he was there to watch Rosa, but he did stay for the first half of CNS v B'ville ( looked like he said meh and then left as it was a very sloppy game in which no one impressed)

- Bville will beat Genny... CNS played a zone which messed with their heads for 75% of the game.

- What happened to Marcellus? Their coach left and is now an "assistant" coach for CNS... and he is TERRIBLE. he was basically leading the show for CNS this year. You can connect those dots...

CNS is always terrible so nothing new there. I agree that Bville should knock off WG but I have learned to never discount WG in sectionals.
