Indians Deal Hill First Loss

Coxsackie-Athens 4, Maple Hill 3

CASTLETON — The Coxsackie-Athens varsity boys tennis team handed Maple Hill its first loss of the season Monday, coming away with a 4-3 victory in a rematch between two of the Patroon Conference’s top teams, according to an email from Rick Schneider of Central New York Tennis.

“This was a really big win for us after the vacation layoff. We were able to put together the four match wins we needed to beat a very good Maple Hill team who defeated us by the same score two weeks ago,” C-A coach Matt Seekamp said in an email. “Agnaldo da Silva played very well for us to win at No. 3 singles, and our depth helped win the overall match for us, getting match wins at No. 5 (singles) and No. 1 doubles. Hopefully today’s win will leave the team hungry for more as we face a tough schedule the rest of the way.”

The Indians (6-1) host Taconic Hills at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday while the Wildcats (5-1) look to bounce back with a home match against Chatham today at 4:15 p.m.

Results (C-A listed first): James Ferenczy lost to Greg Roe 4-6, 0-6; Gehrig Martin lost to Jeremy Busdiecker 2-6, 3-6; Agnaldo de Silva Jr. def. Lee Soja 6-4, 6-2; Brad Jourdin lost to Jimmy Shorey 0-6, 2-6; Josiah Ferenczy def. Gabe Dingman 6-0, 6-0; Doubles: Brian Ellis/Michael Barbato def. Peter Aitken/Jake Long 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (TB2-TB2); Chris Hanse/Trever Baldwin won by forfeit.

Fans of C-A Baseball

Hello All,

You can now follow the CA Varsity Baseball team this year as they look to take on the Patroon Conference and compete in Section 2.  Our Baseball team will be going digital this year through a FREE application called Gamechanger.  Gamechanger is a mobile app and website that provides scorekeeping, stats, LIVE GameStreams and recap stories of each and every game.  It is simple to sign up, and once you become a "FAN" of our team, you will be able to get alerts on start/end times of each game, final score, game recaps, and team messages.  You will be alerted on game time/date changes, special events such as our coaches vs. cancer game, and any playoff games.  The mobile app can be downloaded to your phone or the school ipad.

There are two options.  Option 1 (FREE and recommended): It keeps you updated with game scores, team records, Patroon Conference standings, game recaps, and all team messages.  Option 2, gets you everything from option 1, but for roughly $30 for the season, you get to view our game on LIVE Gamestreams and view team statistics.  

Going into my 10th season as the Head Varsity Coach, I'm looking to help keep the school community, and well as the Coxsackie-Athens community involved with the school sports teams I coach and love.  Take a minute to click the link below and sign up to be a "FAN" of our 2014 Coxsackie-Athens Baseball Varsity team.  We are shooting for a goal of having the most FANS in the Patroon Conference as well as trying to get break the 50 Fan mark by weeks end.

This prolonged winter has kept us from getting on a baseball field to date, but our spirits are high and look to do great things this year.  Our season officially starts today in Taconic Hills.  So please take a second, sign up, and support our school team.  Thank you.

Playing with poise and complete control on the national stage, the University at Albany men’s basketball team gave the No. 1 team in the nation a noble run Thursday evening in the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament in Orlando’s Amway Center. After holding the lead until the 7:02 mark in the first half, the Great Danes ultimately fell to the Florida Gators by a score of 67-55. Albany's season comes to an end with a final record of 19-15. Coach Will Brown said "I am very proud of my team." This was Albany's second consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament. Playing in the final game of their careers, seniors DJ Evans, Gary Johnson, and John Puk led UAlbany in the scoring column with double-digit efforts. Evans logged a game-high 21 points, going 6-for-12 from the field, 2-for-5 from three, and 7-for-8 from the free throw line, while also grabbing a team-best seven rebounds. Johnson contributed 13 points and three boards, while Puk capped his tenure with 10 points, five rebounds, and two assists. The Danes lead 21-18 with 8:51 left in the first quarter. The end of the game was a battle of three point shots. Albany played an amazing game, coming with in 12 points of the top ranked national team.-Via ualbanysports.com

    Pi Day!!!!!

    Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

    Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

    St. Patty's Day

    Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patric's Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green. St. Patrick was not born in Ireland, he wrote he was born in a village callen Bannavem Taberniae it is thought to be in england Scotland or wales. At age 16 he was captured by Irish raiders and was forced to herd sheep. As the story goes he heard a voice tell him to leave Ireland, he walked 200 miles to the coast then sailed back home. He then had an Angel tell him to return as a missionary, years later he became a priest. He traveled Ireland spreading Christianity to the majorly Pagan population. His death was March 17, 461 and his legend spread making him a symbol of Christian faith and Irish pride. St Patrick was associated with blue origionally. The united Irish uprising associated St. Patrick's clover with the color of their uniform, making that the iconic St. Patric's day color.- Article source History.com Written by, Ben Reda

    CA Has Undefeated Season

    Coxsackie-Athens 5, Catskill 0

    CATSKILL — The Coxsackie-Athens varsity bowling team completed its Patroon Conference season without losing a single point, finishing off the year with a 5-0 sweep of Catskill at the Catskill HoeBowl Lanes on Tuesday. The Indians won the Patroon with a perfect 12-0, 60-0 record.

    “We couldn’t be happier with our performance today, especially that we were able to maintain our perfect season,” C-A coach Vicky Kardas said in an email. “We are especially proud to end our season knowing that every player, subs included, contributed to our final record.”

    The Indians defeated Catskill by a total pinfall of 3,280-2,810. Mike Taber led C-A with a 227 high game and a 634 triple while Elijah Chewens had a 244-595 and Miranda Hartman tossed a 215-576. Anthony Multari added a 203 single.

    “I’d like to congratulate Coxsackie-Athens on the season they had. They are a very strong team and don’t really have any weaknesses,” Cats coach Len Reyngoudt said.

    For Catskill, Jamie Olthoff rolled a 210-587, Jacob Crews finished with a 186-525 and Cassandra Abel had a 202 single. The Cats finished in second place in the Patroon with a 10-2, 47-13 record.

    “I’m really proud of the way my team bowled this year. We had a lot of improvements and they got better as the year went on,” Reyngoudt said. “I’ll take second place.”

    Next up for the Indians and Cats is the Section II, Class C championships at Boulevard Bowl in Schenectady on Tuesday beginning at 9:30 a.m.

    From Worst To First

    Congratulations to Aaron Boudreau on his marvelous turnaround of the Coxsackie boys program. The Indians are in first place for the first time in a generation after some extremely lean years under the previous regime and only 2-3 sectional appearances in the 80's, 90's and 2000's. Boudreau has worked well with this group and despite there loss to Rensselaer on Friday, this team is in position to challenge down the stretch and get a potential home game in sectionals for the first time in a long, long time. The last time the Indians hosted a playoff game was in 1999 when their scorer Scott Sitzer and point guard Rob Leonardo, who went on to Hobart, led the team to Glens Falls Civic Center against George Mardigans Watervliet Cannoneers.  Hats off to the kids and coaching staff for the great turnaround this year. Fifteen years is a long drought and a few more wins and you may get another run.

    C-A wins tournament and stays undefeated

     

    CATSKILL — The Coxsackie-Athens Indians took first place at the George Cotich Memorial Patroon Conference Annual Tournament held at Catskill HoeBowl Tuesday.

    The tournament consisted of seven varsity bowling teams from Cairo-Durham, Catskill, Chatham, C-A, Hudson, Rensselaer and Taconic Hills. The Chatham Panthers finished second, while the Catskill Cats took third.

    C-A’s Mike had a high three-game score of 606, while Chatham’s Chad Sutliff bowled a second-best total of 582. Taber also had the highest individual game, with a score of 268. C-A’s Miranda Hartmann bowled a high individual game of 216 and Chatham’s Ricky DeGroff scored an individual high of 215.

    C-A coach Vicky Kardas said that the teams struggled with the oil conditions of the lanes.

    “We definitely did not start well,” she said. “We struggled with the oil conditions, but other teams did as well. The scores were not impressive across the board. The difference was that we were able to adjust. Our totals went up each game.”

    Kardas was happy to see Taber play his best individual game in a big tournament.

    Varsity Boys First Win in Over 3 Years!

    It only took one game for the Coxsackie-Athens boys varsity basketball team to top last season’s win total. The Indians pulled away from Rensselaer in the second half of their Patroon Conference season and home opener to come out with a 53-40 victory Friday night.

    “It was a good defensive game by Coxsackie and they controlled most of the game,” first-year C-A coach Aaron Boudrea said.

    Tristan Valencia paced the offense for the Indians, pouring in a game-high 20 points, while Charles Porter — who connected twice from 3-point range — added 12. But it was C-A’s full-court pressure defense that made the difference.

    “We ran the press the whole game and it just forced them to take more time to get up and down the court. It forced a lot of turnovers and we were able to score a lot of points off of those turnovers,” Boudrea said.

    LaVontae Armwood finished with 14 points to lead the Rams.

    C-A (1-0) hosts Cairo-Durham on Wednesday at 7 p.m. while Rensselaer (1-1) plays at C-D on Friday at 7 p.m.

    REN (40): T. Oliver 1-2-2-4; J. Forgea 2-2-5-7 (1); L. Armwood 6-2-2-14; M. Gibson 2-0-4; W. Brooking 2-0-5 (1); M. Jones 0-6-8-6; Totals: 13-12-17-40 (2).

    A Call to Arms: Fueling the World With Education

    C-A Circuit Editor-in-Chief

    World Teachers’ Day was October 4th, and was celebrated far and wide in many

    Countries. What did you do to celebrate?

    If you said nothing, you’re in the same boat as many other Americans. Every year, World

    Teacher’s Day is a huge celebration for educators all over the world. Schools in many countries even have the day off to have parties in gratitude to teachers. On World Teachers’ day this year,

    our own Miss Bryan went to a United Nations forum about education. Teachers from countries of

    all kinds showed up, including but not limited to, Uganda, Bangladesh, England, Canada, and

    Japan. She was one of many representatives chosen to ask questions and give suggestions

    About how to reform education in countries that need public schooling.

    “Only 34% of the world’s children go to school,” she said, “I think that the statistics about

    How few kids are educated, and also the statistics of money spent around the world on military

    Operations versus education are the things that made me really sit up and take notice.”

    In the United States, it is often taken for granted that we have a free education system

    that anyone can utilize. Because of this, many people remain ignorant about how improvements

    Could be made in education, both in other countries and our own. “It could be so much different

    and it would take such little effort,” she commented in regard to reforms trying to be made in

    Education.

    The United States used to have one of the best education systems for a developed

    Country. Although we still have great teachers, that reputation has been slowly slipping. “Of

    Course the other side of it is, it’s really hard being a teacher.” Because of this, a new wave of

    Educators have emerged, declaring that we must find an education system that all countries can

    Use, which will also be fair and available to all children. The UN hopes that by 2015, every

    Country will have established an education plan that will be open to all children, regardless of

    gender, race, religion, or other variables.

    How does this all tie back into World Teachers’ Day? “None of the American teachers

    who were there (at the forum) had heard about the International Teachers day. It says a lot about

    how teachers are perceived in the US.”

    This brings up a good point. How can we expect people to be excited enough about

    education to make the changes necessary, when we don’t even give due credit to the people

    who give us the basis for mental growth? When we take for granted that our teachers will always

    be there?

    Miss Bryan herself has done much work in the area of education reform in the past few

    years. In 2010, she worked with Robert Kennedy’s daughter to write a school curriculum about

    human rights. In the same year, she was a member of a Board of Regents committee. In 2011,

    she went to another UN forum, where she spoke via satellite to teachers all over the world. She’s

    Even been awarded as an Educator of Excellence by the Nobel family.

    Because of the great strides taken to improve our system, and other education systems

    around the world, we shouldn’t be pessimistic. “It was all around the world, the teachers leading

    the forum were so passionate and engaged in what they and their students were doing.”

    If we can inspire the same enthusiasm about education from those in positions of power,

    our country could achieve many things. “The whole idea of the World of Difference club is to

    raise awareness, particularly about education.”

    With regard to all the work she’s done, Miss Bryan had one thing to say:

    “None of this would have been possible without my unbelievably bright and committed students.

    All my students are always with me in my pocket, it feels like we’ve done this all together.”

    400 Pound Highschool running back

    Tony Picard is 6-foot-4 and weighs 400 pounds. And he’s a running back. In high school.

    Such a giant football player might typically play a position like defensive tackle, but Picard’s surprising agility and quickness led his coaches at White Swan High School — in a rural area southwest of Yakima, Wash. — to try him in the backfield. “Big Tone,” as his teammates call him, started out as a lineman and does still play some nose tackle, according to Indian Country Today, an American Indian publication.

    But he has made his biggest mark on his team as a fullback and a ball-carrier. After all, it’s nearly impossible to bring him down; he just plows through his opponents, either blocking for a smaller rusher or just taking the ball himself.

    Picard ran for more than 500 yards and eight touchdowns for White Swan this year, helping his Cougars to a 9-1 regular-season record and a trip to the state tournament. But White Swan lost 22-14 in the opening round to Colfax High School.

    Nevertheless, despite being somewhat oversize for even the NFL, Picard’s athleticism has piqued the interest of some college football teams, according to reports.

    “Chances are he’ll be recruited as a lineman, but there’s always a chance that he’ll get his chance to carry the ball on those short touchdown runs,” White Swan coach Andrew Bush told Indian Country Today. “It’s tough to stop 400 pounds!”

    Picard, who is part Umatilla-Nez Perce Indian and part Sioux Indian, also plays center for the White Swan basketball team. He gets a lot of stares when he takes the field or court, and he doesn’t necessarily like the notoriety, but he wants to continue playing ball in college, he told the New York Post.

    “I don’t really care much about the attention,” he told the Post. “There is a lot of people that kind of dislike (my running the ball), disagree, agree. I’m just playing because I love the sport. I could care less what people think.”

    Could Picard be the next William “The Refrigerator” Perry?

    Cross Country Has Hard Loss at Sectionals

    A day that started out with high winds and heavy rain did not dampen the excitement of sectionals this past Friday when much of the cross country team set personal records in the 3.1 mile event.

     

    In the girls’ race the first C-A runner across the finish line was Tara Josberger in a time of 21:28. Tara was followed by Katrina Josberger, Stephanie Chase, Grace Stanton, Rachel Knaust, Ali Stanton, Anna Tailleur, and Amanda Gerber.

     

    Tara and Katrina also made the 2013 Patroon Conference All-Star team by a vote of all the coaches in the conference.

     

    Seventh grader Kareel Slager continues to wow with his time of 20:39 at a 6:39 pace coming in first for CA. Kareel was followed by Trever Baldwin, Yuri Simmons, freshmen Philip Horsman and Ben Pacuk, as well as Patrick Ravida, Josiah Ferenczy, Chris Hanse, and Thomas Multari completing the team.

     

    Thank you C-A cross country for a great season



     
     



    Varsity Boys Soccer Great Game Holding Crane by1

    After Tuesday's very chilly day, it was relief today to find some sun and pleasant conditions at Queensbury in the Class "B" semi-final. Ichabod Crane has had a sensational two year run, but today had their hands full with Coxsackie-Athens, Patroon Conference Champions, who came in full of fight and ready to contend.

    Coxsackie-Athens won a corner kick very early in the contest and served notice that this was going to be a game. Ichabod outshot Coxsackie in the first half 6-3, but the defense of C-A held strong as has been their standard all fall. Keeper Agnaldo Junior was solid in the nets for C-A.

    In the second half, the Riders came out with much more intensity and focus. They started controlling the possession more and created more quality opportunities. Again, keeper Junior was terrific, snuffing out 1 v 1 breakaways from Seth Scarano, Heriberto Gomez,Diego Lezama, and Junior Martinez. It began to look as if the two sides might need overtime to decide this battle. 

    Midway through the second half, Alex Niemann, being held out of the match due to an injury, jogged onto the pitch, evoking memories of Willis Reed, and immediately made an impact, winning the ball in the midfield, and sending Scarano into the attacking third. There was a deflection and the ball fell back to Scarano, relatively unmarked at the top of the box. Scarano, is not the player any team wants unmarked. With the keeper charging him, Scarano calmly slipped it past him for what would be the game winner. 

    Coxsackie-Athens reached down deep and would not quit. Pushing forward, they created three quality attempts on goal, two coming off free kicks just outside the box. Ichabod's keeper Pierce Reilly made a highlight save diving to his right and just getting his hands on the ball to prevent the game tying goal. 

    Ichabod finished play with an advantage in time of possession and a slight edge in both shots and corners, but this was a game and not an easy way to punch a ticket to Saturday's final.

    It was a game in which both teams should be proud of their play and determination. Coxsackie-Athens opened some eyes today and showed they are worthy of playing in such a match, having made it to the semis three of the past four years. -Via http://www.capitalregionsoccer.com

After a hard faught battle the game was down to the final minutes and August Gerrain drew a foul in the box and was awarded a penalty kick. He sunk it in the bottom left corner for the win. The Coxsackie Indians advance to the semifinals against Ichabod Crane this Wednesday at 3 in Queensberry.

    The Class of 2014 had their senior game, the last home game of the season yesterday. The Indians played Hudson  in a physically demanding match. The game began with Hudson kicking off but the Indians quickly took posession of the ball and controlled the game. A goal was scored by Matt McDonald from a cross by August Gerrain. That goal allowed the boys to begin playing comfortably which caused a few goal scares. The second half the boys recieved a motivational speach from the coach causing them to play the second half more aggressive. Both teams faught hard but the magnificent Indians wont the match 1-0. -Written by Ben Reda

The game became physical quickly and Greenville scored the middle of the first half. Tward the end of the half Nick Meredeth was injured and could not play the rest of the match.

    C-A Football wins Greene County Cup

    Coxsackie-Athens 35, Cairo-Durham 8

    COXSACKIE-ATHENS – The Greene County Cup was awarded to the winner of last Saturday’s football game between Coxsackie-Athens and Cairo-Durham. The event was rekindled in 2009 in Cairo and continues the rivalry between the only two remaining Greene County teams with football programs.

    Last year’s contest was held at the junior varsity level due to the Mustangs not having a varsity team. Cairo-Durham won that contest and brought the coveted cup with them to Coxsackie to face the host Indians for rights to hold it for the next year. Since its reintroduction, Cairo-Durham is up 2-1 on the Indians. C-A evened the score by winning 35-8 and will hold the Cup in Coxsackie until next year. The win also put C-A at 2-2 on the year, which is the first time they’ve been .500 since 2006.

    C-A jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead after two first quarter scores. The first came at 8:59 off a QB keeper by quarterback Zach Girvin, who ended the day with two rushing touchdowns and two passing touchdowns. The kick by James Squier was wide left, which kept it 6-0. The second came at 5:22 off a reverse to P.J. Neal, who scored his first of two touchdowns on the day. Girvin pushed it across for the extra two, which made it 14-0.

    The Mustangs kept themselves in the game following a touchdown by senior wideout Mitchell Kazanjian from quarterback George Pooters, Jr. The 85-yard pass play was finished off by a two-point conversion run from Pooters, which made it 14-8 with 3:05 left in the first quarter.

    C-A ended up punting on their next possession despite a pass to tight end Jake Westfall whose stretch came up a yard short of the first down on 3rd and 11. The quarter burned off just before the punt. Cairo-Durham had the ball and moved the chains following a great play by Pooters where he optioned right and dove four yards in the air to get the ball past the first down marker. After a false start call, the Mustangs were looking at 1st and 15 and called a pass play. The pass was intended for Kazanjian but was bit short and a dive in front of him by Sam Palmateer resulted in C-A’s first of two interceptions on the day.

    The Indians went down field and moved the chains twice before Girvin scored his second of the day on a keeper run for a four-yard TD. The point after kick failed, which left it a 20-8 ballgame with 7:47 left in the half.

    On C-D’s next possession, they had a remarkable opening play on a pass from Pooters to Kazanjian again which bounced off the shoulder pads and landed in the outstretched hands of Cairo-Durham’s #18 for a 27-yard pickup. Then, with 3rd and 4 Kazanjian took an end around play and was tackled in the backfield hard by C-A’s Jadyn Coutte and Zach Girvin. The play was stopped as Kazanjian lay on the ground injured. A 15-minute delay ensued as medical personnel attended to the injured Mustang. After things got started again with it 4th and 9, a false start was called on C-D moving them backward and forced a 4th and 14. A deep pass play intended for number 83 (both 18 and 83 were not on the program roster). The pass was picked off by C-A’s eighth grade cornerback Mike Constantino as the ball bounced off the receiver’s hands. It was brought back to the 10-yard line before Constantino was tackled. C-D called a time out, seeing another lost opportunity unfold with 4:22 left in the half.

    The Mustangs did end the half on a positive as Coxsackie-Athens was on the 3 yard line with it 2nd and goal but an option flip by Girvin to Sam Palmateer was stopped at the corner just outside the goal line. It would stay 20-8 at the break and still within reach of Cairo-Durham.

    During the second half, J.P. Hulslander’s defense was stifling as they continued to rush the quarterback and reach the ball carriers in the backfield. On the C-D opening drive of the third quarter, penalties and frustration-led unsportsmanlike conduct flags corralled the Mustangs backward deep in their own territory and cost them their coach George Pooters, Sr. for the rest of the game as he was ejected.

    With it now 3rd and 43, Coutte and Chris Goss broke through the offensive line and chased down alternate QB Travis Herrick in the end zone for a sack and a safety. The two point score made it 22-8 and gave the ball back to Coxsackie-Athens.

    The teams exchanged possessions until Girvin hooked up with sophomore wideout James Squier for a 28-yd TD. Squier sent his extra kick through to make it a 29-8 game at that point with 2:20 remaining in the quarter.

    At the end of the third, C-A received a punt from Cairo-Durham and had the ball on their own 40 yard line, which was where they would begin the fourth.

    On C-A’s first play of their possession and the quarter, Girvin connected with P.J. Neal for a 60 yard TD. The extra kick was wide right, leaving the score 35-8. That’s how it would the scoreboard would stay as the Indians took back the Cup to place it back in the high school trophy case for the next year.

    “It was extremely competitive. It was a great game. The score may not have shown it but Coach Pooters has to be extremely proud of his boys. They come out every week no matter what the score and play hard. Our boys do the same and it’s a great rivalry and I hope it continues,” Hulslander said after the game, holding the Cup presented to him by Coxsackie-Athens District Superintendent Randy Squier.

    On the heated rivalry between the schools and the physical play and the injuries and penalties that resulted in Pooters’ ejection, he said, “We are just trying to get better every week just like last year. It’s the first time we’re .500 since 2006. It’s good for the program and good for the community. Of course it’s going to be a heated rivalry because were the only two teams in Greene County. Plus you throw the Cup in there and these guys grew up playing baseball and football and everything together. I’m just proud of my boys. Our focus this week was trying to play mistake-free football and for the most part we did that—couple of stupid penalties but we’re going to continue to work for next week against Watervliet and look toward that playoff berth. They’ll be jacked up to play for the homecoming no matter on their field or another field. Last year we got rolled on but it’s a different year and different group of guys. I am just happy to go in there 2-2. It’s a lot better than 0-for and I think we’re going to make some noise next week.”

    For Coxsackie-Athens, Neal had two touchdowns. Girvin also had two touchdowns. Both Sam Palmateer and Mike Constantino had interceptions. The Indians defense was the story as they recorded two picks and 10 tackles in the backfield for big losses including 5 sacks—one by freshman defensive end Jadyn Coutte and junior d-back Chris Goss (1 ½) in the end zone, which resulted in a safety.

    C-A is 2-1 in the C-South now and 2-2 overall heading into this Saturday’s game at Watervliet (1-2, 2-2) for their homecoming. But since their field is under construction, the game will be played on the turf at Lansingburgh High at 4 p.m. Mustang statistics were not available for publication.

    Cairo-Durham (0-4) continues their four-game stint on the road as they travel to Mechanicville (C-North) for a non-divisional game under the lights this Friday at 7 p.m.
