'Burgh Clinches, No-hitter for Cohoes, Tuesday Roundup

Lansingburgh ended Mechanicville's reign atop the Colonial Council with a 7-0 win over Holy Names on Tuesday.
All five 'Burgh seniors picked up at least a hit and junior pitcher Erin Glikes did not allow a ball out of the infield all afternoon. It was her second straight shutout. I believe she has no-hit Schalmont and Tamarac this season.
Class A sectionals are set to begin next week with the pairings to be released in the near future.
Check out the full story (and pictures) in Wednesday's Record.

Holy Names' pitcher Lauren Walsh was impressive throughout, although the defense did not help in the six-run third inning. A freshman, Walsh has won at least ten games the past two seasons and is poised to have a solid future the next three seasons.
Holy Names will also compete in the class A sectionals.

Cohoes' Courtney Galuski threw a no-hitter as Cohoes beat Cobleskill-Richmondville 3-0 in the Colonial Council. Steph LaDue had the game's only hit, helping the Tigers improve to 10-4 in the Colonial with two games to play.

Columbia's Dana Rizzo allowed only one hit to Guilderland and the Blue Devils crusied to a 7-0 Suburban Council victory. Jenna Servidone hit two doubles for the Blue Devils.

Catholic Central got back on the winning track, Nikki Hedrick's three-hit complete game against Albany just what the Crusaders needed.

Spa Catholic wrapped up the WAC's North division with a doubleheader sweep of Galway. Betsey Towne and Kate Jasper are now ranked fourth and sixth in career wins at the school, respectively.

La Salle picked up an 8-2 on-league victory over Ravena behind Craig Ward's complete game four hitter.

Be sure to vote in the poll at the top of the page. Who's going to win this year's Uncle Sam Tournament? Will the Cadets continue to roll or will there be an upset at this year's edition. Troy, 'Burgh and CCHS are all capable of pulling it off.

Here's the schedule for the tournament:

Troy at Catholic Central, 10a.m.

Lansingburgh vs. La Salle 1p.m.

Championship Game, 4p.m.

In the Suburban, Mohansen clinched the White Division with a 6-2 win over Averill Park.

Columbia jumped all over Guilderland with a 16-4 victory. Matt Montross hit a two-run home run as Columbia used a seven run fifth to pull away from the Dutchmen.

Derek Zielinski helped Colonie secure a spot in the sectionals by throwing a four hitter and hitting a home run, double and two singles at the plate.

Lansingburgh dropped a one run game to Voorheesville in the Colonial Council. Nick Blow tripled and drove in four runs in the Blackbirds 9-8 win. Erik Kennedy drove in three for the Knights .
