Wildcats heading back to Glens Falls

Maple Hill's David Briggs moves the ball up the floor as Norwood-Norfolk's Jared Pollock follows in Saturday's Class C regional final at Hudson Valley Community College. Maple Hill scored 49 points in the second half en route to a 8-257 victory and a berth in the New York State Final Four. (All photos by Tom Killips - The Record).

Briggs was the only Maple Hill starter to not finish in double figures scoring, but he did all of the little things, especially when Trent Tibbits, Jaime Schultz and Sean Danaher were stuck on the bench with foul trouble through most of the second quarter.

The junior forward added six rebounds, four assists and two steals and a pair of blocks for the Wildcats (25-1).
Jaime Schultz (24) catches some crazy air on his way to the rim in Saturday's victory at HVCC. Schultz finished with 16 points and combined with Tibbits to score 18 of Maple Hill's 24 points in the third quarter.

Schultz, who is also a wonderful soccer and baseball player at Maple Hill thought that it was special to do this with the basketball program - certainly in head coach's Scott Hanrahan's first year at the helm and the first time the Wildcats had ever appeared in the regional round.

"In soccer it’s kind of a given that we have to win sectionals," Schultz said, "but winning sectionals for basketball is crazy. Who knew we would take it this far? To get to this part is amazing, to be a part of this team."

Maple Hill's Sean Danaher (r) battles for a rebound with Norwood-Norfolk's Justin Perry (l) during Saturday's game. Danaher scored 10 points and added eight rebounds and four blocks.

The Wildcats advance to face Section III champion Onondaga (17-9), which was the No. 9 seed in the Section III tournament. Onondaga (the alma mater of Mike Hart, who starred as running back at the University of Michigan and was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts) has won six consecutive upset postseason games to make it to the Final Four.

Here is a brief story from Syracuse about this Onondaga team.

Avon and Oyster Bay will be competing on the other side of the bracket, in a 1:30 p.m. game on Friday at the Civic Center.

Check back later in the week as I'll bring you plenty more on Maple Hill and link to as much background information on Onondaga that I can find.

The last Patroon Conference team to appear in a NYS championship game was the 1989-90 Rensselaer High team, which won the Class C crown.

The Hoosic Valley girls will be playing Stony Brook (18-4) at Hudson Valley Community College on Saturday at 2:15 p.m.

The Watervliet girls and CBA boys lost on Saturday, ending their hopes of advancing to the Final Four.
The Broadalbin-Perth boys and the Bethlehem and Mohonasen girls will represent Section II next weekend.
