Some of the most interesting information in the story was the fact that 1,000 people had to be turned away at the door when Troy met Shenendehowa in the Class A final at Colonie High School in 1989. The next year, the rematch was moved to the Glens Falls Civic Center, the first time a Section II girls basketball championship game was not played at a high school site. Some 5,000 fans watched the rematch in Glens Falls.
The trio will be inducted into the Capital Region Basketball Hall of Fame together Sunday night in a ceremony at the Crown Plaza in Albany. This second year of the Hall of Fame is focusing on recognizing the girls game in the area, something the Troy High trio are proud to be a part of.
“I think it’s great that they are celebrating the women who changed the game for the area,” Holohan said. “I’m honored to be considered in that group.”
