Empire State Games: Saturday roundup
Adirondack will play Central at 10:30 a.m. Sunday in the bronze medal match. The Adirondack team has never won a medal of any kind in Empire State Games play.
"I think that is the best we played as a team across the board," Adirondack coach Marylou Vosburgh said after the game on Saturday. "Certainly, it was the best defense we played in the tournament. I am very proud of what we they did today."
