Training camp report No. 16: Mechanicville High School
MECHANICVILLE -- Mechanicville High School's football team had a pretty good year in 2009, finishing the season with a 6-3 record. But in the tough Class C North Division, even a 5-2 regular season record wasn't good enough to qualify for the playoffs.
The Red Raiders will be right in the thick of things again in 2010.
