Gaelic Knights earn rematch with Scotia-Glenville Saturday
Bishop Ludden's boys basketball team found its return to the state Class A playoffs to be a smooth one, at least at the outset. The Gaelic Knights put four players in double figures as it handled Massena, 71-50, Wednesday night at Cicero-North Syracuse High School to set up a highly-anticipated regional final against unbeaten, state no. 1-ranked Scotia-Glenville this Saturday at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy.
As controversies over Common Core and mandated standardized tests become more and more prevalent, many parents are choosing a new option in educating their children: homeschooling. Once the sole province of the very religious, homeschooling is becoming more popular every day, with a growth rate of 7 to 15 percent per year. Nationwide, about 2 million children learn at home instead of in a brick-and-mortar school, up from about 1 million in 2003. According to the U.S. Department of Education, about 88 percent of U.S. homeschool parents express concern about the school environment, citing drugs, negative peer pressure and general safety.
Hot shooting of Hawk, Hackett spark conquest of J-D
Seeing a 3-point shot fall early in the game is nice. Seeing a flurry of them go through the net can prove quite disheartening to an opponent - especially when the guys taking the shots are not known for outside proficiency. That's what the Bishop Ludden boys basketball team did to Jamesville-DeWitt in Saturday's Section III Class A final at the Carrier Dome, Kyle Hawk and Ben Hackett unleashing an outside barrage that no one anticipated and riding it all the way to an impressive 76-49 victory over Jamesville-DeWitt for its third consecutive sectional championship.

Kinship caregivers get support through statewide program, private pro bono clinic
When parents can no longer take care of their children, what happens next? Many times, relatives will step in, typically grandparents, to raise their son or daughter’s family. The reasons for kinship care are multiple and rarely, if ever, positive.
The 2014 DeVesty-Williams Scholarship will be awarded in early May by members of the Syracuse Press Club at its annual awards banquet.

A student’s college residence is not considered a permanent residence. All students who fit the above criteria are encouraged to apply.

West Genny again denies RFA with championship at stake
Make that seven consecutive Section III Division I championships for the West Genesee ice hockey team, and four consecutive titles won at the expense of Rome Free Academy. The Wildcats' latest conquest of the Black Knights, a 3-1 victory in Saturday's sectional final at Utica Memorial Auditorium, included a crucial second-period scoring outburst and a defense that, once again, protected a lead once it was attained.

West Genny's Heggelke gets Class AA 126-pound crown
Tough competition everywhere would await the Marcellus wrestling team as it traveled to Vernon-Verona-Sherrill for Saturday’s Section III Class B championships. But Zach Ruggles was up to it, as his victory in the 120-pound division, combined with a near-victory for Ben Hood at 113 pounds, gave Mustangs fans plenty to smile about, even though it only finished ninth in a 12-team field.
Lakers, Potsdam play to 2-2, four-overtime tie
It only figured for the Skaneateles girls ice hockey team that its quest to win the Upstate New York championship would involve multiple overtimes. That was, after all, the exact same scenario that had unfolded in 2012 and 2013 for the Lakers, who both times lost double-OT decisions to Alexandria Bay that kept them from advancing beyond the Section III tournament.
