The stats for yesterday’s games are still somewhat incomplete but below is what we’ve received so far. The blog will be updated as soon as more information comes in.
But what has come in shows Caroline Knapp having a big day for Scarsdale and Chandler Solimine a big day for Pelham.
Nothing new there. Those two players have been beyond solid all season long.
It seems like the field hockey season just got underway but next week is the seedings meeting for sectionals. Teams must win 40 percent of their games to qualify for post-season play. From there, rankings get a little complicated with strength of schedule (based on opponents’ records) playing a large role in where teams are seeded.
Between then and now, we’d like your thoughts on what the best teams are in the Westchester/Rockland/Putnam region.
Lakeland is the obvious number one. But is Mamaroneck or Rye number two? How about Scarsdale? And Ursuline? Mahopac? Pearl River? Nyack? John Jay-Cross River? Greeley?
Where would you rank them?
Some teams, like Fox Lane, got off to a slow start but have been coming on strong.
And then there’s Bronxville, which lost early and big to Scarsdale but then posted just-by-a-whisker losses to Mamaroneck and Rye.
Where do the Broncos rank?
And how does Pelham stack up?
What do you think? Forget about leagues and classes. What are the class teams of our Section 1 area? Even though they won’t play in the public high school sectionals, what about some of the private schools?
We’ll include some fan comments when previewing sectionals next week, which, of course, will be played by class.
Anyway, here is a look at some of what happened Wednesday and a look at what’s on tap for today.
