Storm leads to Delaware League co-champs


It is possible that the 2014 Delaware League finalists could meet in the Section Four Class D Tournaments, though.

Davenport’s boys (17-1) earned the No. 2 seed while Gilboa (14-3) is in the opposite Class D bracket as the fourth seed. That means the two can only meet again this season if both advance to the March 1 sectional championship game at Oneonta State.

The Class D boys tournament also features top-seeded Edmeston (17-0) and No. 3 seed Milford (16-1), who will be attempting to create an all Tri-Valley League final in sectionals. Edmeston and Milford will play for the T-V championship at 8 p.m. Saturday at Oneonta State.

The girls programs from Davenport (13-4) and South Kortright (17-0) are seeded sixth and second, respectively, for sectionals. To face each other again this season, they’ll both have to reach the semifinal round Feb. 26 at O-State.

Other top teams vying for a berth in the March 1 girls sectional championship at O-State are No. 1 seed Southern Cayuga (15-2) of the Interscholastic Athletic Conference and Tri-Valley League rivals Franklin (15-0), Schenevus (13-4) and Milford (13-4), who are seeded third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

Franklin and Milford will play for the Tri-Valley League title at 6 p.m. Saturday at O-State.

Cooperstown postponed

The winter storm also forced three postseason events involving Cooperstown programs to be rescheduled from Friday to Saturday.

The Section Three Class C Boys Swimming Championships will start at 11 a.m. Saturday at New Hartford, running concurrently with the Section Three Diving State Qualifiers at Mexico. Teams will have no days of rest in between the class championships and the Section Three Swimming State Qualifiers, which start at noon Sunday at Hamilton College.

At 2 p.m. Saturday, fifth-seeded Cooperstown’s girls (12-6) will host No. 12 Beaver River (7-9) in the first round of the Section Three Class C Tournament. The Carrier Dome in Syracuse will host the sectional final on Feb. 28.

Cooperstown’s boys also will play a sectional opener Saturday as the 13th-seeded Hawkeyes (9-8) will travel to fourth-seeded Little Falls (15-3) for an 8 p.m. game.

The Section Three Class C boys basketball championship is scheduled for March 1 at the Carrier Dome.
