Delhi women fall at Sullivan, 46-45


Gilbertsville-Mount Upton graduate Tanya Barnes had 16 points and three assists, but SUNY Delhi lost a non-conference women’s basketball game 46-45, at Sullivan Community College on Tuesday.

Delhi had a final possession with three seconds left but failed to get a shot off.

Jackie Bailey contributed 10 points, eight rebounds and four assists for the Broncos (8-8), who will play host to Hudson Valley at 5 p.m. Thursday.


Two Dragons recognized

Oneonta State seniors Dan Scott and Eric Fortier were named to the all-East team for Division III men’s soccer by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Scott earned First Team Honors. Fortier, making his second appearance on the all-East team, was named to the Second Team.

Scott was the only player to start all 21 games for the Red Dragons this season. He was the SUNYAC Player of the Year and contributed a pair of assists.

Scott also earned honors as an ECAC Division III Metro/Upstate All-Star.

Over four years, Scott started 70 of the 82 games he played. He had three goals and assisted on 14.

“After graduating three of our four defenders from our 2011 Final Four squad, we asked Dan to move into the middle and assume a leadership role,” O-State coach Iain Byrne said in a media release by the school. “To be able to accomplish what he has and lead us to another SUNYAC championship shows why every single player on our team voted him as their team MVP for the season.”

Fortier, who was a Third Team All-American in 2011, was a first team all-SUNYAC selection after scoring six goals and contributing three assists.

Fortier started 64 of 73 games he played over four seasons. He scored 30 goals and had 13 assists. Seven of his goals decided games. His 73 points are tied for sixth and his 30 goals rank eighth in O-State history.
