VOLLEYBALL ADVANCES TO FINAL FOUR, FOOTBALL TEAM FALLS
The post season ride continued for one of Haldane's squads, but ended for another on Friday, as the volleyball team defeated Shelter Island while the football team fell to Chester.
The Lady Blue Devils defeated Shelter Island 3-0 to advance to the Final Four next weekend in Glens Falls. Though Haldane won the match without dropping a game, Shelter Island kept each game nervously close before succcumbing to the Lady Blue Devils' overall better consistency. Haldane will participate in pool play on Saturday (11/19) with hopes of advancing to the state final the following day.
The football team's dream season came to crashing close as Chester's Saxon Smith rushed for 227 yards and 4 touchdowns in the Hambletonians’ 54-8 win. The Blue Devils trailed 40-0 at the half. The loss ends the Section 1 champs' season at 7-2.
