A Proud Moment For My Alma Mater, Shenendehowa
I'm feeling it: Shenendehowa Pride.
I feel old saying I graduated in 2001, but whatever. Age ain't nothing but a number and it doesn't really matter in this case. All that matters is where I graduated from and that is Shenendehowa.
Monday night the Varsity baseball team was honored and the thing about this is, that in itself is not the shocking part. I believe that happens a lot. Shenendehowa's athletic department is incredibly talented. The shocking part is that this is the first time the Shenendehowa Varsity Baseball team has won a state championship title.
This is from the Times Union article regarding the ceremony and other amazing achievements so far in 2016:
Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett and Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, R-Glenville presented the baseball team with the resolutions during the beginning of Clifton Park’s town meeting.
Shenendehowa earned its state championship on June 11 against Webster-Schroeder High School by scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning in a walk-off victory.
This win capped an incredible year for the Shenendehowa Baseball Team as pitcher Ian Anderson was selected by the Atlanta Braves as the third overall selection in the Major League Baseball draft. Before the state championship game, Ian’s twin brother, Ben Anderson, was selected in the 26th round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.
