— Shenendehowa officials expect to have a quick resolution into the investigation of suspended boys’ varsity lacrosse coach Chuck Hol­ohan.

Holohan, who was named head coach in 2007, following the retirement of Mark McQuade, was suspended indefinitely Monday after allegations of verbal abuse against his players were revealed.

“This will be resolved, hopefully, by the end of business Friday, or by Saturday, at the latest,” said Shenendehowa athletic director Chris Culnan Thursday.

Assistant coach Jason Gifford has been serving as acting head coach in Holohan’s absence.

According to Culnan, the invest­igation concerns comments made to players during practice sessions.

“While there are rumors out there concerning physical abuse, I can tell you in no uncertain terms that there are no issues of physical abuse to any Shenendehowa stud­ent/athletes,” Culnan said.

The Plainsmen improved to 1-1 Thursday, beating Saratoga Springs, 17-7, behind five goals from D.J. Edick and four goals and four assists from Pat Coll.

Noah Arciero and Evan Stock both had two goals for Saratoga.

Brad Johnston’s four goals powered Guilderland past Bethlehem, 12-3. Jake Smith and Jeff Easley both added a pair of goals for the Dutchmen.

Nick Dodd scored three goals, and Aiden Snyder and Andrew Leahey shared a shutout as Shaker blanked Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, 9-0.

Kwame Jarvis had four goals, and James Schnepf made 11 saves as Schenectady beat Schuylerville, 8-6, in a non-leaguer for its first win of the spring.

Zach Pierce and Luke Pumiglia split the Schuylerville goals.

Ben Willows fired in six goals, and Braden Kietzman added four as Queensbury got past Johnstown, 18-2, in the Foothills Council.

Joel Braun (four goals), Thomas Nealon (four goals) and Tyler Littlejohn (three goals) accounted for all but one of Troy’s goals in a 12-6 win over Notre Dame of Utica.
