Friday, Aug. 29, 2014
When a team wins an NCAA title like the Union hockey team did last season, there would appear to be no glaring weaknesses.
But there was one aspect of the Dutchmen’s game that head coach Rick Bennett didn’t like. He saw a weakness in the team’s ability to win faceoffs. Bennett hopes the newest member of his coaching staff will help improve that area.

Sowle, Spencer reunite for Glen Ridge show

Friday, Aug. 29, 2014
There are a number of reasons why a couple of old friends would get together on a Friday; maybe a round of golf and a couple of cold ones to kick off the holiday weekend.
But not when the old friends are as heavily involved in stock car racing as Mike Sowle and Tommy Spencer. Their objective tonight is to put on one of the best racing cards ever presented at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park.

Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014
Maria Sharapova’s serve and her groundstrokes were abandoning her. What she had was her conditioning.

When I pulled into the Schuylerville boat launch last Saturday, I wasn’t too happy with the fishing conditions. The water had risen considerably, the runoff had muddied the clarity, the current was moving faster than usual and the wind was blowing. Not exactly what I would call ideal fishing conditions. With me that day was 11-year-old Guan-Luca Ubillo of Schuylerville and his dad, Rodrigo, who were eager to hook up with some of the Hudson River’s bass, and the young angler didn’t waste any time in catching what he said was his biggest bass.

Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014
While 15-year-old American CiCi Bellis was in the process of stunning a Grand Slam finalist to become the youngest player to win a U.S. Open match since 1996, her father did his best to conceal his emotions courtside.
Like many a teen, CiCi has strict rules for Dad in public — even if his 1,208th-ranked daughter is pulling out a back-and-forth, 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 victory Tuesday over 12th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova in the first round at Flushing Meadows.

Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014
Ballston Spa product Chris Ohnsman is the kind of player who often falls through the cracks when recruited by a Division I football program.
But on a DIII football team like Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the 5-foot-10, 280-pound defensive lineman’s versatility is invaluable.
