School notes: Lee sets record

Hudson High School senior Winston Lee smashed the Section II 100-meter dash record with his FAT 10.56 at Friday’s state meet qualifier at Knox Field in Johnstown.

Lee Ansaldo of Bethlehem ran an FAT (fully automatic timed) 10.73 in 1999 for the previous record.

When comparing hand-held and FAT times in the 100, .24 seconds are added to the hand-held. With that, Rodolfo Edwards’ 10.5 from 1991 would be a 10.74 by comparison.

Lee is the state 100 leader heading into the New York championships Friday and Saturday at Middletown High School.

Lee’s superb senior season has included 100 victories at the Section II Group 3 and Patroon Conference championships, the Eddy Meet in Schenectady, and the Maple Hill Invitational.


Senior Shane Fisher of state football champion Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake is headed to the University of New Haven.

Fisher, a 6-foot-2, 280-pound two-way tackle, helped the Spartans put together a 23-3 record the last two seasons. Burnt Hills reached a pair of state finals during that stretch, with a win over Sweet Home last season.

Fisher was named to the all-state Class A fourth team offense and earned a spot on the Daily Gazette All-Area second team following his senior season.

Fisher, a high honors student, will major in engineering.

Division II New Haven (Conn.), a member of the Northeast-10, put together a 10-1 record last season.


Colonie senior Samantha Blum has committed to Division III Keuka College to play both basketball and softball.

Over 50 Division II and III colleges expressed interest in the standout athlete and scholar, who will major in political science. Blum was also offered a full ride from Division I Alcorn State for softball.

Blum helped Colonie win Section II softball (2010) and basketball (2012) championships. She was recently named a Suburban Council softball first-team all-star.

The Scotia-Glenville Tartans Summer Basketball Camp from June 24-28 will have a fundamental skills session for grades 3-8 (9 a.m. to noon) and an advanced offensive skills session for grades 5-10 (1-3 p.m.).

The camp will be held at Scotia-Glenville High School, and members from its varsity team that won the Section II Class A championship will be helping out.
