School notes: Kane commits
Liam Kane, who led Stillwater’s varsity in rushing yards and touchdowns as a junior and senior, will continue his football career at Hartwick College.
Kane was twice named a Section II Class C first-team all-star, and made the all-state honorable mention list following his senior season. Kane was also named one of the area’s top scholar-athletes by the Capital District Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.
Kane last fall captained the Warriors as well as the Section II exceptional senior North team. He scored a touchdown in the North’s 28-21 comeback win over the South in the annual all-senior showcase.
During his junior season Kane rushed for 302 yards and four touchdowns in a 40-14 win over Corinth. He also gained 179 yards and scored both touchdowns when Stillwater beat rival Mechanicville, 14-7, in the Indian Bowl.
Kane piled up five touchdowns as a senior when Stillwater defeated Voorheesville, 57-31. He scored 12 touchdowns as a senior and 15 of them as a junior.
Kane is finishing out his scholastic athletic career with the Stillwater baseball team. He belted a two-run home run in Thursday’s 6-5 Section II Class C quarterfinal win over Duanesburg. Earlier in the season, he pitched a one-hitter in a 2-0 win over Schuylerville, and combined with Jonathan Brewster on a no-hitter in a 16-1 victory over Granville.
PELTZ STREAK ENDS
Charlie Peltz’ bid for a fourth straight no-hitter ended Thursday on Julian Gallup’s two-out, third-inning single.
Peltz, the ace of Queensbury’s pitching staff, didn’t allow another hit and struck out 13 in the Spartans’ 11-0 Section II Class A quarterfinal win over Amsterdam.
Peltz hurled no-hitters against South Glens Falls (May 3), Glens Falls (May 8) and Hudson Falls (May 13) to tie the state record before his sectional appearance. The UAlbany-bound senior righty with a nasty cutter had not allowed a hit in 25 2/3 innings.
Peltz improved to 8-0.
