Boys: Webster Schroeder sophomore Matt Gamble has qualified for the state tennis tournament four years in a row, but this year, Gamble moved into the semifinals for the first time in his illustrious career. Gamble, the top seed in the singles bracket, cruised to two victories at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows. Gamble topped Felipe Osses-Konig of Beacon 6-1, 6-2 in the quarterfinals after winning 6-0, 6-2 in the second round and is two wins away from that elusive state title.

Girls: Senior Amanda Dow chose a great time for the first home run of her varsity career. Dow launched a walkoff, three-run home run to lift the top-seeded Greece Arcadia softball team to the Class A1 sectional championship. Dow's blast sent the Titans (17-2) to a 4-1 win over Pittsford Sutherland, and ensured longtime head coach Gary Myers would go out a winner. Myers is retiring at the end of the season, his 37th coaching softball. Dow earned tournament MVP honors after recording two of Arcadia's five hits in the championship game.
