Sports leagues could be formed logically

With Amsterdam and Schuylerville High schools applying for membership into the Foothills Council, why wouldn’t this be the time to re-arrange that sports league and finally get away from the big travel problems that plague these schools?

The schools in the Mohawk River area could easily form their own league with Broadalbin-Perth, Amsterdam, Scotia, Gloversville and Johnstown, plus Cobleskill-Richmondville and Fonda-Fultonville, both of which had previously applied (Cobleskill-Richmondville was rejected and Fonda-Fultonville backed out).

Often schools in their general area, such as Mohonasen, Schalmont and Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons would seem also to be logical entrants.

The remaining schools in the Foothills Council probably could form a more local league consisting of Schuylerville, Glens Falls, Hudson Falls, Queensbury and South Glens Falls plus fledgling “B” schools such as Granville, Hoosick Falls, Mechanicville, Stillwater and Corinth.

Of course, the number of students at each school and its projected growth would have to be considered.
