Friday’s game against the Ticonderoga Sentinels was an eye opener for the Saranac Chiefs.
The Ticonderoga track and field standout and winner of six NYSPHSAA state championships in the 110-meter hurdles finished the high school chapter of his career with an 18th place finish in the New Balance Outdoor Nationals Saturday, June 14, in Greensboro, N.C.
A school that had 142 students enrolled in grades 7-12 as recently as 2011-12 is facing three straight years of declining numbers, preparing to be as low as an enrollment of 88 in 2015-16 and 89 the following school year.
In Schroon Lake, the athletic department has been facing this issue, having dropped junior varsity basketball programs and not fielding a modified (typically grades 7-9) baseball team this spring.
Snyder ran the Division II 400-meter sprint at the Cicero-North Syracuse high school track in 54.96 seconds, almost six-tenths ahead of the next closest finisher (55.55) to win the Division II NYSPHSAA Championship June 6.

Ryan Trudeau and Hannah Ross dominated on the mound for their respective teams and Jarryn Granger and Maura Jebb played walk-off heroes as both the baseball and softball teams scored 2-1 victories: the boys against Northern Adirondack and girls against Lake Placid, the third straight year the Lady Sentinels have scored a walk-off win against the Lady Blue Bombers to capture the Class C crown.

Mills scored a 57-24 win March 14.
