Leading off today:
Sean Carney's one-year temp job at Yorktown has become an ongoing gig following a decision Monday by the school board to not restore Dave Marr as the boys lacrosse coach.
Carney coached last spring while Marr served a one-year suspension for antics that followed his ejection from a loss to Jamesville-DeWitt in the 2016 NYSPHSAA Class B championship game.
Carney spent 17 years as a Huskers assistant and was running the offense before he was promoted last season. Under him, the Huskers went 17-5 and earned their 40th Section 1 title before losing to Victor in the state final.
Recently hired AD Rob Barrett and four others formed the selection committee and interviewed Marr and Carney. "Based on the feedback I received, the vast majority felt that either way, Yorktown lacrosse was going to be OK," Barrett told The Journal News. "Some people might have a personal preference, but no matter how this played out we were going to be fine from the standpoint of Xs and Os."
Marr took over in 2003 and has a career record of 223-75 with 12 sectional titles and two state championships.
• The school board also promoted assistant Lauren McAuley to head girls lacrosse coach. She replaces Ellen Mager, who retired after 22 years with the program.
Nice feat on the links: Defending Section 6 boys gold champion Kevin Halpern of Williamsville North recorded a rare albatross during Monday's 248-282 win over Williamsville South.
Playing the 475-yard No. 7 at Country Club of Buffalo, the senior hit his tee shot about 330 yards and then holed out with a wedge. The second shot hit the front of the green and rolled into the hole.
According to the United States Golf Association, the odds of making an albatross are about 1 million to 1, The Buffalo News reported.
Changes on Section 2 benches: Schenectady AD Steve Boynton has offered the school's boys basketball job to John Miller, who is expected to be approved by the school board next month, The Daily Gazette reported.
He replaces Eric Loudis, who resigned last month.
Miller, 34, has worked in the district for 11 years. He was a head coach at the modified level for eight seasons, a JV head coach for three and served as Loudis assistant last winter as the Patriots made their first trip to the Section 2 semifinals since 2006.
"This is an opportunity I'm welcoming," Miller said. "I've been looking forward to this for a long time."
