Candidates Melissa Reimer and Angus Mackenzie expressed support for Biddy, 49, who has coached boys cross country for 49 seasons. Nearly 1,100 people have signed a petition calling for Biddy's retention.
Biddy was informed by Guccione late in the 2017
cross country season that he would not be brought back as coach this fall.
The source of the problem as far as anyone can tell -- it's difficult to know since the administration isn't talking -- may have been miscommunication about Biddy's intent to take his team to a mid-season meet in Schenectady, though the coach said Guccione treated him well throughout the remainder of the season.
The more cynical amongst observers wonder if district officials simply would prefer to hand the job to someone younger.
Coaching milestone: Cattaraugus-Little Valley baseball coach Chuck Senn won his 600th game Friday when the Timberwolves earned a walkoff triumph.
Tied 2-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning, C-LV's Austin Baker reached on a fielder's choice, Tim Ulinger reached on an error and Shane O'Neill singled to right field to plate the winning run.
Senn is 600-319-5 in 45 seasons of coaching.
Roaring back: Allegany-Limestone spotted Cuba-Rushford an 11-run lead through three innings and then rallied to a 16-11 baseball victory Saturday the consolation game of a tournament at Bolivar-Richburg.
"I think we had a little bit of a letdown after losing the Bolivar game in the bottom of the seventh," coach Eric Hemphill said.
Winning pitcher Ben Giardini was 3-for-4 at the plate with a double, triple, two RBIs and two runs scored.
College plans: It's not a scholarship offer, but I think we have our first FBS commitment from the Class of 2019. Minisink Valley long-snapper Austin Sullivan has accepted an offer to attend Penn State as a preferred walk-on.
The 6-foot-3, 245-pound junior is a two-way lineman for Minisink Valley. He received the offer during a visit to State College, Pa., on April 7 and attended the annual spring scrimmage April 21.
Won and done: A private school in Arizona has dropped football just three years after winning a state championship.
Three years ago, Glendale, Ariz., Joy Christian went 13-0 and captured the Division V state crown under coach Brian Cole. Once Cole left due to philosophical differences with the administration, so too did some of the families with players in the program.
In the two seasons since, under two different coaches, Joy Christian has gone a combined 1-17 and been outscored 901-120.
Extra points: Alex Vega is the new football coach at Brooklyn Tech, replacing Kyle McKenna.
