Leading off today:
Ossining is sending a star basketball player off to UConn for the third time in seven years with senior standout Aubrey Griffin's announcement
Thursday that she is committing to the Huskies.
After missing her sophomore season with a torn ACL, the 6-foot-1 wing was first-team all-state in Class AA last winter after averaging 28.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 3.2 steals per game. She led the Pride to their sixth consecutive appearance in the NYSPHSAA championship game in Troy.
Former Ossining stars Saniya Chong (2013-17) and Andra Espinoza-Hunter (2017-18) have previous played for recent Huskies teams.
Griffin, the daughter of former NBA player and current Toronto Raptors assistant coach Adrian Griffin, had also been considering Louisville.
Sec. 3 coach resigns: Cato-Meridian boys soccer coach Gordon "Geoff" Carvey has resigned in the wake of an apparent incident that took place last week after a game last week at Onondaga, Syracuse.com.
WSYR-TV reported that students apologized at school board meeting Tuesday for their conduct at Onondaga -- apparently related to inappropriate gestures around a concrete statue of a Tiger, Onondaga's mascot, after the 4-3 win in overtime.
The school board accepted the resignation at the meeting, during which Jeffrey Baum and Richard Lenahan were appointed as co-coaches in Carvey's place.
District Superintendent Dr. Terry Ward would not elaborate on the incident or the school board's action regarding the coach.
"We're concerned with moving forward with our soccer season," he said. "The new coaches are excited to get started."
Best half game of the week: The East vs. Wilson football game suspended at halftime in Week 2 due to fighting in the stands at a Rochester stadium, will be resumed early next week.
The second half will begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Marina Auto Stadium with Wilson leading 12-6.
"It would send the wrong message to our community if we went and played the game somewhere else," East AD Eric Robinson said. "We're going to finish the game and we're going to do it the right way.
"We're going to play UPrep on Friday at the stadium and we're going to play Wilson at the stadium. We're not going to shy away from playing in 'our' own stadium."
