Leading off today:
Elmira junior point guard Kiara Fisher
, a third-team all-state selection in Class AA last winter, will miss the 2018-19 season with a shoulder injury.
Fisher, who has verbally committed to play for Syracuse University, disclosed the development on her Twitter account, The Star-Gazette reported. She said she will undergo surgery on her left shoulder for what she termed a "recurring" problem.
"I saw an orthopedic surgeon who said I need surgery to fix it right away," she wrote. "This will give me the best chance to recover and return to top form while preventing any further damage."
Fisher led Elmira to Section 4 championships the past two seasons. She was sixth-team all-state as a freshman.
Fisher averaged 17.5 points, 8.6 assists and 4.9 steals per game last season.
Sec. 6 coach on leave: Buffalo Bennett football coach Steve McDuffie has been placed on administrative leave, WIVB-TV reported.
Citing a source, the TV station reported McDuffie, who just completed his seventh season as head coach, is on leave pending an investigation into harassment claims. A Buffalo Public Schools spokeswoman said the district doesn't comment on personnel matters.
Bennett was 7-3 this fall, losing to Lancaster in the Section 6 Class AA championship game.
This was inevitable: There was an all-girl final over the weekend in the 132-pound bracket of Washingtonville's wrestling tournament.
