Leading off today:
The long chase ended in short order Tuesday in Walworth.
Marion senior Chloe DeLyser completed a hat trick just 11:56 into the contest against Gananda to become the leading scorer in U.S. girls high school soccer history.
DeLyser finished with five goals in the 7-0 victory to push her career total to 319 goals. The previous mark of 316 was set by Esmie Gonzalez of Fort Worth, Texas.
"It feels like a lot relief," the Ohio State commit said. "Because, you know every day we're like, 'How close are you?' But right now it's just exciting, getting to do it with this team my senior year. But it's a lot of relief going into sectionals. Now I can just focus on that."
DeLyser's senior totals are up to 59 goals and 20 assists with one game left in the region season.
As a seventh-grader she scored 29 goals. She followed that with 37 goals as an eighth grader and then 47, 68 and 79 in the subsequent three seasons.
Sherwin steps down: The winningest active boys basketball coach in Section 2 is leaving the sideline for now. Argyle's school board last week appointed 2010 graduate Matt Stevens to replace Jack Sherwin, who has 448 victories in 26 seasons.
Sherwin, who began his coaching career with Newcomb in Section 7, remains as athletic director. But he cited unspecified off-court distractions as a factor in his decision to give up coaching for at least the time being.
"I always said when the distractions take away from the coaching of the kids, I'd have to think about not coaching anymore," Sherwin said. "And the off-court distractions are becoming evident more and more, so I decided to take a look at (not coaching)."
He did not rule out a return to coaching in the future.
Sherwin's Argyle teams won nine Section 2 Class D titles and one in Class C. The 2012-13 team ran the table and earned the NYSPHSAA Class D championship.
Boys soccer: I suspect that people will be talking about Ithaca's victory over Maine-Endwell in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference semifinals for a very long time. Ithaca won on penalty kicks 5-3 after the teams ended overtime tied 4-4.
And it was every bit as crazy as you'd suspect, including Maine-Endwell senior Jack Coleman finishing with four goals -- plus a successful penalty kick in the shootout -- in a losing effort.
Ithaca's Bablut Eh scored the decisive penalty kick in the shootout, directing his kick high to the middle moments after teammate Willem Magre made a diving save on a low shot to deny Payton Bennett.
"That's the stuff you dream of as a kid, to put the last penalty kick in," Eh said. "It's only the STAC semi. We'll see what happens in the final."
