Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Cazenovia share 2011 championship
   (July 6, 2011) -- No one was able to knock two-time defending champion Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake from the top perch, but the Spartans have company in the No. 1 position.

   For the first time, the New York State Sportswriters Association All-Sport Championship recognizing the top athletic programs in the NYSPHSAA has ended in a tie for overall honors.

   The combined-scoring class champions for the 2010-11 school year are Baldwinsville (AA), Burnt Hills (A), Cazenovia (B), Friends Academy (C) and Chazy (D). It's the third straight class championship for Burnt Hills; the other four schools are first-time champions.
