Gowanda Sports Report for July 29
The All-Western New York Lacrosse team roster was recently released. Former GCS player Brandon Brooks, now at Silver Creek, was selected to the first team. As far as league all-stars, Gowanda's Nolan Lay and Seth Halftown made the second team in Class C. Brody Jimerson and Ryan Richter received honorable mention.
Nick Crassi Jr. continues to battle in his #7 race car in the Late Model Division at Holland International Speedway this summer. He remains in third place, 22 points behind the leader, Eldon King.
Playoffs begin July 23 for the Gernatt Babe Ruth Baseball team. If they can reach the finals, they will play in Diethrick Park, home of the Jamestown Jammers on July 30.
The official start to high school sports is just two weeks away. Gowanda Central School offers football, co-ed cross-country, girls' tennis and girls' volleyball in the fall. The football program will be looking to rebound from a 2-7 record last season while the volleyball team hopes to defend their CCIAC Division I crown. The tennis team has a new coach. Both cross-country teams should be very competitive and exciting to watch.
A co-ed fall soccer program will be offered to children ages 5-12 on Monday nights beginning Sept. 10. The five-week session will include a registration gift, refreshments, instruction and scrimmage games. There is a cost per child. More information will be sent home during the first week of school.
