No baseball at SUNY Sullivan


LOCH SHELDRAKE -- After careful consideration, and due to the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, SUNY Sullivan has canceled their Spring 2021 Men's Baseball season.

“The cancellation of dozens of programs across the Northeast, including three within our conference and over a dozen within our region, resulted in the inability to confirm a schedule that meets the needs of our NJCAA DII scholarship program,” said SUNY Sullivan Director of Athletics and Dean of Student Development Services Chris DePew. “That, coupled with the NCAA's current stance on waivers for spring sports at this time, has put us in a position to cancel our season in the best interest of our student/athlete's future and opportunities.”

DePew noted that SUNY Sullivan student/athletes in all sports have been extremely resilient throughout this difficult time and that they look forward to a full return to their nationally recognized athletic program in the Fall of 2021.

“We will continue to support our athletes throughout this semester and beyond to ensure their success and assist in getting them in the best possible position for the Fall 2021 semester,” said DePew.

He said, at this time, the college plans to move forward with their Men's and Women's Track and Field and Golf programs during the Spring of 2021.

T-V 46, SW 44

The Bears got a win over division rival Sullivan West in a nail biter on Saturday, defeating the visitors 46-44.

Girls Basketball

Spartans slay Wildcats

The start of the high school basketball season in the age of the pandemic has presented a number of firsts for all involved. Playing without fans in attendance. Athletes and referees donning masks. Journalists covering games remotely and trading in their cameras for the screenshot tool on their laptops.

But while much has changed, the benefits of high school sports remain. And with the season underway, the Livingston Manor Lady Wildcats opened their 2021 campaign by hosting the S.S. Seward Lady Spartans.

The game remained close in the first half, with Manor trailing the visitors 16-13 at the break. The Lady Wildcats got within one of Seward in the third quarter before a series of treys put the visitors ahead, and they didn't look back, defeating Manor to the tune of 35-22.

Manor was led by Samantha Severing who scored 11 points.
