Eagles return to their nest

Nealon said those types of efforts will be common for Bethlehem this season. "With the girls we have coming back from last year, we have a lot of (scoring) options. So, no team can focus on any one player," he said.

Being able to play true home games will also help the Lady Eagles, who return four starters from last year's team.

"You never realize how much of an advantage it is to play home games until something like that (flood) happens," said Nealon.

Ironically, the Lady Eagles must hit the road this week for games against Columbia (Tuesday), Niskayuna (Friday) and Troy (Saturday). But they will be home soon enough to show their fans that they're ready to challenge for a divisional title in the Suburban Council.

"We're going to be a team that not a lot of people are going to want to play come January," said Nealon.""
