DELMAR: Lady Eagles enter season as league favorites

"These girls got a chance to experience winning last year," said Nealon. "We're still young compared to other teams. We have a group of juniors who were only sophomores (when they played) last year, so they got some valuable experience."

Bethlehem will test itself right away by hosting its annual Tip-off Tournament Friday and Saturday. The Lady Eagles meet the defending Sectional champion Colonie Garnet Raiders Friday and Big 10 power Catholic Central Saturday. Guilderland " last year's Sectional runners-up " is also in the field for the round-robin tournament.

"Colonie is not one of the predicted upper-tier teams, but they're going to be tough," said Nealon.

The Bethlehem boys basketball team is also in action this weekend, as it plays in the Niskayuna Invitational Tournament.""
