Colonie fared better on the girls' side, as the Lady Raiders took fifth place in the team standings with 41 points. Shaker was sixth with 30 points.
Colonie's 800-meter relay team had the top performance. The team of Kyle Plante, Kristina Lenge, Corrine Serrano and Aimee Bacher won the race with a time of 1:49.94, nearly four seconds ahead of second-place Shaker.
Plante had a second-place performance in the 55-meter dash. The freshman finished with a time of 7.28 seconds, .19 of a second behind Saratoga Springs' Madalayne Smith, who set a Section II record with her time of 7.09.
Molly Nephew led Shaker with a third-place finish in the high jump. The junior cleared the bar at 5 feet.
Colonie and Shaker return to the University at Albany Sunday to compete in the inaugural Great Dane Classic. The meet is the final tune-up for both teams as they prepare for the Section II, Division I championships, which take place Feb. 14.
"Now, we have to figure out how to come back stronger for Sectionals because there will be some strong teams coming in," said Stadtlander.""
