Alvin Porter enjoys the thrill of victory

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.""
