As the spring sports season wraps up, we want to know which team had the most impressive run to its Section II championship. Here are your five contenders:

Bethlehem boys tennis -- The Eagles navigated through the Suburban Council season without a loss and then withstood a challenge by Guilderland to edge the Dutchmen 5-4 in the Class A finals.

Niskayuna boys lacrosse -- The Silver Warriors hardly broke a sweat until they met Shenendehowa in the Class A finals and fell behind 4-1. But, they dominated the second half and defeated the Plainsmen 17-11.

Shaker girls lacrosse -- The Blue Bison put the brakes on Guilderland's undefeated season by beating the Lady Dutch 9-8 in the Class A finals for their first Sectional title.

Shenendehowa softball -- The Plainswomen needed a late rally to beat Saratoga 8-4 in the Sectional quarterfinals, but they got past Catholic Central and Guilderland to win their seventh Class AA championship.

Voorheesville baseball -- A late-season stumble dropped the Blackbirds to the No. 8 seed in Class C, but they dominated top-seeded Hoosic Valley 11-0 in the quarterfinals on their way to winning their first Sectional championship.

Voting is open until midnight Monday, so make your choice today.
