Girls swimming

Saratoga Springs pulled off a mild upset as it defeated Bethlehem 95-89 in Tuesday's Suburban Council girls swim meet.

The Blue Streaks (1-1) won only two events -- the 200-yard freestyle and the 200-yard freestyle relay -- but their depth helped them fend off the Lady Eagles (1-1). Elle Kolakowski led Saratoga by winning the 200 freestyle and swimming on the winning relay team.

Grace Ayer (200 individual medley, 100 breaststroke), Lauren Zemering (50 freestyle, 500 freestyle) and Kelsey Bohl (100 freestyle, 100 backstroke) each won two individual events for Bethlehem. Kessler Thompson (diving) and Haley Goodrich (100 butterfly) also earned victories.

Elsewhere, defending Section II champion Shenendehowa had little trouble in defeating Guilderville 98-80 in Clifton Park.

Julia Samson recorded a state meet qualifying time of 54.02 seconds in the 100 freestyle and won the 200 freestyle to lead the Plainswomen (2-0). Susie Schwarz (200 individual medley), Sydney Weiskopf (diving) and Angela Ferlo (500 freestyle) also won individual events.

Kelly Gao took first place in the 50 freestyle and the 100 backstroke for Guilderville (0-2). Julia Suozzo (100 butterfly) and Nicole Das (100 breaststroke) also earned victories.

Girls tennis

The Shaker girls tennis team won four of its six singles matches for a 5-4 Suburban Council victory over Saratoga Springs Tuesday.

Shannon Mukerji, Stephanie Behrens, Mia Fallati and Nicole Cocca claimed singles victories for the Blue Bison. Kristen Cocca and Liann Goldman added a victory at No. 2 doubles.

Julianna Rosati and Rachel McDonald posted singles victories for the Blue Streaks, who also won two doubles matches.

Field hockey

Scotia-Glenville rallied from a two-goal deficit to tie its Foothills Council field hockey game against South Glens Falls Tuesday, but the Bulldogs got the final tally in a 4-3 win.

Ashley O'Neil and Megan Murdock scored in the second half to help the Lady Tartans pull even at 3 before South Glens Falls won the game with 1:03 left in the second half. Amanda Kot had Scotia-Glenville's first-half goal.
