High school: Five Guilderland athletes make their college selections

— Robinson and Marco each chose to take their track and field skills to Division I schools. Robinson said she intends to run cross country, indoor track and outdoor track at Marist -- a combination she's attempting this school year for the first time.

"I'm doing outdoor track for the first time this spring, which I've never done before, in the hopes that it will help me train for next year," said Robinson, one of Guilderland's top distance runners.

A standout in track and soccer, Marco chose to run track at Lafayette.

"I just found that I was better at track, and I liked to be an individual athlete while also being part of a team," said Marco, who's best events are the 400-meter dash and the 400-meter intermediate hurdles.

A defenseman, Center will be joining a Manhattan women's soccer team that features some of the top New York state-born players including Bethlehem Central High School graduate Tara Teal.

"I've always loved playing high-level soccer," said Center. "I'm going to have great competition and great teammates."

"Emily is such a solid player. She should do well there," said Guilderland girls soccer coach Curtis Snyder.
