The farthest distance traveled for the U-E Tigers during the regular season STAC schedule was a 1:04 drive out to Horseheads. Now that they will be playing for a state championship, there's a little more driving involved. Door-to-door from U-E High School to the Glens Falls Civics Center, it's a 2:54 trek. While it's never easy to make a drive on a bus that long and play a game soon after, the Tigers planned ahead and left on Friday, well in advance of their 12:30 game on Saturday.
In addition to that, Head Coach Joe Alger says that many of the players have traveled long distances before, for other sports. The Tigers football team recently had to travel to Rochester for the state semi-finals in football where they lost to Williamsville-North, a trend they hope to stop this season.
NEW INFORMATION: Where was Frein Hiding
Pennsylvania law enforcement release more information about Frein's likely whereabouts following his Friday morning arraignment. Frein is suspected of killing a police officer and wounding another in September.
He faces numerous charges including first degree murder.
Investigators say they think Eric Frein found shelter and food during weeks on the run in eastern Pennsylvania in part by accessing unoccupied cabins, State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens told reporters Friday.
