Vestal needs big effort against top team in state

Posted:
After winning their first Section Title since 1999 the Vestal Golden Bears have the toughest matchup in the state tournament as they take on Albertus Magnus in the Sub-Regionals. Albertus Magnus is ranked first in New York State in Class A.

While the Bears did win the Class A Section Title, they needed to do it in comeback fashion, down by ten at the half. If they want to make a run at a state title, it will take a huge effort to get to the next round.

"We need to push ourselves even further than we did [Friday], said Alani Gallagher. "I think we can really accomplish it. I think we can go even further than regionals. I'm just so happy for all of us, I'm really excited."

"It's going to take a lot better first half going down to Purchase college next week because we play a very good Albertus Magnus team," said Head Coach Joe Reynolds. "The environment is going to be a lot more harsh than anything we're usually used to. If we come out strong, we can play with anybody."

Vestal travels to SUNY Purchase for Tuesday's 7:00 tip off.
