Sectional seeding meeting Monday (10/26)

The Section 1 field hockey championships seeding meeting will be Monday (10/26), 9:30 a.m. Briarcliff coach Kelly Adams has promised me she will call me with the seeds (Thank you Coach Adams). Hopefully, I will have everything posted prior to my team’s game Monday.

I think the top two seeds in the respective classes are as obvious as the lack of hair on my head. Please correct me if you think I am wrong:

Class A: 1. Suffern; 2. Mamaroneck. This could be the other way around also.

Class B: 1. Lakeland; 2. Rye.

Class C: 1. Bronxville; 2. Putnam Valley.

To be continued Monday.
