GREENE – Greene has played field hockey in the land of giants for a long, long time, and has done so successfully. The Trojans, perhaps one-fifth the enrollment size of their next opponent, continues their quest for a second straight New York State Class A title when they face Section II’s Shenendehowa Saturday afternoon at 5:30 p.m.
Shenendehowa won a 3-2 overtime contest over rival Niskayuna to reach this point, and will have the home-field advantage as it will play on its home field. “I’m sure (playing at home) will be helpful to them, but we’re not worried about that,” said Greene coach Sue Carlin, who has guided Greene to a pair of state titles.
A long time ago, Greene’s retired hall of fame coach, Nancy Bromley, thought it was in the best interest of Section IV field hockey to move up in classification. That switch hasn’t slowed the program a bit, particularly the last five seasons – all sectional crowns for Greene.
