BOCES does not have anything scheduled for Sunday, May 17. John Jay assistant Diane Swertfager said that the Indians and Clarkstown South were aiming to play in West Nyack at 4 p.m., but it was not confirmed. I have a softball doubleheader in Congers at noon, so if the game is on, I’ll head over there. I’m off, so there will be no game story, but I’ll pitch it as the lede game of the day. Plus, I really want to see John Jay.
