Brother vs. Brother
Reynolds siblings coach Bulldogs, Orange in Class D game
JOHN CORYER Press-Republican
Just call it fate.
When Section VII champion Indian Lake/Long Lake battles Section X champion Chateaugay today at noon at Potsdam State’s Maxcy Hall in the NYPHSAA Class D girls’ basketball regional finals, it will be brother against brother on the coaching lines.
John Reynolds is the coach of the Orange and younger brother Chris the coach of the Bulldogs. One stands in the way of the other as a berth in the Final Four is at hand.
“How cool is that?” replied John. “One of us in going to the Final Four. He (Chris) was at our game against Ford Edward, and he was our biggest fan. He’s a really good coach, and I’m sure he’s preparing like crazy.
“Chateaugay is also my old school and I’m still part Bulldog.”
“We talked about something like this happening but felt it would be a rare chance if it did,” said Chris. “It’s hard to get where we are at right now.
“I’ve been coaching my whole life it seems and now I’m coaching against my brother and niece (Carli). It’s going to be a tough game. We have a gameplan going in and will try to follow it. But, John is very organized.”
Indian Lake/Long Lake (20-2), after winning a sectional title for the first-time ever in any girls’ sport with a 40-24 victory over defending Section VII champion Westport at the Plattsburgh State Field House, advanced to the regional finals with a thrilling 52-51 win over Section II’s Fort Edward on Tuesday.
Melanie Pierson, who has averaged four points a game this season, scored a team-high 15 and was followed by standout Carli Reynolds with 13 and Allison Pine, 11.
Reynolds hit both ends of a one-and-one with three seconds left to send the game into overtime and Pine, with Reynolds getting the assist, scored what proved to be the game-winning basket.
“We don’t play against anyone like Fort Edward in the regular season,” John said. “They really get at you and are relentless. I’m so proud of the kids. They tried to put the pressure on someone else and Melanie Pierson came through for us.
“Carli came through for us at the end of regulation. She made sure of her mechanics and hit both free throws. I was pretty proud of her.”
“Carli is very dangerous,” said Chris. “She can score a number of different ways and has a great supporting cast.
“Fort Edward forced them into getting points from other places and they did. I’m concerned because Indian Lake/Long Lake is a strong defensive team.”
Chateaugay (16-6) fell in the semifinals of the Section X overall playoffs after winning the Section X Class D championship and had a bye to the regional final.
On the way to winning the sectionals, the No. 3 seed Bulldogs defeated No. 6 seed Colton-Pierrepont, 52-22 in the quarterfinals, No. 2 seed Hammond, 54-46, in the semifinals where Courtney Boyea nailed five three-pointers and No. 1 seed Hermon-Dekalb, 31-22, in a low-scoring title game.
“We’ve peaked at the right time and practices have been outstanding,” said Chris. “We still have a very young team, but they are getting very excited about basketball.
“We have been able to stay in games because of our defense.”
The two teams did meet earlier in the season in Chateaugay and the Bulldogs emerged with a 37-30 victory. Boyea led the way with 14 points, while Raquel Fowler added 10 points and 15 rebounds and Makayla Fleury, 10 points and eight boards.
Carli Reynolds scored 17 of Indian Lake/Long Lake’s points and Allison Pine added seven along with doing her usual good work in the rebounding department.
“Chateaugay did a good job in their man-to-man defense,” said John. “They did a good job on Carli and we just didn’t knock down enough shots.
“But, our whole town is so excited about this game — even the neighboring community. It’s really cool and we hope we can keep it going.”
The Bulldogs, ranked fifth in the state, are led in scoring by Boyea (13.1), Fowler (10.7) and Fleury (8.2). The Orange, ranked seventh, counter with Reynolds (20.0), Pine (9.1) and Murphy Farrell (5.9).

Volunteer spirit soars

To the editor:

The Town of Long Lake would like to thank all the volunteers that helped out this 2009 summer season in Long Lake and Raquette Lake.

Thank you to the Red Hats and Flower Beautification Committee that planted in the barrels around Long Lake and a thank you to the Long Lake Town Board and CAP-21 and the volunteers who helped hang and maintain the hanging flower baskets in Raquette Lake.

Also a huge thank you to all those individuals who helped keep the Long Lake Teen Center at Mt. Sabattis thriving three nights a week during the summer season. Thanks to: Jud Graham, Anita and Jim Brundage, Joe San Antonio from Hamilton County Trailblazers, Steve Signell, Julia Pierce, Molly Irvine, Kelly Brown, Victoria Sandiford, Theresa Taylor, Ceci Bush, Kate Parent, Emily Farr, Kristen Lance and Shane Holmes.

Also thank you to The Cellar, The Long Lake Ladies Kazoo Band, Eunice and Walter Hartmann, Jacquie and Mike Rivette, Mike and Nancy Hosley, Ruth Howe and the Eastern Star and the participants in Long Lake’s Road Rally for their contributions. The generous donations offset the costs of food, snacks and equipment needed to get the Teen Center off the ground.

The teens enjoyed recreational basketball games, tennis, volleyball, foosball, badminton, Pictionary and charades. The kids also made jewelry, learned about geo-caching and had a safe place to go. We look forward to continuing the Teen Center next season.

We appreciate the vibrancy and community spirit of Raquette Lake and Long Lake and are so pleased to have had a successful summer. We certainly look forward to keeping that volunteer spirit alive in the upcoming winter months!

We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your help.
