Fall Sports Success

With three Region III tournament appearances, Hudson Valley athletic teams already have achieved considerable success during the 2006-07 school year.

Despite a slow start, the men's soccer team rebounded to win six of its last Region III games to earn the 12th seed in the Region III Tournament. Hudson Valley upset No. 5 Erie Community College, 4-3, in the opening round before suffering a heartbreaking 2-1 loss at Alfred State in the quarterfinals.

The women's soccer team also qualified for the Region III Tournament after a one-year absence, and the Lady Vikings finished the season with a 12-7 record, the most wins for the program since 1993.

And under first-year head coach Andrew Scampini, the tennis team finished second at the 2006 Region III Tournament. More athletic news ...
