Randolph star Tyler Hind made his college plans official Friday by signing his letter of intent to play basketball at Daemen.
Hind inked his letter surrounded by coaches and family at a small ceremony held at Randolph.
The 5-foot-11 guard has posted 294 3-pointers in his career, good for second all-time in Western New York history.
Hind was a third-team All-Western New York selection last season after he averaged 24.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game last season.
He was an instrumental part of the Cardinals’ successful 2018-19 season. Against Bennett in the Class C-2 final, he logged 38 points.
Hind also played quarterback for the football Cardinals.
Clarence girls back in semis
The Clarence girls soccer team has a tall order to deal with in the form of defending state champion Monroe-Woodbury in Saturday’s state semifinal game, set for 12:30 p.m. at SUNY Cortland.
It’s the Red Devils’ sixth-straight semifinal appearance; they’ve been denied a title shot in the past five games. The sixth attempt won’t be any easier; the top-seeded Crusaders have only suffered one loss this season.
Monroe-Woodbury boasts a hardened veteran roster. The Section IX champs are enjoying their seventh-straight tournament appearance and their third-straight Final Four showing.
Some names to look out for on the Crusaders’ side include shifty midfielder Emily Harwood and Alexis DeLeo, who notched the team’s game-winning goal in the regional round.
Clarence has plenty of star power on its own roster, including freshmen Gabby Irwin and Kailey O’Brien, the latter of whom had the game-winning penalty kick against Penfield in the regional round last Saturday.
If Clarence is successful, it will play the winner of Section III’s Fayetteville-Manlius and Section VIII’s Massapequa on Sunday in the state championship game.
A Section VI team has not hoisted a trophy since Allegany-Limestone in 2017.
