Cortland opponent being settled today

Cortland High’s quarterfinal round foe in the New York State Class A baseball tournament will be decided today.
Section 2 champion Queensbury (18-5) will be facing Section 10 champion Massena (10-9) at Clarkson University in Potsdam in a first round match-up in state tourney play, the first pitch slated for 4 p.m. this afternoon.
Coach Ben Albright’s Purple Tigers will then travel to meet that winner on Tuesday, that game to be played at either at Clarkson University or Pulmeri Park in Albany with a starting time still to be determined. CHS is 17-4 on the season after beating New Hartford 4-1 in the Section 3 title game a week ago.
Queensbury was an 8-5 winner over Scotia-Glenville in the Section 2 title game played at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium in Albany last Friday night.
Queensbury had pitcher Charlie Peltz go the distance and pick up the win in that game. Peltz earned notoriety for closing out the regular season pitching three consecutive no-hitters before shutting out Amsterdam 11-0 and Troy 2-0 in the Class A playoffs.
Section 4 champion Maine-Endwell (9-7) also has a first round game in Class A slated for today, the Spartans facing John Jay out of Section 1 in a 4 p.m. start at Union-Endicott High School.
