Section VII girls hockey all-stars

The Saranac Lake and Lake Placid girls hockey teams had a combined five players named as 2012-13 Section VII all-star selections.

Two seniors were named to the first team, with Saranac Lake’s Sydney Battistoni and Kendra Manning of Lake Placid receiving those honors.

Both players captained their squads. Battistoni was a reliable defenseman who originated much of the offense for the Red Storm, and Manning centered the Blue Bombers first forward line. She was a fast skater and always a threat to put the puck in the net.

Anchoring the Saranac Lake defense, sophomore Katey Snyder was honored as the co-goalie of the year. This marks the third season Snyder has played goal for the varsity team. She shared the honors with Albany Academy’s Zoe Shannon.

Carissa Kennedy received second-team honors playing defense for Lake Placid. Also being named a second-team all-star was forward Kate Stevens of Saranac Lake.
