The Fulton girls’ varsity basketball team took the court this season as a team that lacked experience at the varsity level.
However, Fulton went on to finish the 2013-14 season with an overall record of 7-13 en route to a Sectional Playoff appearance.
The Lady Raiders fell to Jamesville-DeWitt in the quarterfinals of The Class A, Section 3 Playoffs.
This season, Fulton played a very tough schedule, but often answered the challenge.
Fulton Coach Derek Lyons said the experiences his team had this season should help them realize they can play with anyone if they are able to play together.
Looking ahead, Lyons is optimistic about the future of Fulton girls’ basketball.
He feels the promise his young team showed this season could pay off for them in a couple of years. Lyons points out the key to his teams’ success in the future will be its work ethic.
“These kids are hard workers and have the capability to be really good,” he said.
In an effort to recognize local artistic talent in Central and Northern New York, state Sen. Patty Ritchie, along with the North Country Arts Council, hosted a celebration of the arts Thursday evening in Watertown.
At the event, those who have participated in the “Senator Ritchie Celebrates Local Artists” program were recognized.
Through the effort, two dozen artists have had their work featured in Ritchie’s Albany, Ogdensburg, Oswego and Watertown offices.
The work of past featured artists can be viewed at Downtown Watertown’s Franklin Building or at www.ritchie.nysenate.gov.
In addition, at the event, high school students from the Central and Northern New York region were inducted into Ritchie’s local artists program, and in the weeks to come, will have their artwork featured in her offices.
Several high school students were also invited to perform in the areas of song and dance.
“Our region is home to so much great local talent, and this event was a way to not only highlight that, but also to thank the artists who share their amazing work with us. This event was truly special, because we recognized our region’s ‘next generation’ of artists, by honoring high school students who have exceptional artistic abilities and inviting several of those students to perform,” Ritchie said.
“I’d like thank the North Country Arts Council for helping to make this event possible. The organization is a wonderful resource not only for artists, but also for the community experience the various types of culture our area has to offer,” she said.

Volney Elementary School students attended a spirit assembly Feb. 28 in recognition of their positive behavior and for being role models.
Principal Lisa Garofalo gave certificates to one student from each classroom who exemplified the character trait of honesty.
In addition to the classroom role models, 22 students were awarded certificates for being “On A Roll” models.
The monthly classroom role models were Aiden Grant, Ethan Clark, Kyle Stuber, James DeCare, Tyler Budd, Abbigail Gist, Keira Scott, Caitlin Roberts and Ashley Huller.
Also: Caiden Taber, Marissa Bowering, Lydia Gigliotti, Alexis Ingersoll, Grace Esposito, Emma Brewster, Nick Miceli, Nick Smith, Cassandra Seaton, Chloe Hurlbut and Jessica Hyman.
Students earning recognition as the monthly “On a Roll” models included Adriana Raymond, Caleb Turner, Gavynn Krick, Valerie Nichols, Brayden Moshier, Caleb Clark, Parker Ellis, Hailey Ward, Amber Dumas and Cory Hyman.
Also: Tylyn Boshart, Brad Currier, Shane Gouterngout- Reynolds. Tesa Galvin, Mason Firenze, Lilly Dumas, Sarah Gigliotti, Emily Grant, Rain Frank, Sabastion Lauckarn, Tyler Emeterio and Jayce Gibides.
After the awards presentation, Garofalo read aloud Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind by Judy Finchler and Kevin O’Malley.
In the book, character Principal Wiggins promises to dye his hair purple and sleep on the school roof if the students read 1,000 books in a school year.
With March 3 being the 17th annual Read Across America Day, Garofalo decided to put out a challenge to her school: read 2,500 books in one week.
If students meet the challenge, Garofalo, like the principal in the story, agreed to spend the night on the roof and dye her hair purple.
Students could hardly contain their enthusiasm, and went home for the weekend fired up to read.
