Empire State Games to Valley in 2014 a distinct possibility

Frank Intervallo, the Hudson Valley regional director for the Empire State Games, said the new organizers of the summer games have reached out to representatives in the region about hosting the state Olympics in 2014.
“I think it’s exciting and it’s great the Games are back,” Intervallo said, “and it’s even better that they are considering coming back to the Hudson Valley. It speaks highly to the experience we had in 2005 and the faith they have in us to bring the Games back to where they should be.”
The Mid-Hudson Valley hosted the 2005 Empire State Games, utilizing Poughkeepsie, New Paltz, Newburgh and the surrounding area. Those Games were considered a critical success by state officials.
The region was set to host the Games in 2009 before the state ran into serious financial troubles and forced local organizers to pull the plug on a scaled-back Games. The Empire State Games returned in 2010 in Buffalo but the state did away with the Games’ organization in 2011.

Dover to become 17th team in Mid-Hudson Athletic League, effective 2012-13

Section 9 voted unanimously to approve membership for Dover. The Dragons will become the 17th member of the Mid-Hudson Athletic League, and likely will be assigned to either Division Three or Four, the two small-school divisions in the MHAL. Dover is considered a Class B enrollment school for most sports and Class C for others.
Dover High School, from the Eastern Dutchess County town of Dover Plains, has been a member of Section 1.
Dover has been a competitive school for most varsity sports. However, the lack of senior athletes for its basketball teams has forced the school to field only junior varsity teams for girls and boys in the coming school year, with plans to return to varsity.

Nick Bramall goes from Goldback to Red Fox

Newburgh Free Academy soccer standout Nick Bramall has decided to attend Marist College. He will play for the Red Foxes in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
Joining Bramall in the freshman class are Arlington grad Myles Ashong, an all-Section 1 all-star, and goalkeeper Alex Wozniak of California.
Bramall, listed as a defender for the Red Foxes, was a three-year starter for Newburgh, earning all-Section 9 awards as a defender in 2008, a forward in the state-title season of 2009 and as a midfielder in the sectional-title season of 2010. He was a first-team Varsity 845 all-star and top candidate for player of the year. He was named NSCAA All-Region II last season.
“Nick is a tough, hard-nosed soccer player,” said Marist coach Matt Viggiano. “He brings good size, strength and great pedigree to our program.”
