First off, a very sincere thank you to everyone for their warm wishes of quick health. I feel much better this morning than I did yesterday, and I’m sure the positive thoughts helped in that regard. That said, I’ve got a pretty busy day planned ahead. For those asking or wondering what happened to the player of the week post for this week, I’m selecting her today. I was really trying not to overextend myself Sunday or Monday, and the POTW is not a budgeted item.

Here’s the schedule for Tuesday, Oct. 18, plus my predictions:
I have a staff meeting at 2 p.m. and plenty of other work to do, but I’d love to swing by Pelham-Ardsley since it’s relatively close to the office and I haven’t really seen either during the regular season. The best match on today’s slate will be Yorktown at Ossining, as two lohud-ranked top five teams duke it out for the second time this year (Yorktown swept the previous meeting, but Ossining has bee playing significantly better since then.)
