Pittsford Mendon girls rally to win Federation championship in overtime

The Pittsford Mendon girls basketball team made more history on Saturday and it had to work overtime to do it.

Trailing by four points with 1:15 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Vikings opened overtime with an 8-1 run and defeated Staten Island Academy, 72-67, in the Class A championship game at the Federation Tournament at Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls.

Mendon (27-1) is the first large-school (Class AA or A) team from Section V to win a Federation championship. Notre Dame of Batavia won a Class D Federation title in 1999 and Penn Yan won Class B in 1986. The Vikings outscored Staten Island Academy 21-5 on second-chance points. Read More
