Albany High debuts new athletic field -- Oct. 17, 2015
Saturday, Oct. 17 was a great day to be
a Falcon as Albany High School played on its new athletic field for the
first time. It was the first on-campus varsity football game ever at an
Albany public school, and the fans braved the chilly weather to
celebrate the occasion.
A host of elected officials were among
those who turned out to cheer on the Falcons and celebrate the start of
a new era and great things to come for Albany High, including Board of
Education President Ginnie Farrell, Vice President Sue Adler and
Secretary Kenneth M. Bruce. Also showing their support were New York
State Assembly members Pat Fahy and John McDonald, Albany County
Executive Dan McCoy, Albany County District Attorney David Soares and
former Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings.
From the tailgate party put
on by the Falcon football family before the game to the end of the
Falcons' 49-13 loss to former crosstown rival CBA, it was a fun event
and a sign of big things to come.
