The AHL is shaking things up.

The league announced plans for realignment Thursday, but it won't have that much of an impact on the Comets.  Utica will remain in the North Division for a third straight year and be joined by Syracuse, Toronto, Rochester, Binghamton, Belleville and the Laval Rocket.

Laval will be the new AHL home of the Canadiens, who are relocating from St. John's.

The most noteworthy change is the Charlotte Checkers moving from the Western Conference to the Eastern Conference, giving each conference 15 teams.  This change revives a storied rivalry between the Clinton Comets and the Checkers from the 1970s.

Sarah Owens makes history for Clinton girl's lacrosse.  Owens notched her 71st and 72nd career goals in a 10-9 win over New Hartford to break the all-time scoring record at the school.

In local softball, Cooperstown falls for the second straight day to Adirondack 4-2 in 14 innings.  Arielle Kranbuhl records 27 strikeouts to set the Section III record in that one.  The Hawkeyes are now 10-2 following a 10-0 start to the season.

In local baseball, VVS bounces back with a 3-2 win over Camden, Oriskany keeps rolling beating Remsen 11-5 and Adirondack squeaks past Cooperstown 3-2.

Elsewhere, RFA scores four runs in the eighth inning in a 6-2 win over New Hartford and Whitesboro gets past CVA 8-2.
