From Ritchie Kirkum:

Chris Manes of Oakfield, last years MVP and 4 year varsity player at Oakfeild-Alabama recently committed to Hilbert College in Hamburg NY to further his education and play Baseball for Coach Jim Pernick and the Hawks. “We are so excited to have Chris. He is a bull dog and will be in the starting rotation as a Freshman. I have been looking for a strong lefty and now I got one. The assistant coaches and team has already met Chris and everyone is so happy to have him aboard. His 4 years experience on varsity and numerous travel teams gives him such an edge. He has played for both excellent high school and travel coaches. “

The snowmobilers are pretty unhappy with winter in 2012 so far, but the golfers don't mind.

About 80 people showed up at Terry Hills today to get in a round on a course that is usually covered inches deep or more in snow this time of year.

"It's amazing," said Brandon Seifert, of Buffalo. "I can't believe it."

Seifert, above right, was with Matthew Olsen, in the cart, and Olsen said he was dubious when Seifert told him he got an email saying the course was open today.

"We golfed here in November and the conditions were a lot worse," Olsen said.

Colin Castile, of Amherst, was also golfing and enjoying the break from snowboarding while getting the chance to tune up his game before spring.

"It’s nice to have a place that’s relatively local that’s open right now," Castile said.
