The JV team consists of Ryan Foreman, Chloe Jarret, Morgan Jarret, Cassie Cerasia and Marriana Mattice.
The Albany league is comprised of 34 teams which compete in different divisions. Mayfield will compete again on Feb. 7 (against Amsterdam and Galway in separate matches), Feb. 28 (against Gloversville and Broadalbin-Perth in separate matches) and March 28 (random matches) in the regional competitions. The date for the state tournament has not been set.
