By Jordan J. Michael
BUFFALO The 31st edition of the Empire State Summer Games, back after a hiatus last year because of the state budget crisis, was held in the Buffalo area from July 21 to 25. About 6,000 athletes competed on six teams. These local athletes competed for the Adirondack team.
Elizabeth Lukowski, of Albany, had a time of 26:22.10 in the Open Women’s cycling time trial for sixth place.
Ashley Van Patten, of Schenectady, won a silver medal in Open Women’s diving with a total score of 300.15 in the 3-meter event.
Floyd Miklic, of Albany, won gold and silver in Masters Men’s golf. He shot a 72 in the 18-hole final for gold in the 65-74 years division and shot a 78 in the Low Gross final for a silver medal.
Brenda Goodknight, of Altamont, won a gold, silver, and three bronze medals in the Masters Women’s gymnastics competition. She scored a 7.500 in the balance beam for gold and received silver for her all-around score of 29.375. Goodknight won bronze in the vault, uneven parallel bars, and the floor event.
Alexander Hutchins, of Medusa, and Rory Siy, of Feura Bush, were teammates on the Adirondack Scholastic Men’s fencing team that won silver. The team had a 4-2 record and lost to Long Island twice, the team that beat Adirondack in the gold-medal match.
