Cicero-North Syracuse softball pitcher Sydney O'Hara, named the Gatorade New York State Player of the Year earlier this week, led the Northstars to its first state Class AA championship since 2006 Saturday in Queensbury, tossing back-to-back shutouts and hitting two home runs in the state final, a 5-0 victory over East Meadow.

All the Cicero-North Syracuse softball team wanted to do was win one more game than it did each of the last three seasons - to "Finish It", as they so succinctly put it. And the Northstars did finish the task on Saturday, winning the state Class AA championship for the first time since it prevailed on its home diamond in 2006.
