MaxPreps has named Glens Falls the best high school sports town in the entire state of New York. The site names one top high school sports town in all 50 states. Not every town recognized is a small town, nor is every town a metropolis. It's somewhere in between. All towns on the list do have one thing in common, they all produce some of the top high school sports teams in the state and in some cases, the nation. Glens Falls was chosen for its history of hosting state basketball tournaments. Additionally Glens Falls High School has had successful teams in boys and girls basketball, particularly in recent years with Joseph Girard III leading the way. Girard set the all-time scoring record in New York last year and ranks among the top 20 all-time leading scorers in national history.
