    Remember why we are the Scotties?  Our mascot was selected as the #3 best one in the region by the Daily Gazette. See the article HERE.

    #3. Scotties (Ballston Spa). If this was a mere ode to Scottish heritage, it would not make the list. But Scotties comes not from a people, but a person: Bill Scott, the legendary Ballston Spa football coach hired at the district in 1940 who continued to work with teams through 1999, long after he officially retired.  #GoScotties
