Nothing is new under the sun in Poland.

Coach Tom Basel’s unbeaten Poland girls soccer team enters another Section III Class D postseason as the top seed.

Perennial state power Poland (16-0-0) joins Central Valley Academy (Class B) and Waterville (Class C) as the local teams to earn top seeds throughout the Section III playoffs.

Fayetteville-Manlius (Class AA) and Central Square (Class A) are the other No. 1 seeds.

Poland, winner of eight straight Center State Conference league titles, will host Stockbridge Valley (6-10-0) at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Class D first round. The Tornadoes have outscored opponents 96-8 as goalkeeper Emily Schrader’s defense has helped post nine shutouts.

Led by Leah Basel, Lexi Bates and high-scoring forward Riley Wisheart, Poland's Tornadoes — ranked No. 1 on the state poll — are 34-0-1 since falling to Wheatland-Chili (Section V) in triple overtime of the 2017 state final, which was Poland's last of five state title game appearances in six seasons.

Poland’s lone tie in that span was to Cincinnatus in the 2018 Section III Class D final, which marked the Tornadoes’ third straight section title before the Red Lions advanced on penalty kicks.

Poland’s 152-13-1 record since 2012 includes just five losses to Class D teams.

There are many worthy teams in Class B. Reilly Rich and Jazmyn Gillette’s state-ranked No. 14 CVA Thunder (15-1-0) will host the Mount Markham-Homer winner at 6 p.m. Thursday. The Tri Valley League Pioneer champion Thunder didn’t lose a game until a season finale setback to Class A New Hartford (12-3-1).

If seeds hold, CSC Division I champ Clinton (14-1-1) — Class B's fourth-seeded team ranked No. 3 in the state — and No. 5 Holland Patent (13-3-0) — ranked No. 5 in the state — could meet in the quarterfinals. Last year, the teams shared the Class B title before Holland Patent advanced on penalty kicks and made it to the state final.

Clinton goalkeeper Kaitlyn Williams and Holland Patent’s leading scorer Rory Richard have helped their teams remain formidable.

In Class C, CSC Division III and state-ranked No. 9 Waterville (14-0-2) will host the Watertown IHC-Pulaski winner at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Little Falls high-scoring junior Gabby Sylstra and her second-seeded Mounties (14-2) will host No. 15 Sauquoit Valley (5-9-2) at 3 p.m. Tuesday. The state-ranked No. 2 Mounties — 86-12-2 since 2015 — are seeking their fourth straight section crown after advancing to the program’s first state final in 2018.

In Class A, state-ranked No. 19 and third-seeded New Hartford will host No. 6 East Syracuse-Minoa (8-8-0) at 5 p.m. Thursday. The Spartans won the TVL Colonial league title with an 8-0-1 mark.

In the Class AA quarterfinals, sixth-seeded Rome Free Academy (6-9-1) travels to No. 3 West Genesee (9-6-1) at 6 p.m. Friday.
