Just south of Schuylerville and Saratoga in the state of New York is a little town named Stillwater. A small village makes up the center of town, the main street being Hudson Avenue. Along this road(which is also routes 4 and 32) you can see the now polluted Hudson river which if your going North is on your right. It flows southward towards New York City and the Atlantic Ocean, its origin is a lake at the top of Mount Marcy in the Adirondaks which if you standat the top of the Hill on Dick Lynch Road, you have a spectacular view of.

The Stillwater Central School District is just about 3/4 of a mile north of the Village, right along Hudson Avenue. Sporting a brand new turf field and track to go along with it, the school is known to host a few Sectional Soccer and Football games though the Warriors ( Stillwater's mascot) havent made too many appearances at sectionals. Their biggest rivals are the Mechanicville Red Raiders. The teams are either in Class B or C but the entire district is in the WASAREN league for athletics. The school itself is ranked 17th in the state for best education, and the town itself is ranked just 7th in the state for the safest towns.
