Andes' Karli Tait throws no-hitter; RCS tops MCS in top team match-up

By Julia Green
The Andes softball team that traveled to Roxbury on Thursday was a very different team than the one that took the diamond against the visiting Margaretville Blue Devils just a day earlier.
When the host Mountaineers faced the visiting Blue Devils on Wednesday afternoon, early innings indicated that it would be a tight game. However, a tough sixth inning put Andes in a three-run hole, and an eight-run seventh inning by the Blue Devils all but put it out of reach for the Mountaineers.


Devils keep winning on diamond; Rockets fall in close games

By Julia Green
In sports, it’s a matter of doing the little things right – even when it might not seem like it counts. That mentality is what makes champions, and it is without a doubt the mentality that has earned the Margaretville Blue Devil baseball team the No. 6 slot in the New York State rankings.
It was prominently on display during the sixth inning of the Blue Devils’ home game against the visiting Stamford Indians on Monday night. Despite a 12-0 lead in Margaretville’s favor, a foul tip off a Stamford bat headed toward the home team’s bench and appeared to be out of the reach of MCS catcher Jon Fairbairn.
Key words being “appeared to be.”


MCS, Roxbury teams atop softball divisions

The Roxbury Rockets came out firing on all cylinders in last Thursday’s match-up against the host Wildcats of Hunter-Tannersville, despite less-than-ideal weather conditions.
“It was a wind dome,” said Roxbury Head Coach Jane Ware. “You could throw a ball from first base to home plate on that field and it would move over six feet.”
The gusts didn’t ruffle the feathers of Roxbury pitcher Heather Davie, however, who led off the game with a home run.
