Like the turning points that change the direction of a person’s life, there are often turning points in a sports team’s season. Midway through the second half in a game played on their own field last Wednesday, the Roxbury boy’s soccer team faced a decisive moment.

MCS girls look to improve goal-scoring for soccer success

By John Bernhardt
Like a master woodworker, Margaretville girls’ soccer coach Toni Smith is searching for the finishing touches her team needs to produce a polished product.

Last fall, Smith’s Blue Devils finished 5-9 but eight of Margaretville’s nine losses were by a single goal. With several key players returning, Smith is confident her team can compete with anybody. The key to the Blue Devils’ season will be their ability to finish promising offensive chances with scores.

MCS Golfers top Gilboa

With Tiger Woods all but disappearing from the leader boards of the major professional golf tournaments, America is looking for its next golf star. Perhaps America’s next King of the Links will be Keegan Bradley, the St. John University graduate, a rookie on the tour, who recently became one of only three professional golfers to win in their major debut. Bradley was the 2011 PGA Champion.
Or perhaps the next American champion is learning their game on the links somewhere in the land in high school golf competition.

Jeter had the baseball world counting hits as he worked to put an exclamation point on a legendary major league career.

By John Bernhardt
It was singing in the rain on the tennis courts in Fleischmanns last weekend. Nearly 50 tennis players danced between the raindrops as they worked through the brackets in five divisions of the 2011 Catskill Cup.

Rain forced intermittent play but spirits were high and most divisions advanced to the final rounds. The local tennis showcase will run its course this coming weekend with championship matches scheduled both Saturday and Sunday.

Catskill Cup tennis tourney this weekend


By John Bernhardt
To Fleischmanns resident Mark Birman, tennis is more than a sport. For Mark tennis is part of his family heritage, a social network that brings together people from all walks of life, and a perfect teaching tool encouraging fitness, strategic thinking, poise under pressure and sports etiquette.
This weekend’s Catskill Cup in Fleischmanns brings Mark full circle, back to his tennis roots. Birman started playing tennis on the public courts in Fleischmanns as a child with his dad, Henry, and some of Henry’s closest friends.
