O’Connell is ‘pitcher perfect’ in MCS victory over Windham

By John Bernhardt

Calling off his teammates, nobody doubted it was Margaretville pitcher Patrick O’Connell who would finish the play. When O’Connell’s mitt closed around the ball, the sophomore hurler had accomplished the improbable, recording the final put out of a pitching rarity, a perfect game. Not a single Windham Warrior reached base against O’Connell during the entire seven-inning game.

Lady Devils, Rockets set to start softball campaigns

By Julia Green
First-year Margaretville head coach Bill Lonecke returns a strong roster from the 2008 Lady Blue Devils’ softball team, including five seniors and three 2008 Delaware League All-Star selections. Lonecke was an assistant with the Blue Devils last year and fills the vacancy left by Robyn Lukaszewski, who accepted a teaching position in the Rondout Valley school district.
“Only having 11 kids this year, they look really good,” Lonecke said. “I only have one girl who is new who came up from modified this year. The rest of them are returning players from last year, and last year we won the Upper Delaware League, and I think we have a real good chance to repeat it.”
