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.

MCS, Roxbury teams atop softball divisions

By Julia Green
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.
