MCS boys take Upper Delaware; fall to South Kortright in Crossover

By Julia Green
Margaretville 8, Hunter-Tannersville 3
It was the same scenario as last year, but with a very different outcome.
Margaretville’s Wednesday game at Hunter-Tannersville was a must-win for the Blue Devils, and win they did, clinching their first Upper Delaware title since 1995.
“We came so close last year,” said Blue Devils’ Head Coach Rick Funck. “It came down to the last two games of the season. We had a chance to beat Hunter to be champs and we didn’t, and then we had a make-up game the next night against Roxbury and we would have been co-champs but we didn’t win that either, so it was a very difficult end of the season last year. This year, the whole scenario played out again, and it happened to be Hunter, and I told the guys, ‘Last year they won – this year, let’s turn the tables.’ And we were fortunate enough to do that.”

Roxbury Lady Rockets win Mountain Division title

By Julia Green
The Roxbury girls’ softball team, which finished last in 2008, completed a stunning turnaround on Monday by beating visiting Downsville, 1-0, to clinch the Delaware Mountain League division title.
The Rockets, 12-2, clinched the title, thanks, in large part, to a strong showing by Roxbury pitcher Heather Davie both in the circle and at the plate. Davie tallied 13 strikeouts and four walks, limiting the visiting Eagles to a mere three hits, and hit what would be the game-winning RBI double in the sixth inning for the Rockets, who committed no errors in the outing.
