MCS coach works to keep baseball afloat

in

Staff report
For Margaretville baseball coach John Bernhardt, it’s about more than balls and strikes and wins and losses. It’s about keeping baseball afloat.
“Kids aren’t playing baseball. Baseball is on life support in several Delaware County communities and Margaretville’s one of them,” he commented.

RCS, MCS softball team have high hopes for season

in

By John Bernhardt
Like the sap running in the maple trees or the daffodils pushing through the snow, for over 30 years you can almost always count on spring in the Catskill mountains including a run by Jane Ware’s Roxbury girls’ softball team for a Delaware League crown. If she has her way, Ware’s 2015 team will be in the thick of the title chase again this spring.

It was a remarkable championship encounter, a masterpiece of a basketball game, a contest staged between two worthy opponents, a game contested like every championship match should be played. The environment was electric with large and passionate crowds totally involved in the game representing both combatants. In the end, just about everything in New York State’s Class D Girls’ Basketball Championship game was perfect. That is, except the final score, Heuvelton 61, South Kortright 54.

“A teacher affects eternity; she/he can never tell where his influence stops.” — Henry Adams
For me, coaching has always been teaching and the basketball court or the baseball diamond captivating classrooms. And, in most cases, no matter how hard you prepare or how much passion you apply to your craft, you’re never really certain of the influence of your work. That’s because the lessons taught and learned are sometimes actualized and appreciated long after the student or athlete is no longer part of your circle.

SK boys' club falls in sectionals finals' heartbreaker

in

John Bernhardt
Time stood still Saturday night at SUNY Oneonta. With precious seconds melting off the clock, the game on the line, and just 12 seconds left to play, South Kortright’s Griff Metzko did what he does so well; he took the ball to the basket.
GAME CHANGER — Griff Metzko of South Kortright puts up what appears to be a game-tying shot with 7.7 seconds left in Saturday’s Section 4, Class D Tournament finals at Oneonta State. The ball went in, but Metzko was whistled for a charging foul and the hoop didn’t count. Drawing the charge for Laurens was Anthony Monaco (32). Looking on for SK is Brandon Porter (11). The Leopards would add a free throw after an intentional foul by the Rams, but Metzko’s three-point attempt at the buzzer went off the rim and Laurens captured the championship, 47-44. — Photos by Dick SanfordGAME CHANGER — Griff Metzko of South Kortright puts up what appears to be a game-tying shot with 7.7 seconds left in Saturday’s Section 4, Class D Tournament finals at Oneonta State.
