Anderson tops field to take 10th county championship

in

Staff report
Brad Anderson’s steady play on the back nine at the Delhi College Golf Course helped him to a record 10th Delaware County Amateur Championship on Sunday.

Anderson had nine pars en route to an even-par 72, earning a two-stroke victory over Neil Krick.
Krick erased a rough start to hold a one-stroke lead after the opening nine. That lead disappeared when he bogeyed the par-three 14th hole. Anderson pared to pull into a tie. That tie remained through 16, when Krick holed a 20-foot bendy putt to save par.

Takes lead late

Errors doom MCS, RCS in sectional softball play

By John Bernhardt
Spotty defense Thursday in the middle innings cost the Margaretville Blue Devils girls’ softball team a chance to advance to the Section IV quarterfinals.

The eighth-seeded Blue Devils committed four errors in the third and fourth inning allowing eight unearned runs as they fell, 12-8, to ninth-seeded Milford. The errors were Margaretville’s only defensive miscues in the game.


Roxbury downs Blue Devils in Crossover

By John Bernhardt
There’s not much Brittany Keator can’t do on the softball diamond. All season long the Roxbury senior has carried her team with one stellar pitching performance after another. Thursday in the Delaware League crossover championship game at Neahwa Park in Oneonta, she spoke with her bat as well as her arm, leading the Rockets to a 10-3 title win over Margaretville.


MCS baseball ends season at Doubleday

Staff report
Perhaps it was the spirit of playing baseball in a stadium where so many of professional baseball’s greats once played. Perhaps it was the traditions, the dignity, and the somber grace of a visit to a 73-year-old baseball cathedral.


MCS Tennis repeats as league co-champs

By John Bernhardt
For the third consecutive season, the Delaware League regular season tennis race has ended in a tie. Margaretville and Windham finished deadlocked at the top of the standings with identical 10-2 records. The championship draw was Margaretville’s second shared crown in the last three campaigns.


Margaretville, Roxbury girls to meet in league championship game

By John Bernhardt
The Roxbury and Margaretville girls’ softball teams will meet for a third time Thursday when they square off at 4:30 p.m. at Neahwa Park in Oneonta. This time the Delaware League Championship is on the line.

The Rockets were winners the first two times, toppling the Blue Devils 9-5 in the non-league opener for both teams and then blanking Margaretville, 8-0, in a Delaware League contest a week later.


Roxbury wins 3; Devils split pair

Staff report
In the midst of a hitting streak, major league baseball players often claim they see the ball so well that it looks more like softball than a baseball. If that’s the case, for Roxbury junior Eric Shultis the baseball must have seemed like a beach ball last week.

Shultis went on a torrid hitting streak going 6-11 with a double, triple and homerun to lead his Rockets team to three straight victories and thrust Roxbury back in the hunt for a post-season playoff berth.

Late rally


MCS, Roxbury girls earn softball victories

Staff report
Trailing 4-1 in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Margaretville bats finally came alive. The Blue Devils scored runs in each of the final frames to edge Gilboa, 5-4, in a Delaware League softball contest played Monday night in Margaretville.

Rachel Matheisen blasted a home run in the sixth to awaken the Blue Devil’s slumbering bats. Crafty base running helped Margaretville tie the game in the bottom of the seventh. Amy Filupeit singled, stole second, advanced to third tagging up on an outfield fly ball, and raced home on Tess Svoboda’s infield ground out.
