It didn’t take long.
The Margaretville and Roxbury softball teams ended their Delaware League season last year squaring off against one another in the Crossover Championship game. Mar-garetville won that game to bring home the crown.

The two teams are undefeated in the early going this spring and will bang heads again April 13 in Roxbury. The contest is in an early season showdown that could go a long way in answering which team will be the Delaware League trailblazers in 2011.

Coleman ends SK dream season

By John Bernhardt
Too big. Too fast. Too strong. That’s the no-fail formula Coleman Catholic used to roll past South Kortright in the semi-finals of Saturday’s New York State Class D, Girls’ Basketball Final Four at the McDonough Sports Complex on the Hudson Valley Community College campus in Troy.

It was hair-raising. It was nail biting. It was gut-wrenching. Until Robin Ward hit two foul shots with 0.9 seconds left in Saturday’s New York State Class D, Girls’ Regional Championship game at SUNY Oneonta, no more than three points ever separated the South Kortright Rams and Hamilton Emerald Knights basketball teams.

Ward’s foul shot locked down a 32-27 SK victory propelling the Rams to the Final Four for the second time in the past three years.
