MCS hurler makes short work of Downsville Eagles

For Margaretville pitching ace Kyle Short, the three most important pitches he throws are all fastballs: strike one, strike two, and strike three. Short turned in a brilliant pitching performance Monday night, striking out 16 Eagles to lead Margaretville past Downsville, 3-2, in the Delaware League opener for both teams.


Strong hitting not enough for Blue Devils in softball

By John Bernhardt
Margaretville softball coach Kyle Holden is pleased with his team’s offensive production in their first two contests. Holden’s Blue Devils have plated 21 runners but that has not been enough to find the victory column.
Margaretville carried a 9-3 lead into the top of the fifth inning in its opener at South Kortright last Wednesday. The Blue Devils scored four runs in the second and third innings with Cora Bruno and Kate Short getting key hits in the rallies.

Solid pitching, late rally push MCS Blue Devils past SK on the diamond

What started as an old-fashioned pitching duel turned into a 9-1 Margaretville non-league victory when the Blue Devils massed eight runs in the sixth inning last Tuesday in South Kortright. Devin Amundsen’s two-RBI double and Cooper Reither’s two-RBI single helped open the floodgates in Margaretville’s big inning.

Andes track squad off and running for a new season

By John Bernhardt
Only five students signed on that first year, seven springs ago, when Andes Central School started a track and field program. A long run of baseball had come to a close when Andes could no longer find enough boys to field a team. This spring, the Andes track team is off and running with track and field participant levels reaching five times the total of that first year.

Young baseball squad taking the field for Roxbury

By John Bernhardt
With eight seniors lost to graduation, the Roxbury baseball team is turning a new page in 2014.
“We have a lot of newbies on our team this year with a friendly, healthy competition among kids trying to earn a spot for several open positions on the field,” said Roxbury coach Greg Funck. “It’s almost like we’re starting fresh with a whole new group. The first three weeks of the season have been really enjoyable. Everyone is working hard and working together well, attending to baseball basics.”
