RCS softball club splits two this week

It’s a season of transition in Roxbury with a lot of new faces, and veteran softball coach Jane Ware is still figuring out what she does and does not have. One thing Ware has learned is that her girls can hit the softball. Roxbury banged out double digit batting outputs, 23 hits in all, several of the extra base variety, as her Rockets edged Stamford last Wednesday, 16-13, before falling to Gilboa, 14-7 on Thursday.

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.
