On Friday night, the Haverling Rams hosted LCAA rival Hornell in a quarter-final sectional game. The two teams had split their games in the regular season so this was a highly anticipated match-up. It was a beautiful night for a game as proven by the large crowd at the Bath VA complex. Haverling took advantage of Hornell fielding errors and walked off the VA field for the last time victorious winning 5-2. Rams Senior, Mike Rossi, pitching in his final home mound appearance, came away with the full game win, striking out 5 and scattering 5 hits. The Rams will next play Penn Yan at Hornell Tuesday night at 7PM.

In Class DD Sectional Softball action, number 10 seed Arkport pulled off the upset by defeating number 7 seed Avoca 4-0 on Tuesday. Avoca had defeated Arkport twice during the regular season, but it was Arkport who would have the last laugh. In the photo above, Avoca's Alli Robords get the force out at home. Arkport's Brooke Lovell pitched a complete game shutout to record the win. With the win Arkport will take on the number 2 seeded Keshequa Lady Indians on Friday, May 29.

I've been busy doing team and individual photography plus a lot of events lately, so I'm a little behind in adding to the blog. Last night, I caught my first track meet of the season and fortunate enough to witness a school record being broken. Eighth grader, Ireland Armstrong broke the girl's pole vault record, previously held by Chelsea Adams, when she cleared 8'9". Another school record went down as sophomore, Megan Russell broke her own record in the 100 meter hurdles crossing the finish line at 16.4. Overall the Haverling girls beat Livonia 94-47 while the boys also were victorious by a final score of 86-54.

In the picture above a unidentified Wayland-Cohocton player slides safely into home as Bath's Billy Crowe trys to get the tag. The game was a back and forth affair with Wayland-Cohocton coming away from the 11-9 road victory. In the game Bath's Montana Yastremski took the loss on the mound (11 strike outs, 7 walks), but led the Rams at the plate with 3 RBIs. The Rams' Billy Crowe and Mike Rossi each added 2 hits. Wayland-Cohocton had Kim Houtz, Brent Gibbs and Ryan Gibbs all record doubles.
