After covering the NYSPHSAA Softball Championships on Saturday I came right back the next day and shot a few games at the Arkport, NY 12U softball tournament. The action was definitely a change of pace compared to the "big" girls, but it was refreshing to see the girls having a great time. Congratulations to Dansville for winning the tournament with Wayland-Cohocton coming in second place. Stay tuned for more action as I'll be returning to Arkport for a 9U tournament in another week. In the picture to the left a Way-Co player is wondering if someone checked the opponents birth certificate as there was a large height difference. You can see more pictures by clicking on the picture shown here.
Our Action-Pics staff have the pleasure of covering the New York State softball championships on June 13th. It was a long day starting in nice sunshine, moving through hard rain and finally ending with overcast skies and sprinkles. Despite it all five teams were crowned champions. Congratulations to Brentwood (Class AA), Floral Park (Class A), Mechanicville (Class B), Rhinebeck (Class C) and Afton (Class D). In the picture above an Afton players slides into home vs. S.S. Seward in the Class D semi-finals. Full galleries of pictures can be found by clicking on the picture above.

Congratulations to the Haverling baseball team as they captured the 2009 Class BB sectional title with a 12-3 victory over Attica.

The Rams will move on the play the Class B champion, Holley for the right to advance to the state regional game.
