Loses Not the Story in Falcons’ Final Two Games

June 1, 2014

NEWPORT-The North Country Falcons wrapped up their regular season on Saturday with a doubleheader against first Rice, and then second St. Johnsbury.
While neither game went the way the Falcons would have wanted, what did happen was a fine display of just how far this year's team has advanced from the teams that have recently come before them.
"I thought the effort was good," said NCU coach Brian Bonvechio. "In the second game I thought we played hard, we had a couple of physical mistakes, errors, but those are going to happen, you can't eliminate those so I have nothing to complain about.

June 1, 2014

Cota Goes Yard, Triples, in Lady Rangers’ Final Home Game

June 1, 2014

ORLEANS- You might not think a team with a 6-9 record would head into the play-offs with as much optimism as the Lake Region Rangers softball team.
But rarely is a 6-9 team playing with as much confidence as this batch is at the end of the regular season.
The Rangers finished their regular season this past week with the unenviable task of playing four games in four days, splitting the quartet of contests.

Falcons Fall Short in Season Finale Against Hilltoppers

June 1, 2014

Maddie Mosher fielded the first hit and hurled the ball to first for the initial out. She fielded the second as well, flipping the ball to second to get one more on a force.
