Lake Region Loses Nine Inning Affair to Peoples 7-4

May 13, 2012

ORLEANS–The Lake Region softball team rallied in the first to tie the game, the bottom of the sixth, which eventually forced extra innings, the eighth to push the game to the ninth, but in the bottom of the ninth they could not come up with enough runs to force a tenth as they lost a well played game to the Peoples Academy Wolves on Prom Saturday.
"We kept coming back and coming back. Even though we lost, I think it bodes well for us," coach Matt Tinker said after the game.
The Lady Rangers battled all game long, and it started in the first.

North Country Wins Again, Defeat Highlanders and Tigers

May 13, 2012

NEWPORT/MIDDLEBURY–If you looked at all of the records of the spring teams from North Country, the one that stands out is that of the Falcons boys' tennis crew.
The boys have not lost a match in over a month, currently have a 6-1-1 record and are ranked in the top third of all Division I teams.
"The team likens itself to a junk yard dog," said coach Gary Atchinson. "We have no real big shotmakers. We work our points and I would say we are a real lunch pail, blue collar team."
Starting the weekend at 4-1-1, the boys won back-to-back matches on Friday and Saturday to improve their record.

Eagles Win Battle of the Birds 10-4

May 13, 2012

NEWPORT–Two games in two days can be tough for any athlete, but for a softball pitcher that has to go out and throw back-to-back complete games, it is down right brutal.
That is what Kayla Descheneau had to do this past Thursday and Friday when she took the circle for the Falcons against Colchester and Mount Abe.
With freshman pitcher Taylor Blake unavailable due to a concussion, coach Leslie Dunn had limited options.

Triple Play Highlights North Country- Mount Abe Contest

May 13, 2012

NEWPORT–Triple plays are rare.
I think Taurus at it's full height must triumph over Aries and then trump Gemini, or something to that fact, for it to occur.
Well whether or not the stars were aligned, North Country pulled one off in the sixth inning of their game against Mount Abe on Friday.
Since I was over at the softball game at the time, I will let Nate Stewart, the guy who was in the middle of the action, tell you how it went down.

Wolves Strike Early and Often in 14-3 Win Over the Rangers

May 13, 2012

ORLEANS–It is just a tough time to be a Ranger baseball player.
Lake Region lost their eighth game of the season on Saturday, 14-3 to People Academy, but coach Eric Degree saw some positives on the field from his club.
"My team's play has been a little better than it was earlier this week. They (PA) got a lot of breaks out there today and we did not get any. I got some guys who really starting to come around and we are playing improved defense."
