The Patriots have a pair of matchups on the schedule this week with Our Lady of Lourdes. This team is rolling right along as they move in on a second straight title.
Sophomore pitcher Mandy McCarthy has been as good as anybody in Section 1 this season. She’s allowed just two earned runs in 50 innings and struck out 61 for the four-time champs.
Even with a setback to Harrison, the Dutchies hold their No. 3 spot. Harrison is on a run and TZ has recently posted wins over Ursuline and South, so they really can’t drop below.
The Koalas are past the grueling stretch of their schedule and should be able to build some momentum — and help their seeding — for the Section 1 Class A tournament.
South continued its stellar season with wins over North Rockland and White Plains in the last week. The Vikings head upstate this weekend for the Morabito tournament.
Panthers coach Joan Spedafino won her 400 th career game over the weekend in dramatic fashion — a no-hitter by ace Jess Calvini. Things are just going Rye Neck’s way this season.
The Dukes knocked off Highland on Monday, 7-1, to continue their tear through Section 9. Emily McDonough went 3 for 4 to push her season average to .659.
The Indians drop down the ranks following a surprising 1-0 loss to Carmel. They’ll have their chance to climb back up as they travel this weekend to Herkimer of the prestigious Morabito tournament.
The Pelicans enter the Top 10 after impressive wins over previously-ranked Eastchester and a streaking Valhalla and Harrison squads. The win over Valhalla came in their final at-bat.
It’s time to give the Bears their due. Their only losses have come to John Jay-East Fishkill and Ketcham, and they will make a serious run at a Top 3 seed in the Class A playoffs.
