With inclement weather threatening, the Elk County Catholic and Johnsonburg softball teams were able to complete just enough of their game Monday afternoon to make it count.
The contest was originally scheduled to be a home game for the Ramettes, but the weather resulted in it being moved to Benzinger Park and changed to a home game for ECC. The Lady Crusaders ended up winning the weather-shortened contest 10-2 in five innings.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ One big inning was enough for Johnsonburg baseball to remain at zero losses for the season.
A six-run third inning helped the Johnsonburg Rams to a 7-2 win over Eisenhower Saturday at Knothole Park on a sunny day.
The Johnsonburg track and field teams competed at the Kane Invitational Saturday afternoon at Kane High School.
The Johnsonburg girls finished third in the team scoring with 49 points. ECC was the team champion with 123.5 points, Bradford was second at 72 points. Eisenhower and St. Marys tied for fourth at 45 points.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ It's not every day a softball team can score 16 runs in one inning but that's exactly what Johnsonburg softball did Thursday afternoon.
Johnsonburg scored 16 runs in the second inning and sent 20 hitters to the plate which would be enough to take a 16-0 win over Brookville at Knothole Park in Johnsonburg.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ A four-run eighth inning helped propel Brockway to an 11-7 victory over the Johnsonburg Ramettes in eight innings Tuesday afternoon at Knothole Park in Johnsonburg.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ Johnsonburg boys tennis lost 6-3 to Brockway in action Tuesday afternoon at Johnsonburg Area High School.
At No. 1 singles, James Matson won 6-3, 6-0 over Mason Walters of Johnsonburg. In the No. 2 singles match, Tyler Foradori defeated Tyler Martonik of Johnsonburg, 6-1, 6-3.
The St. Marys Area Lady Dutch softball team improved to 2-0 on the season as they defeated the Johnsonburg Ramettes 8-0 Monday afternoon at the SMAHS softball field. This was the season opener for the Ramettes.
The Lady Dutch scored at least one run in five of the six innings to record the win.
"This was our third time on a field this season," said St. Marys coach Bill Makufka.
"I thought we played a nice game but we still have the gym rust. We weren't up to game speed," said Makufka.
"I thought (Andria) Copelli threw well and we ran the bases well and had timely hitting," said Makufka.
The Elk Catholic Crusader tennis team improved to 2-1 on their young season with a 9-0 victory over the Johnsonburg Rams in a match played at Memorial and Benzinger Parks on Monday afternoon.
"It was a beautiful day and it was great to get outside and play a full match and some exhibition matches," said ECC head coach Aaron Straub. "It was good to play in relative warm conditions as we will have some tough matches in warm or hot weather, and it is a process to get your body acclimated to those conditions."
Straub added that he thought his squad played well.
