Jun. 12—Just days after winning the Tri-Valley League title, the Schenevus softball team became Section IV Champions as the Dragons defeated Marathon 7-1 in Friday's Class D final.
Cassie Snyder was the winning pitcher in the circle for Schenevus, striking out four batters and allowing just four hits and one run. She also registered a two-run single as part of a four-run sixth inning that gave the Dragons some breathing room before the final inning.
Liana Darling finished 2-for-4 with an RBI while Elizabeth Hoag also had a hit. Schenevus was able to capitalize on six Marathon errors in the victory.
Marathon got on the board first in the third inning thanks to a solo home run by Brie Carter, who went 2-for-2 in the game. But Schenevus bounced back to take the lead with two runs in the bottom of the third.
Brooke Morsey went 2-for-3 for Marathon, while Kaitlyn Mitchell recorded three strikeouts in the losing effort.
Elmira Notre Dame 2
Deposit-Hancock won the Section IV Class C Softball Championship after defeating Elmira Notre Dame 5-2 on Friday.
The Eagles raced out to an early lead in the first inning with five runs and held on to it for the rest of the game. Riley Martin and Kayla Eldridge both went 2-for-3 at the plate for the Eagles while Alaina Smith and Haleigh Weyracuh both had doubles.
"This was the first year that teams were combined and I'm really proud of the girls coming together for a potent offense," Eagles coach Dan Briggs said.
Deposit-Hancock finishes its season at 18-1
