Bolton edges Wells in marathon game

Bolton 6,

Wells 5

BOLTON LANDING - It took 10 innings, but Bolton prevailed Monday over Wells in a suspenseful game played in front of a home crowd.

A series of Eagle singles in the 10th inning made the difference in the game. Charlotte Caldwell was placed at second under the tie-breaker rule, and Taylor Barrack sent her to third base with a solid single.

Sonja Hess then sent home Charlotte Caldwell with a one-bagger to clinch the game in the bottom of the 10th.

Wells had tied the score in the top of the seventh followed by three empty-handed at-bats. With the win, Bolton moved to 8-1 in the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference.

Sensational Sophomore pitcher Tori Persons tallied a pitching record this year equal to her team's. The senior leadership, which included playmaker Taylor Cronquist as Catcher, kept Wells at bay to wrap up the game until the 10th when Bolton edged them out. Hitting doubles in the victory were Persons, Cronquist, Cady, and Charlotte Caldwell.

Lake George 17,

Warrensburg 2

LAKE GEORGE - Warrior pitcher Katelyn Callahan, one of the most talented p;layers ever on the mound in the Adirondack League, demonstrated her dominance Monday as she struck out 13 in a no-hit victory against Northway rivals Warrensburg.

Callahan slugged two doubles and Molly Blackmon contributed another in the league victory. Three-sport Senior Sara Anderson whapped three hits, Rachael Pliscofsky hit two singles and Taylor Dawson scored four runs against the Burghers, who are slated to be competing in Sectionals this next week behind an 8-6 season record.

Hartford 2,

Warrensburg 0

WARRENSBURG - Hartford's Christina Petteys, considered the No. 2 pitcher in the Adirondack League, struck out 12 Burghers and allowed merely one hit as the Tanagers won the Warrensburg Trapper Classic softball tournament 2-0 on Saturday. Pitcher Rachael Simkins, however, deserves plenty of credit for keeping Hartford's hot bats at bay in the low-scoring game.
