LAKE GEORGE - The young Lake George team, full of underclassmen, that caught everyone by surprise this year sealed an Adirondack League Division title - and the way they did it was in character: it was unexpected.
Vinnie Crocitto, the only Senior on the team, slugged two hits Monday to power the Warriors to a victory over Warrensburg to secure top spot in the Adirondack League's West Division.
Warrior pitcher Alex Liucci pitched six innings, allowing five hits yet recording eight strikeouts. He was also productive on offense, connecting with two singles. Catcher Jack Clark recorded a double in the game. Warrensburg had 7 hits, one more than the Warriors, but the hits weren't as timely as their opponents'.
The Warrior team, which is balanced and has a lot of good players rather than several stars like in recent seasons, developed chemistry in 2010 to win game after game, tallying 12-2 in league play. The team will meet up against East Division Champion Fort Ann in a repeat Adirondack League championship showdown on Friday.
GREENWICH - John Harrington hit a double in the first inning that scored two base-runners to give Greenwich the lead they'd maintain through a matchup May 15 with Warrensburg. Warrensburg's Mike Curtis had a single, a double and he scored a run in the Burgher effort that featured 6 hits, one more than Greenwich. He was aided by a double hit by Mike Curtis and a triple by Brendan Frye. John Joseph served on the mound for the Burghers.
With the loss, Warrensburg moved to a 9-8 record and Greenwich improved to 13-4. The Burghers, with solid hitting and smart pitching, are headed into Sectional competition next week.
