Patriot Guard honors fallen Moriah soldier

Saturday, June 7, 2014

AT THE WALL MORIAH Ñ Ssgt. Dain T. Venne, a Port Henry soldier killed in combat in November 2012, was honored by the Patriot Guard Riders of New York May 30. In a presentation of a memorial portrait and several poems, the Venne family met at Dain’s resting place to accept and thank the guard for honoring their son and brother. Ò I come up here every year and lay a wreath on Dain’s grave and others at Christmas,” said Dan Nolin, Senior ride captain. “I will continue to do this for as long as I live. This idea came from the brother of a soldier who served with Dain in Afghanistan and it was his idea to do this.” The portrait was erected by an artist in Texas and then transferred by the Region 4 and 5 color guard from Fonda to Port Henry. The Patriot Guard Riders of New York are a non-for-profit all volunteer group preforming missions throughout the state honoring veterans and their families. In a statement, the family wanted to honor the color guard for all they have and continue to do.

Teen father uses senior project to tell his story By Keith Lobdell TICONDEROGA Ñ High school senior Devin Davis spends his days from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. focused on the same things his peers are. Once the final school bells rings, Davis’ worries shift from that of average teenage high school student to those of a teenage father. “I’ve learned how to go into parent mode,” Davis said. “At school, I focus on what I am doing there and when I am home, I completely shift gears.”

“We do whatever it takes.”

Davis has been able to continue to excel in school while dealing with the challenges of being a teenage parent, which led him to decide on what he would do for his senior school project, which is required for each graduate at Ticonderoga Central School. “I want others to know what I go through,” Davis said. “There have been so many pregnancies this past year that have also been a motivator for this project. I want kids to know that it goes way beyond getting up every two hours to take care of your child. That is the easy part.”

What Davis has gone through started when he was 16, when he and his girlfriend found out she was pregnant. “We were in denial at first,” he said. Ò We had our suspicions early on until one night when we were lying down and we saw her stomach roll over.” Davis said the next step was to cope with the situation themselves. “We hid it for six months before we told our parents or anyone else,” he said. “We were afraid, we didn’t feel it was real at first. We never thought this could happen to us. My girlfriend would go to school wearing baggy clothes. During chorus, she would faint from standing on the risers too long. Everyone would ask us if she was pregnant, and we would just keep denying it because we were still trying to cope ourselves.” Brayden was born June 19, 2012. After what Davis described as some, “teenage drama,” he and his girlfriend reached a custody settlement. Ò We have a really good relationship and do things together now,” he said. Those experienced led Davis to reach out to RealityWorks, a company that makes baby simulators and helps provide a curriculum around learning how to take care of them. “I knew I wanted to find infant simulators for this project,” he said. “RealityWorks has a website that was easy to use and the simulators are so much more realistic. They are thermal-regulated and they need head support.” RealityWorks jumped behind Davis in support of the project, provided curriculum materials along with five simulators and pregnancy vests. “I was very impressed that RealityWorks took such an in-

terest in Devin and his project and donated over $5,000 in material and curriculum,” Superintendent John McDonald said. “He did a great job with this project and opened some people’s eyes to a problem in this area that we need to work on more.” Davis helped to teach the curriculum throughout the school year, programming the simulators. “I’ve had the experiences,” he said. “You can be told 100 times about these things but it doesn’t sink in like this does. We don’t think about the consequences. Not only do we talk about pregnancy through the program but also about sexually transmitted diseases and all of the other consequences.” As part of the project, Davis presented his program to members of the Ticonderoga School Board May 29 and said he hoped the program will continue at the school. “I would love to see the school be able to purchase 30 simulators,” Davis said. “The board really supports this idea,” McDonald said. “Devin is committed to making younger people aware of how much your life can change with one decision and the potential consequences that will follow. To have him speak about something like this is a lot more powerful then when it comes from a teacher or myself because it is his life that has been changed forever. He is now trying to get the junior class to pick up his message and carry it on into next year.” Davis said his message is simple, do not risk losing your teenage years. “Don’t be naive, live your adolescence and do not give it up,” he said. “I feel like I have lost my teenage years. I also feel there are times that I am depriving my son because of trying to go through the balancing act of school and parenting. Don’t rush your life.”

Past, present and future honored in Fourth grand marshal choices Future: Jay Hebert

By Keith Lobdell

Hebert, who will graduate from Ticonderoga High School in a couple of weeks, has excelled both in the classroom and on the track. He is seeking his fifth NYSPHSAA title in the 55 hurdles this weekend at the state meet while earning All American honors along the way. Hebert has signed on to attend Harvard University in the fall. “For me, it means a lot to be part of this community,” Hebert said. “To stand out as the recipient of the future grand marshal is a huge honor and it is great to be recognized like this. It’s everything just to be able to call Ticonderoga home and have all the amazing opportunities that I have been given here.” TICONDEROGA Ñ To help celebrate the 250 of Ticonderoga history as well as looking forward to the future, the Best Fourth in the North Committee has named not one, but three grand marshals for the annual July 4 parade. In staying with the theme of “Ticonderoga, The First 250 Years,” the festival committee decided to honor the “Past, Present and Future,” with their selections of the late Ray Thatcher, Mickey Fitzgerald and Jay Hebert. Ò We are honored to have three Grand Marshals in 2014 representing the past, present and future and have the opportunity to honor all of them for different reasons,” said Debbie Barber, Best Fourth In The North Chairperson. “I think this was a great idea the committee decided to implement as part of the theme for the parade.”

Burlington-based nonprofit Puppets in Education (PiE) received funding from Christopher Chevrolet Buick to support a full day of Puppets in Education puppet presentations and workshops on Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention at Ticonderoga Elementary School last Tuesday, May 6. The day of presentations was greeted by a receptive audience, inquisitive questions and a desire to receive the important skills and strategies that will support making healthy choices. In addition to supporting this day of presentations, Christopher Chevrolet Buick generously gifted 10 puppets to the school. The students cheered in delight when they saw the puppets. These puppets will allow students to continue their creative education and role-play pro-social and problem solving scenarios. Photo provided

Ti PD investigate canine remains By Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen

TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga Police officers responded to a report May 25 of canine remains washing ashore off Steamboat Landing, a private drive on Baldwin Road. “The dog is a small breed,” said Ticonderoga Police Chief Mark Johns. “It is approximately 2.5 feet long, resembling a Jack Russel Terrier.” Steamboat Landing is located on the southern boarder of Ticonderoga with Warren county to its south and Washington County directly across the waterway. Due to the decomposition of the body and lake currents, it is expected that the dog entered the water at a point south of Steamboat landing up to

seven days prior to being located. “This was disturbing, the officer on duty contacted me on scene,” said Johns. “Because of a rope tied around the mid-section of that dog, the circumstances of this dog’s death are potentially a criminal matter.” The Lake George Park Commisson is aiding the Ti PD in the investgation. The Lake George Park Commission Boat Patrol was contacted and advised of the matter, in the event that the investigation needs to be transfered to another jurisdiction. Due to the graphic nature of the body, photographs of the animal will not be released. “This remains an active investigation, and anyone who may have information which could assist are asked to contact the Ticonderoga Police Department at 585-2205,” said Johns.

Command Performance celebrates 25th anniversary with dance program By Keith Lobdell TICONDEROGA Ñ For the past 25 years, Marge Cross has been teaching students of all ages the art of dance out of her house at 176 The Portage. To celebrate, Command Performance Dance Studio will host a 25th anniversary recital at the Ticonderoga High School Auditorium Friday, June 13, 7 p.m., with participants from Ticonderoga, Moriah, Crown Point, Putnam and Hague performing tap, hip/ hop, modern, ballet and acro dance routines. For Cross, dance has been a life-long ambition. “I started dance when I was three years old and I loved it,” she said. “I always talked about having a dance stu-

dio and then one day when I got home my husband had knocked out a wall in our house and was creating a studio. He said I had talked about it long enough and it was time to start doing it.” Cross said her first class in 1989 had 13 students and has expanded to a roster of near 150 pupils for the 25th anniversary. Classes are held Monday through Thursday (Cross said Friday is time for her family) with classes held throughout the day. Ò I teach preschool students in the mornings and then the other dance classes in the afternoon,” Cross said. Throughout the quarter of a century, Cross said that while dance styles evolve, the basics remain the same. “I feel each new generation has their ideas to add to the art of dance,” she said. “The basics are what they have always been, though, and that is why it will keep evolving. The success of this studio over the past 25 years is not mine but the

Pictures from 20th anniversary show students’ hard work and dedication as well as their parents support.” The 25th anniversary recital will include all of the members of the Command Performance Studio performing individual and group numbers, along with the annual “special” performance. Ò The special routine is al-

ways a big hit,” Cross said. “I will see people in town and they will ask what I am planning for this year, and they will have to come and find out.” While keeping the performance under wraps, Cross did divulge that it would feature, “a very talented group of dads.”

Resource officers: A price the Why would anyone want these jobs? county and schools can’t afford


ssex County Sheriff Richard Cutting is making the push yet again to re-visit the notion of deputies patrolling the halls of area schools with the designation ‘resource officer.’ Following a slew of tragic incidents of school violence — from Sandy Hook to Alton, IL — many districts and municipalities have been quick to make the emotional decision to place full-time law enforcement personnel in the hallways of their buildings. While Essex County school’s have been fortunate thus far, we are not blind enough to think that a tragedy is impossible in our own back yard; however, is a $72,000 county or district funded price tag the answer to maintaining a safe educational environments for our youth? In our opinion, the answer is no. The Essex County Board of Supervisors Ways and Means Committee voted 10-8 recently to allow Sherriff Cutting to apply for a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant that would pay up to 75 percent of the salary and benefits for four new resource officers for area schools. The remaining 25 percent of the funding would ultimately be the responsibility of the county. At a time when the county board has struggled to put a lid on spending, how can an unallocated $72,000 be a feasible request? In our opinion, it simply is not. From 1999 to 2003 resource officers patrolled the halls of schools in Ticonderoga, Moriah, Keene, Crown Point, Schroon Lake, Minerva, Newcomb, Wesport and Willsboro. Cutting’s request comes without a stitch of anecdotal or statistical information from the past justifying the need for these officers. It is our opinion that if resource officers are seen as a must-have by the school districts it should be a district-by-district decision and it should be paid for from their own monetary resources. With district budgets barely passing in some places it seems like a reach, a far reach. The argument can be made that with a 13 deputy department there is no reason deputies can not make stops into these districts as part of their regular routine and work day, without the need for more officers, more hours and more funding. The schools in our communities have maintained a manageable level of safety in coordinating with local law enforcement about safe practices. In Ticonderoga a multi unit drill was conducted earlier in the year to educate law enforcement, first responders, teachers and students alike to respond to internal and external threats. Efforts like those listed above would be beneficial to all districts throughout the county, but asking schools or taxpayers to pick up a tab just shy of 100K is not. Student and child safety is always at the forefront of conversation when tragedies like the one in Sand Hook occur but we can not simply continue to write checks that we have a hard time cashing. While a sum of this amount may seem like a small price to pay to deter possible criminal acts, the story will be exceedingly different in the years to come when budgetary constraints become increasingly more dire. Schools have already implemented a number of safety precautions, including zero tolerance policies, locking doors and taking any and all threats in a more serious manner. The coordination with local law enforcement already serves as a deterrent to crime — a full-time, taxpayer funded bouncer is simply not a safety net we can afford. Ñ

Letters to the Editor

Against pols stand To the Times of Ti: Elise Stefanik’s sales pitch follows the agenda of the Republicans in our Federal government. She boasts about being a close friend and ally of Paul Ryan and touts her desire to repeal the Affordable Care Act or as she puts it “Obama Care.” If repealed it would mean seniors would lose several benefits afforded by the Act. Medicare benefits have been expanded by the ACA saving about $5,000 for drugs over a 10-year period. Almost 8 million seniors have already saved close to 10 billion dollars on prescription drugs alone. The Act made it possible for Medicare beneficiaries to receive many preventive services with no out-of-pocket costs. Flu shots, as well as no-cost screenings for cancer, diabetes and other chronic diseases along with an annual wellness visit are free. 37 million seniors have received at least one of these preventive services with no out-of-pocket costs in 2013. Medicare Part B premiums have been kept at 2013 levels again due to the Affordable Care Act that Elise Stefanik wants to take away from seniors. In 2014, Medicare beneficiaries in the donut hole receive a 52.5 percent discount on brand-name drugs and a 28 percent discount on generic drugs. Seniors who reach the donut hole will save, on average, about $1,265 per beneficiary. I have to ask Ms. Stefanik why she and her fellow Republicans want to take these benefits from seniors who are currently receiving them! Admittedly there are a few problems with the Act but “Throwing the baby away with the wash water” doesn’t make sense. The benefits outweigh the few problems and they would be easily fixable if Republicans were not hell bent on saying no and came up with a few good ideas! Elise Stefanik is nothing more than a carbon copy of Matt Doheny and every other Republican who have only the business com-

munity in mind. Being born and raised in Upstate New York doesn’t mean anything when one is more concerned about business than the man or woman working at Walmart, the lumber mill or any other job. Not only should voters reject Ms. Stefanik but anyone else with her thinking. We have had enough of those who think the middle class is ignorant to what is happening in Washington. Before voting ask yourself what will you do if the Affordable Care Act is repealed? Your drug cost, Part B premiums, co-pays and quality of care will all suffer. Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga

The only source of revenue our community publications receive to offset the cost of print, delivery and overhead is paid notices and advertisements. All candidate endorsements must now run either in the form of an advertisement or a paid endorsement notice and include the name of the individual making the endorsement. The paid endorsement notice can be purchased for $15 for up to 50 words, or .25 cents per word thereafter. A paid advertisement will be based on standard advertising rates taking into consideration size and frequency according to the current rate card at the open advertising rate.

Montcalm Mile registration now open; prize money up for grabs TICONDEROGA — Runners are now registering for the annual Montcalm Mile in Ticonderoga, which will feature prize money and computer chip scoring for the first time in 2014. The race will be held Friday, July 4, at 1:45 p.m., just prior to the Ticonderoga’s annual Best Fourth in the North parade. To facilitate the new scoring system, runners are asked to register for the race online at distance-running-races/montcalm-mile-2014 Entry fee is $15 for the elite race, $10 for adults in the recreational race and $5 for children age 18 and younger in the recreational race. Limited race day registration starts at 12:30 p.m. at Wicker Ford. For entry information contact Fred Herbst at 13 Lindbergh Landing, Ticonderoga 12883 or by Email at Race information can also be found online at the LaChute Road Runners Club website — and at With a men’s course record of 3 minutes, 54 seconds, the Montcalm Mile is believed to be the fastest mile anywhere in New York and Vermont, outside New York City. “The Montcalm Mile has become the premier athletic contest in the North Country,” Herbst, race director, said. “Having attracted record fields each of the past five years, we expect more than 300 runners in 2014.

“Our goal is make the race one of the most competitive events in the North Country while remaining a fun, family-friendly race,” he said. To accomplish that goal the Montcalm Mile will feature two divisions — elite for men who run a sub-6-minute mile and women who run sub-7 along with a recreational division for other runners. The elite division will offer $2,300 in prize money. The men’s and women’s winners will receive $500, second place $300, third $200, fourth $100 and fifth $50. The Montcalm Mile course records are 3 minutes, 54 seconds set by Lee Berube in the men’s race and 4:41 set by Dana Bush in the women’s race. It’s a downhill course that virtually assures runners of personal bests and attracts most of the region’s top athletes. Also attracting runners is the fact the race is run minutes prior to Ticonderoga’s annual Fourth of July parade, which means hundreds of spectators line the course offering encouragement. The Montcalm Mile, the largest participation event in Ticonderoga every year, will also become the first Ti race to use computer chip timing to score results in 2014. The LaChute Road Runners Club, which sponsors the race, has contracted with the Albany Running Exchange for computerized chip timing and scoring. Awards will be presented to all finishers. Age group results will be posted on the web site

The LaChute Road Runners has sponsored running events for decades in Ticonderoga while raising money to support youth running. The LaChute Road Runners has financed trips for the Ticonderoga High School cross country and track teams, purchased equipment for the scholastic harriers, provided monetary assistance to teens attending camps and awards the annual Duane Crammond Memorial Scholar-

ship. The club has awarded $12,000 in college scholarships the past 10 years. Sponsors of the 2014 Montcalm Mile include Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union, International Paper Co. Ticoneroga mill, DeFranco Landscaping, Circle Court Motel, Ticonderoga Elks, Trout House Village, Walmart of Ticonderoga, DeFranco Engineering and the Times of Ti.

Diane Dickson, president of the Northern Lake George Rotary Club, presents a check for $300 to sponsor two Arts Trek programs to Cathie Burdick, executive director of the Ticonderoga Festival Guild.

Arts Treks programs take place at the K of C Pavilion on Wednesday mornings at 10:15 a.m. and children of all ages are invited, free of charge. Photo provided

New shop on Broad Street features art ‘Made in the Mountains’ By Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen

PORT HENRY — A craft cooperative, of sorts, is set to host a grand opening in downtown Port Henry June 7. The collaboration of Jackie Viestenz, Sue McHone and Linda Smyth will showcase local artisan products including pottery, photography, woodworking, literature, knitted products, quilts and an assortment of other locally crafted goods. The store, a year and a half in the making, came about when Viestenz was approached by community representatives with an idea of a shop or storefront to showcase local talent. “I was approached by the building owner (at 3259 Broad Street, Port Henry) and talked with local members in other communities about a co-op,” said Viestenz. This idea evolved into a consignment spot for artisans to display and sell their work in a prime location offering tourist and foot traffic. “This was good timing for me,” said McHone, a Port Henry native. “I wanted to move back from Boston and here I am

able to work on the accounting systems and things of that nature.” McHone also sighted help from community members as vital in breathing life into the shop. As part as the revitalization effort in Port Henry, a Honeybee grant was secured by the shop entrepreneurs. Trees and signage have been added to the streets as a means to improve the aesthetics and boost the draw to the area businesses. Store hours will be noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and by appointment on alternate days. Appointments may be made by contacting the shop at 557-5070. Featuring four artisans to date the cooperative is still open to more consigners. “We are in the heart of the village,” said Smyth. “We are hoping to be involved in the chain of art related displays in the area with places in Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Moriah and Essex. People can make a trip or a weekend out of the local art stopping in each place.” Linda Smyth, Jackie Viestenz and Sue Mchone owners of ‘Made In The Mountains’ set to open June 7 Photo by Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen

United funding front for Schroon businesses By Keith Lobdell SCHROON — Patrick Siler is hoping that a unified front will help his local businesses and organizations when its comes to seeking state funding. Siler, the Executive Director of the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce, is currently working with several entities throughout the town to seek funding through the North Country Regional Economic Development Council, part of the new state funding program. “We are making a push for a marketing effort centered around arts and culture,” Siler said. “We are looking to coordinate

with the different entities to show that our efforts working in concert will have a broader impact then working independently.” Siler said the chamber is working with a number of places to help them receive individual and collective funding, including the Schroon Lake Historical Society, Schroon Lake Arts Council, the Adirondack Shakespeare Company, Inn on Schroon Lake, Seagle Music Colony, Strand Theater, Giant Mountain Studios and the Town of Schroon. “The town is looking at a strategic master plan and we want to help with that,” Siler said. “The chamber has an emphasis of renovating our building which will help

us and them in marketing as a group.” Overall, Siler said the chamber wants visitors to the area to know that there is a wide range of arts and cultural events that have mass appeal. Ò We have never had a unifying push to show how broad the arts and cultural offerings in this region are,” Siler said. “Even if they have heard about Seagle, they may be interested in the Shakespeare company or in the summer concert series. There are a lot of opportunities to create multi-place visits for people here.” Siler said the deadline for the next round of economic development council grants is mid-June, which makes for a busy month of organizing.

Sentinel baseball, softball score 2-1 section title victories

By Keith Lobdell PLATTSBURGH — For those who appreciate solid pitching and defense and all the pressure that comes with a championship on the line, the Class C baseball and softball championship games over the past two days were a dream come true. Even more so if you were a fan of the Ticonderoga Sentinels. Ryan Trudeau and Hannah Ross dominated on the mound for their respective teams and Jarryn Granger and Maura Jebb played walk-off heroes as both the baseball and softball teams scored 2-1 victories: the boys against Northern Adirondack and girls against Lake Placid, the third straight year the Lady Sentinels have scored a walk-off win against the Lady Blue Bombers to capture the Class C crown.


Tied 1-1 heading into the seventh inning May 28, Ross twice battled back from having a runner on third with only one out in the inning to keep Lake Placid off the board. In the seventh, Ross got ground outs to the shortstop and pitcher while getting grounders to second and third to end the eighth. I was nervous at the start of the game,” Ross said. “I have faith in everyone that was behind me making the plays that needed to be made. When we pull together as a team we can make it work.” That set the stage for the bottom of the eighth, when Jebb came to the mound after going 0 for 3 in the first seven.

“I was on the ball all night I just needed to get it to the right spot,” Jebb said of her ball hit deep into the hole on the left side of the field which she beat out for an infield hit. Haleigh Wright (2 for 4, double) followed with a single to put runners on first and second. Nicole Fuller, who filled in at catcher with ease, then hit a ball to second base for a force out, sending Jebb and Wright to third and second, respectively. With Sadie Hamel at the plate, the Lake Placid catcher was unable to handle a ball in the dirt and after a small hesitation, Jebb broke for home. “The first thing I am always doing is listening to my coach,” Jebb said about the decision. “I am always role playing in my mind what I would do in different situations. I wasn’t planning on going but my coach yelled at the last second.” After sliding into home, Jebb said she could not see or hear the umpire make the final call. “I looked back at my coach to see the expression on her face and that’s when I knew we won,” she said. After walking two with one scoring in the top of the first, Ross followed with seven scoreless innings, striking out six while scattering seven hits. The Sentinels tied the game in the bottom of the fourth when Savannah Bezon (1 for After giving upa run in the first inning, Hannah Ross shut out the Lake 3) led off with a double.

Moor lined a ball up the middle of the field to score Bezon. In the game, Moore was 2 for 2 with a stolen base and RBI. She was also hit by a pitch. “It was a sigh of relief for me to get that run home,” Moore said. “We had been hitting the ball well in the game, but I had not been hitting that well so it was a nice surprise.” The Lady Sentinels next play St. Lawrence June 5 at Cardinal Park in Plattsburgh, with the winner facing Section II’s Greenwich June 5, 4:30 p.m., in Malta.

Dorsett said. The game was then decided on the next pitch. “Jarryn hit the first pitch he saw to left field for the game winning RBI and walk off win,” Dorsett said. Dorsett said while their game against Plattsburgh High was important to keep them sharp, it was their experience that was key to playing in close games. Ò Our entire season prepared us for that moment not just one game,” he said. “We are confident heading into sectionals in that we have a lot of players with a great deal of experience being in regional play. We also have played some tough opponents this year in our league and while south so we feel we can compete.” The Sentinels committed a pair of errors in the game, something Dorsett wants to eliminate in the next round of play. “Heading into regionals we needed to be crisper on defense because we are going to be tested,” he said. “In addition, our offense needs to work hard on making good contact with the ball so that we can put some pressure on their defense to make difficult rather than routine plays. “To win in regional play we are going to need to play at our highest level of the season,” Dorsett added. “That is what we have been pushing ourselves to do everyday in practice so I know we can adjust to the situation.” The Sentinels face Hoosic Valley Friday, June 6, 4 p.m. at Chip Cummings Field in Plattsburgh. The winner will face Brushton-Moira the following day on the winners “home” field (Cummings for Ticonderoga) the following day at noon if in Plattsburgh.


A day earlier, May 27, It was the Sentinel baseball team that scored first as Trudeau drove home Mark Donohue on a fielders choice in the first inning. Trudeau surrendered his lone run of the game in the fifth, overall surrendering only three hits while walking two and striking out nine. Ò Ryan Trudeau came up very big on multiple occasions,” head coach Dan Dorsett said. “He was able to get out of every inning except one with runners in scoring position.” In the bottom of the seventh, Dom Banish battled with an 0-2 count before hitting a ball to left field which fell.

Errors doom Moriah as they fall in sectional final to Bombers By Keith Lobdell PLATTSBURGH — While seven errors hurt the Moriah Vikings in their Section VII/Class D championship game against Lake Placid May 29, it was what happened in the bottom of the second that may have turned the game against them. The Vikings dropped an 11-5 decision to the Blue Bombers, a game that was tied heading into the bottom of the second when Tom Rancour hit a single up the middle to lead off the bottom half of the inning. Jordan Greenough was then walked and Billy Larrow was hit by a pitch, loading the bases without the Blue Bombers recording an out. However, the Vikings came away from the inning empty handed as a pop-out to the first baseman and two strikeouts ended any hope of an early score. In the next half inning, the Blue Bombers scored six runs, capitalizing on five Moriah errors to give them the stakes they would need to win the sectional title. “It was not a cleanly played game,” head

coach Casey Nephew said after the game. “They took more advantage of our errors. It hurt when we did not score in the second because they came back and scored six runs and that was not good for morale. We battled back with four in the bottom half, but the energy was not there after that.” In the bottom of the third, CJ Raymond singled and scored on a throwing error which allowed Austin Allen to reach third base. Allen then scored on an error that allowed Chris Clarke to reach third, who then scored on a throwing error during the same play. Greenough then scored on a fielders choice. Raymond scored the only other run of the game for Moriah off an RBI single by Austin. Raymond, Allen, Rancour and Greenough had the lone singles in the game for the Vikings. On the mound, Clarke allowed only a pair of earned runs, both in the seventh. He allowed 11 hits while striking out seven and giving up only one walk on 107 pitches. “Chris threw a lot in sectionals and had great control,” Nephew said.

Lady Panthers scores ninth consecutive Class D Crown

By Keith Lobdell PLATTSBURGH — Aggressiveness on the base paths and flawless defense helped the Crown Point Lady Panthers score their ninth straight Section VII/Class D softball championship against Schroon Lake May 31. The Panthers did not commit an error behind pitcher Maria Malone, who struck out eight batters over seven innings while scattering seven hits and a lone walk to record the championship-clinching win on the mound. “That is what we practice for all year,” Malone said about the defense behind her. “We would not be where we are without defense. It is a big accomplishment to slow down the Schroon Lake bats and we have worked hard all year for this title.” “Maria is a great pitcher,” catcher Logan Harrington said. “I can always depend on her to throw strikes when we need them. I was very impressed with our defense.” “Defensively we played very well and we have been this way all year,” head coach Mike Ross said. “Our defense is how we got here.”

In the opening frame, Abigail Veverka (1-for3, walk, run) led off with a single for the Wildcats, advancing to second on a Dakota Gadway (2-for-3) single and then scoring on a Desiree Lanoue RBI single (1-for-3, RBI). Crown Point responded in the bottom half of the first as Brittany Foote led off with a double and took third after getting caught in a pickle. Foote scored when Hunter Spaulding reached on a fielding error, the first of six committed by the Wildcats in the game. Spaulding scored second then scored on a RBI single off the bat of Mara Vradenburg, who was thrown out at third, suffering an injury that took her out of the game. The teams exchanged zeroes until the bottom of the fifth inning, where Foote again got things started with a walk. Spaulding and Amanda Wolf (2-for-4, run, RBI) followed with base hits as Wolf drove in Foote for the third run for the Panthers. Abigale Carpenter, who subbed in for Vradenburg, then drove in Spaulding on a sacrifice bunt and Logan Harrington hit a double to score Wolf to give the Panthers a 5-1 lead. In the bottom of the sixth, Foote (2-for-2, 2 walks, 3 runs) scored her third run of the night after reaching on a walk.

“We always want to get runs early in the game,” Foote said. “Brittany has not struck out all season and that is why she is at the top of the order,” Ross said. “She has a lot of power but this year she has also hit for a high average.” Spaulding (2-for-4, 3 runs, 1 stolen base) also scored in on a Carpenter RBI single (1-for-2, 2 RBI) to cap the Panthers scoring at seven. Malone added a single to the Panthers offensive attack. The Wildcats were unable to get a runner in scoring position until the sixth and again in the seventh. Kiana Fiore and Molly Wisser added singles, while Brooke Wheeler had a double in the seventh. Shawna Fiore, who was the winning pitcher in the first two rounds of sectionals, gave up 10 hits while only getting one strikeout. We knew that she could throw strikes and put some other people in the best positions we could in the field,” head coach Jeff Cutting said. Ò We needed Kiana (Fiore) to play shortstop in order to get this far.” Cutting said the game came down to the plays made in the field. “I really felt like if a couple more balls drop

in, it would have made a big difference in the game,” Cutting said. “We felt like we could put the ball in play, it was just unfortunate that they all went right at somebody. We thought we had them where we wanted them but I think their experienced showed in the last two innings.” Cutting said the experience for the team was “really huge,” especially with many young players at key positions. “I can’t think of anyone from Schroon Lake that has gone out to watch a softball sectional final because we have never been here,” Cutting said. “Now that we know where this place is, I think there is a lot of people who want to come back.” For the Panthers, they will next face Fort Ann out of Section II Friday, June 6, 4:30 p.m. at Cardinal Park in Plattsburgh. “We have seen them before,” Ross said. “I do not have a plan of attack. We will go out there and play our game and hopefully things will work out.

Snyder, Hebert, Silliman, lead way to state meet in Syracuse By Keith Lobdell TICONDEROGA — A trio of local athletes will make their way to Syracuse this weekend to compete for and, in one case, defend NYSPHSAA track and field championships. Halie Snyder, the EKMW Lady Emu standout qualified in a trio of state-level events. She won the 100 in a time of 12.54 seconds, seven-tenths ahead of the second place finishers.

Her third qualification, in winning the 200 with a time of 25.14 seconds, was four-tenths better then the next-fastest runner. Two other qualifiers made the state meet in the same event, as defending state champion Jay Hebert of Ticonderoga won the 110 hurdles in a time of 14.54 seconds, one second ahead of teammate Shawn Silliman, who also qualified for states. Silliman was four-tenths ahead of the third place finisher. EKMW had a pair of boys advance to the state championships, as Jonathan Gay won the 800 in 2:01.54 while Kyle VanBuren advanced in the high jump with a mark of 5-8.
