Stately appearances

Liberty’s Kane Sauchuk is heading to states in the 110 and 400 hurdles.

Sullivan West’s softball team, which had just clinched its second Division IV title in three years with a 7-1 league mark and was the number-one seed in Class B, suffered a 19-3 loss to O’Neill. Liberty’s girls lost to O’Neill 10-2 two days prior. O’Neill went on to lose the title game to Highland 4-2. Liberty’s boys lost to Burke 8-5 on a three-run walkoff homer from Eagle Tom Sullivan. Livingston Manor, the NYS defending Class D champions, lost 4-3 by surrendering a bases-loaded walk to John A. Coleman Catholic in the Section 9 title game. The Manor girls who are defending state champs in Class D softball move on to play Deposit. Tri-Valley baseball and Livingston Manor softball are the only teams left alive in Sullivan County as of this writing.

At the Section 9 track and field state qualifier, a number of county athletes qualified for the state meet at Cicero North High School in Syracuse on June 8 and 9. They include the following: Liberty’s Kane Sauchuck in the 110 hurdles (15.48) and the 400 hurdles (56.25); Eldred’s Hunter Proscia in the 3000 Steeplechase (9:53.64); Sullivan West’s Mitch Paciga in the high jump (5-10); Liberty’s Kenny Jaycox in the long jump (21.7.25); Fallsburg’s Michael Robinson in the triple jump (44-9); Liberty’s Mike Hinton in the discus (143-7); Liberty’s Peter Koval in the javelin, which is not a state event (144-5); Fallsburg’s Candhace Forrest in the 100 (13.03); Tri-Valley’s Mareena DiMilia in the 100 hurdles (16.03) and the shot put (34-10); Tri-Valley’s Katlynn Greffrath in the pentathlon (2230 points); Tri-Valley’s Dominique Darby in the shot put (36-1); Eldred’s Breanna Brucher in the pole vault (10-3). Tri-Valley’s Jimmy Bernstein missed the state meet by two hundredths of a second in the 1600 but recorded a PR of 4:26.24, which qualifies him for Eastern States. Eldred’s Hunter Proscia missed out in the 3200 by four hundredths of a second.
