SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — When it comes to building confidence and momentum, there is nothing like getting off to a great start in a new season. And as warmer weather finally made its long overdue entrance, several local teams began their spring quests on an auspicious note. Sullivan West’s baseball team 2-2 (2-1 OCIAA) took two out of three from Liberty 1-2 (1-2 OCIAA) in an opening Division IV series. After their 10-6 home opener, they bested the Indians in game two 5-4 as Gavin Owen walked, with the bases loaded in a game that ended with five walks.
