Season Highlights: “Beating Fallsburg 10-2 (on May 16),” said first-year coach Kurt Scheibe Jr. “Also, coming back to beat Tuxedo (5-4 on May 24 with three runs in the seventh) to force a playoff (for the Division IV title against Fallsburg).
“We had a lot of big wins,” he added. “We beat Tri-Valley twice and they’ve had one of the best teams around in the past few years.”
Disappointments: “Losing to Fallsburg three times,” Scheibe said. “In the sectionals, nothing went right. In the [Division IV] championship game (a 6-4 loss to Fallsburg on June 5) we had the tying runs on second and third with one out [in the seventh] and failed to score.”
Final Thoughts: “If anyone told us before the season we would get as far as we did I would have taken it,” Scheibe said. “But once you go to [sectionals and championship games] you want to win. I had a good time in my first year of coaching. I enjoyed it.”
