Virtually every kid has dreamed of this scenario playing whiffle ball in their backyard at some point or another, and on Monday night at Lake Region the Rangerâ€™s Haley Kennedy was livinâ€™ the dream. Kennedyâ€™s high chop infield hit scored Chelsea Poginy from third base, giving the Rangers a thrilling 7-6 come from behind victory over the Lyndon Aâ€™s.
ST. JOHNSBURY- Down by five runs entering the final inning, and weary from over four hours of play, the Lake Region Rangers Babe Ruth softball team rallied for seven runs to take a 17-15 decision over the St. Johnsbury Dodgers at Leonardâ€™s Field in St. J. Saturday afternoon.
The Rangers-Dodgers match-up was the second of a two-team doubleheader for the Rangers, who squeaked by the St. Johnsbury Red Sox 9-8 earlier in the day.
If you have driven by the NCUHS Varsity soccer field recently, you may have seen the new soccer dug-outs! The previous shelters had served their purpose well, and after almost 20 years the time had come to replace them. Rather than spend money on dug-outs of the same collapsible design, the decision was made to put the same money into permanent sheds. Gone are the days are setting up and breaking down the old structures, while the safety component of not having to move the solid but very heavy roof, will be well appreciated.
BARREâ€“The Lake Region Rangers girls Babe Ruth softball squad improved their summer record to 3-0 Wednesday, with a drizzly 12-6 victory over Barre.
