Masuk still in search of a title after Class L loss

on
Along a surprising run through the Class L tournament as a 14-seed, Masuk relied on strong pitching and timely hitting. The Panthers had their ace, junior Chris Lindquist, on the hill for Saturday’s final, with sophomore Cameron Kovachik available in relief if needed.

Behind big inning, Amity moves on in Class LL playoffs

on
Defending LL state champion Amity isn’t your average No. 17 seed. That’s the seed, however, that the Spartans were slotted in after an inconsistent regular season.
