Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Happy April Fools Day everyone! Watch out for the pranksters today! I wish I was clever enough to try to write a story about local sports that would fool everyone. I am sure I could come with something good if I had the time.
For now though I will justy stick to writing the local sports as is.
Thank you for all of the positive feedback yesterday on my story about Cameron Brink of Stanford basketball and her connection to the area. Her mother as I mentioned in the story is former Hadley-Luzerne star girls basketball player Michelle Bain. I hope the story lets you watch the NCAA Women's Final Four a little differently.
Corinth Softball Opens With Win
Tegan Grady got it down in the circle and at the plate as Corinth opened their high school softball season with a 12-8 win over Galway in a non-league contest.
Grady struck out nine in earning the pitching win. She also went 3 for 4 at the plate with a trio of RBIs.
Galway smacked a couple of home runs but it was not enough to stave off the Tomahawks. Corinth led 7-2 after two innings 10-6 though four, holding on for the victory.
Sarah Pita was 2 for 3 with two doubles and three RBIs. Caitlyn Crossman tripled for the Tomahawks.
Corinth is 1-0. Galway is 0-1.
