Mahopac Cops 1st Section 1 Title, Lakeland Tops Yorktown, TZ for 2nd

We have seen great individual pitchers hailing from the Westchester/Putnam regions of Section 1 before, but Mahopac senior Shannon Becker and juniors, Stella Bale of Lakeland, and Maya Servedio of Yorktown, form one of the finest triumvirates we’ve ever seen in this neck of the woods. The three chuckers combined to strike out 78 batters over the course of four championship games last weekend; Bale combining for 40 in the Section 1 Class A-1/A-2 finals in wins over Yorktown and Tappan Zee, Becker dropping 18 likes flies in the Indians’ 1-0 Class AA title victory over North Rockland and Servedio sitting down 20 in a losing champion effort at Lakeland.

Carmel Mashes, Bashes Down Championship Door

Rams Win 1st Section 1 Class AA Title in 31 Years; White Plains, Byram Hills Fall in Late Rounds. Imagine hitting above .400 all season, hovering near .460 at season’s end, yet somehow flying under the radar: Welcome to the 2021 spring of Matt Demme. The All-Section Carmel senior, playing in the shadows of UConn-bound senior Jack Sullivan and Iona-bound senior Anthony Febo, helped carry Coach Joe Hackert’s fourth-seeded Rams to their first Section 1 Class AA championship in 31 years last Saturday when visiting Carmel flirted with first-inning disaster only to post a 5-1 win over perennial powerhouse Roy C. Ketcham, the No.2 seed.

Looking Back in Philipstown

150 Years Ago (June 1871) Asa Truesdell lost his left arm at the shoulder after he was hit by a train near the Cold Spring station. Truesdell had been walking home from Fishkill Landing [Beacon] when a freight train stopped at the Breakneck tunnel. Assuming it would stop for water at Cold Spring, he jumped aboard. When he realized the train did not plan to stop at the water tank, he leaped to the wooden tank platform, which gave way. He was spun around by the train as he fell and his arm went over the rail.
