District Softball: Anna Edwards lifts Avon over Amherst, into matchup with Westlake

AVON LAKE — Anna Edwards, Avon’s southpaw pitcher, has thrown one no-hitter this year. It came in the Eagles’ win over Westlake in the season opener. What a coincidence. Edwards will get a chance to do it again at 4:30 this afternoon when Avon (19-8) tangles with Westlake for the Division I district championship. If Read More…

District Baseball: Robbie Bliss pitches, hits Wellington past Rootstown and into final


COPLEY TWP. — Wellington applied pressure early and never faltered Thursday in a 6-3 Division III district semifinal victory over Rootstown. The Dukes will face Akron Manchester today after it knocked off Elyria Catholic 10-1. First pitch is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. back at Copley High School. At the heart of the win for Wellington Read More…

District Baseball: Tie turns into lopsided loss for Elyria Catholic after 9-run 7th inning by Akron Manchester


COPLEY TWP. — A slow drip into a raging current, a whisper into a scream or a spark that turned into a roaring fire. There are many ways to describe what happened to Elyria Catholic on Thursday in the top of the seventh inning of its Division III district semifinal at Copley High School. Once Read More…

District Softball: Ally Kamody’s clutch double in 7th lifts Elyria Catholic to 1st district title


AVON LAKE — Trailing by a run with two outs and two runners on in the seventh inning — and history knocking on Elyria Catholic’s door — it was no surprise that Ally Kamody felt the pressure of the moment. “Ally came up to me and said, ‘I’m nervous, Coach,’” Ryan Minney said. “I said, Read More…

District Baseball: Missed opportunities haunt Amherst in defeat to St. Edward


LORAIN — Amherst had plenty of opportunities, but in the Division I district final game against St. Edward the Comets were left waiting for the big hit that never came. St. Edward sophomore starter Quinn Lavelle gave up nine hits and walked a pair of batters, but Amherst could never take advantage, stranding 11 runners Read More…

District Baseball: Miscues sink Vermilion in loss to Padua

PARMA HTS. — Vermilion was its own worst enemy in Wednesday’s Division II district semifinal game against Padua at Tri-C West, dropping a 3-2 decision, despite allowing just three hits. Padua (14-13) advances to an all-Parma district championship after Holy Name knocked off Firelands, 4-3, in the first game of the night. The Bruins only Read More…

District Softball: Destiny’s darling — Weber hits grand slam as Keystone claims 28th district title


LAGRANGE — Destiny Weber, Keystone’s junior catcher and outfielder, missed 13 games this season with back problems. Her absence deprived the Wildcats of more than a veteran player with significant tournament experience. It took a nearly .440 batting average, four doubles, two home runs and 17 RBIs out of the lineup. Weber returned to action Read More…

District Baseball: Amherst frosh Evan Shawver shuts down Avon for 3-0 victory


LORAIN — Amherst freshman Evan Shawver threw 125 pitches in a Division I district semifinal against Avon at The Pipe Yard. Just one of those pitches was hit safely. The rest of the time Shawver was masterful, shutting down the Avon offense in a one-hit 3-0 victory Tuesday that left Comets coach Matt Rositano struggling Read More…

District Softball: Freshman pitcher Ashley Cascio, thundering bats carry EC to 10-0 win over Gilmour


AVON LAKE — Elyria Catholic freshman pitcher Ashley Cascio was nearly perfect Tuesday during a Division III softball district semifinal. The Panthers weren’t too shabby at the plate, either. It all came together for a 10-0 victory over Gilmour Academy in five innings. EC advanced to play Independence, a 12-0 winner over Laurel in the Read More…

Division II district softball: Keystone blanks Firelands
