Octorara Little League Team Plays In State Tournament August 2, 2018

Members of the Octorara Area Little League (OALL) seniors team, ages 15 and 16, recently advanced to the 2018 Pennsylvania Senior League State Baseball Championship held July 11 to 15 at Showers Field in DuBois. This was the first time that a team from OALL advanced to the state all-star tournament.

Team members include Justin Bray, James Colligan, Ryan Dorbich, Sean Foster, Anthony Georgette, Christopher Hamrick, Zachary Hurrelbrinck, Nicholas Palmer, Kaden Salada, Kyle Stauffer, Weston Stoltzfus, Parker Wiley, Zane Wolownik and Christopher Zary. The team's coaches are John Foster, Gerald Stoltzfus and Brian Zary, president of OALL.

Brian explained that following the regular season, an all-star team is chosen from existing players. "There were two (senior) teams from Octorara that play against teams in Lancaster and Chester counties," he said. "The players get selected by their peers and coaches to be on the all-star team, and they represent Octorara in tournaments."

On the road to the state event, teams have to win at the district level and then at sectionals. "We did not have to play districts because the (other teams) bowed out, so (Little League) gave us an 'advance to play' waiver," Brian explained.

Sectionals were held in Thorndale, and the OALL players defeated a team from Caln Little League in the final game of the event to advance to the state tournament.

At the state championship, the team from OALL won its first game in the tournament by a score of 4-3.

"We beat a team from Hollidaysburg in the first game - a team from western Pennsylvania," said Brian. According to a game recap provided by Brian, the team from Hollidaysburg scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning. However, Octorara scored three in the third inning to take the lead. Hollidaysburg then scored one run in the bottom of the fourth inning to create a tie. In the fifth inning, Sean hit a bases-loaded RBI groundout to drive in the winning run.

Octorara finished with seven hits in the game, all singles, by seven players - Weston, Chris, Zachary, Kyle, Anthony, Zane and Sean. Sean also had two RBI. The win was credited to Kyle, the pitcher, and Zachary earned the save.

Following the win, Octorara was defeated by a team from Hanover Township and a team from Hatboro. Octorara finished fifth in the double-elimination state tournament.

Brian said that playing in the state event was exciting for the players and that games were broadcast live on the radio. "It's a beautiful field; it's actually a minor league stadium," he said. "It was quite the experience."

Both coaches and players alike were pleased with the outcome. "No one from Octorara made it to the state tournament (before), let alone won a game (there)," said Brian. "Octorara was going against (larger Little League) programs. Our Little League is 250 kids, with 25 to 30 on the senior level. Some of these leagues have over 1,000 kids. Occasionally, the little guys get to win."

He credits the team's success to the players, coaches and parents. "It's a combination of the players' good chemistry, coaches and support by the parents and the community," Brian said.

"A lot of (the players) are 15 years old and looking to return next year," he added.

Softball Team Advances To States July 12, 2018

Members of the Avon Grove Area Little League (AGALL) 10U girls' All-Star Softball Team were recently crowned the District 28 and Section 7 champions, earning them the right to play in the Pennsylvania State Little League Tournament. Hosted by the Christy Mathewson Little League in Fleetville, the tournament began on July 17 and will run through Monday, July 23.

According to team manager Dusty McKeown, this is the third year in a row that the team has advanced to States. "This is an incredible accomplishment for our girls as well as our community," he remarked.

Dusty explained that District 28 is comprised of Little League teams from Oxford, Kennett Square, Caln, Coatesville, Twin Valley, Downingtown, Lionville, Glenmoore-Eagle and West Bradford, along with West Side and East Side in West Chester.

"You have your regular Little League season that runs from late March to early June," he said. "At the end of the year, you pull an All-Star team."

Members of the AGALL All-Star 10U team include Gabriella Beltran, Paige Chudnofsky, Haileigh Corbett, Addison Curtis, Kailey Deckman, Mackenzie Dunlap, Reese Dunlap, Cailin Maley, Megan McKeown, Elle Morris, Adelyn Overton, Sophia Santinelli, Peyton Smerkanich and Michaela Sycalik. The team's assistant coaches are Lino Santinelli, Chris Morris and Melissa Chudnofsky.

In the District 28 championship game, Dusty reported that Megan threw a no-hitter to lead the team past Coatesville 13-0. "Megan went six innings, allowing zero runs and zero hits and (throwing) 16 strikeouts," he stated. "Avon Grove 10U racked up 13 hits on the day. Gabby, Megan, Michaela, and Elle each had multiple hits for the team."

Dusty provided additional statistics about the district tournament. "We went 3 and 0 in the tournament, scoring 38 runs while allowing two runs (both unearned)," he reported. "Our pitchers racked up 34 strikeouts in 16 innings and had a team ERA of 0.00. Our team batting average was .384, and our team on-base percentage was .518."

To prepare for the district championship game, Dusty said the girls practiced six days a week, for two and a half to three hours per day, for five weeks leading up to the tournament.

"I am extremely proud of all the hard work and dedication this group of girls has put in to be the team they have become. They practiced almost every day since the beginning of June with the goal being to get back to the state tournament," he stated. "They have achieved their goal and have represented Avon Grove, District 28 and Section 7 with class and exhibiting good sportsmanship throughout. Win or lose, they will be a joy to watch during the state tournament."

If the team is successful at States, it will advance to the Eastern Region Tournament to be held the last week in July.

AGALL, located in West Grove, is a chartered member of Little League International. The nonprofit organization provides baseball and softball opportunities for players ranging in age from 4 to 16 who attend school in the Avon Grove School District.
