Looking at saving resources and focusing on getting as many players on the field as possible, the New Bethlehem Little League won’t be doing much during all-star season.

LORETTO — Penn State recruit Kylee Lingenfelter kept her dominating season going, leading the Punxsutawney Lady Chucks softball team to the PIAA Class 4A Championship game with a 3-1 win over defending champion Mount Pleasant Monday afternoon.

Last year’s PIAA state playoff opening-round success for District 9 baseball and softball teams didn’t replicate itself Monday as D9 went 3-9 in openers.

It’s an award that considering the circumstances, one would rather not get, but for East Brady native Jim Kelly, it’s something that shows and honors the fight and courage he’s shown.

NEW BETHLEHEM — A big five-run rally got the Redbank Valley Lady Bulldogs softball team back in business in the bottom of the fifth inning of last week’s District 9 2A semifinals against visiting Johnsonburg.

The threat of rain forced a hard decision for District 9 to postpone what was six baseball playoffs games on Tuesday— three in Class 1A and three in Class 2A.
