High School Roundup: Shikellamy baseball edges Hughesville

SUNBURY — Teams that win take care of the opportunities that are presented to them.

Shikellamy turned a wild pitch and an infield single into a pair of runs that gave the Braves a 6-5 Heartland Athletic Conference cross-over win over Hughesville on Thursday.

The Braves trailed the entire game until they tied the score at 5 when Kyle Leitzel scored on a wild pitch in the sixth inning.

An inning later, Tucker Ruch singled to lead off the seventh and he advanced to second on Matt Snyder’s sacrifice. Jordan Garringer then hit a grounder to short which he beat out to allow Ruch to score.

Ruch batted 2-for-3 and Colby Lahr went 2-for-2 and doubled to lead Shikellamy (2-0).


Danville 5,

Selinsgrove 2

SELINSGROVE — Megan Dennen’s two-out, bases-loaded triple in the fourth inning gave the Ironmen all the runs they needed for the HAC-I win.

Ally Mullen later added an RBI double in the seventh to give Danville (1-0) extra cushion.

Sara Reibschied went 2-for-4 and doubled to lead Selinsgrove (0-2).

Shamokin 6,

Shikellamy 3

COAL TOWNSHIP — The Indians broke a 2-all tie with a four-run third to beat the Braves in the HAC-I matchup.

Riley Hixson doubled and scored a run for Shikellamy (0-1).

Warrior Run 14,

Lewisburg 2 (5 innings)

LEWISBURG — The Defenders plated seven runs in the fifth inning to end the HAC-II matchup early. Lisa Waldman had two hits for Warrior Run (1-1), the only player in the game to do so.

Lewisburg, which was held to just two hits in the game by Maddie Beyer, falls to 0-2.

Milton 10,
