Schalmont edges Scotia-Glenville in Bruce Bouck Tournament final

"It's nice to get everybody out here to see the new (baseball) facilities," said Anderson. "We're not quite finished (with both fields), but we're close."

Bouck's widow, Cindy, and sons, Bruce and Robert, were also on hand for the re-dedication of the varsity field. Robert handed out the championship and consolation trophies after the final game.

"He (Bouck) spent a lot of his time here," said Cindy, who continues to attend Schalmont games. "He loved the kids, and he loved the sport."

Schalmont cruised into the championship game with an 11-5 opening round victory over Bishop Gibbons, while Scotia-Glenville needed nine innings to defeat Cobleskill-Richmondville 5-4.

McKelvey, Lancto and J.P. Sportman each had three hits and combined to drive in nine of Schalmont's 11 runs in its victory over Bishop Gibbons. Bobby McLaughlin belted a home run for Bishop Gibbons, which defeated Cobleskill 8-6 in the consolation game.

Schalmont returned to Colonial Council action Monday with an important 10-7 victory over league-leading Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk. The Sabres scored six runs in the bottom of the second inning to take the lead and added four runs in the sixth to seal the victory.

Sportman drove in three runs with a double and a single for Schalmont, which moved within a game of R-C-S (12-2, 14-3) in the loss column with three regular season games remaining. The Sabres are 10-3 in the league and hold the tiebreaker over the Indians after beating them in both Colonial Council meetings this season.

Meanwhile, Scotia-Glenville locked up second place in the Foothills Council following a 6-1 victory over Hudson Falls Monday. Jared Swider had three hits to lead the Tartans, who finished the regular season with an 11-3 league record, one game behind South Glens Falls.

In other baseball action Monday, Mohonasen and Niskayuna remain tied for first place in the Suburban Council White Division after both teams picked up big crossover victories against two of the top Gold Division squads. Mohonasen edged Bethlehem 11-10, while Niskayuna defeated Columbia 6-1.
