SULLIVAN COUNTY – This year’s baseball and softball teams got off to a slow start because of the stubborn winter weather. When the local teams were finally able to take the fields and start practicing, schools on the other side of Section IX had already played a handful of scrimmages and games. Not to be deterred, the athletes around the county practiced hard despite the setback, and many still salvaged a decent spring season.
Livingston Manor and Eldred’s softball teams squared off in the Class D Championship for Section IX, a game in which the Lady Yellowjackets asserted their dominance, earning their 7th consecutive Class D title. The Eldred boys were the only school in Class D to qualify for the post-season, and Chapel Field eliminated them in the first round.
The Tri-Valley Bears visited Seward in a sectional matchup in Class C after splitting the regular season series, and the Bears came up short against the Spartans.
This spring also saw the re-emergence of the Roscoe Blue Devils to the varsity baseball scene for the first time in well over a decade. Their two wins, against Downsville and Livingston Manor, was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise quiet season.
While there were some teams that had great success, and others that did not fare as well, there were great standout performers on teams across Sullivan County, and the sports team at the Sullivan County Democrat is proud to announce their 2022 All-Star Teams for both Baseball and Softball.
