The Varsity Letters congratulates Canon-McMillan for its impressive showing in winning the PIAA Class AAAA baseball championship. Well done.
Kudos also to the Carmichaels baseball team, who played a good game but came up a little short in the PIAA Class A championship. Well done.
Both teams gave its fans many, many memories.
Also, let's not forget the great seasons for Trinity baseball, Peters Township baseball and Washington softball. All represented its communities extremely well.
Just want to say this baseball/softball season was the most fun I've had covering spring sports in several years - and spring sports is almost always my favorite season anyway.
There's a lot of talent, a lot of great kids, great coaches, good people and, of course, the occasional idiot who'd rather yell at me on the field while their kid is posing for pictures with a gold medal around his neck. Never understood that behavior but it comes with the territory. And it makes me and the rest of us get a good chuckle.
Awesome season guys and gals. One I'll remember for a long time.
Keep checking back here during the summer. We'll have updates on occasion before football and soccer get into full swing.
Over the next couple weeks, I'll be vacationing along the beach in Corolla, N.C., but I'll also be compiling the O-R all-district baseball and softball teams in addition to the Boys and Girls Athlete of the Year package. It's a lot of work but I'm looking forward to getting started.
