Three months ago, the Bishop Kearney girls basketball team ended Red Jacket’s season with a win in the sectional semifinals. The Indians returned the favor in softball, with an 8-2 win Thursday in the Section 5 Class C2 quarterfinals.
“I know everyone who played basketball really wanted to get revenge on them and win,” Indians second baseman Emily Hotchkiss said. “It was big for us to beat them.”
Red Jacket pitcher Carlye Capron went the distance, striking out four and walking two, while allowing just three hits and no earned runs — and the offense combined to hit two home runs and steal 10 bases. Chelsey Jacobs went 2 for 4 with an RBI, two runs scored and three stolen bases, Hotchkiss and Bailey Hixson both homered, and Meghan Gerlock swiped three bases.
As parents, our time is valuable. The only way to “find more time” is to make better use of the time we have; and that can be hard when you’re juggling family life and professional life. Spending more time with the kids, working out consistently, or finding time to cook healthier simply isn’t compatible with an 80 hour work week. One of the best things we parents can do is discipline ourselves to work smarter, not longer. Our work expands to fill the time we allow it. So, although it goes against our instinct, perhaps one of the best ways to work more productively is to actually work less.
Get a recap of Wednesday's high school sports action as the Canandaigua and Irondequoit boys lacrosse teams advance to the Class B semifinals.
The Barons blow out HF-L to advance to the Class A quarterfinals Friday at Geneva. Pitcher Katherine Ghyzel strikes out eight over seven innings for Brighton.
The Canandaigua girls lacrosse team is no stranger to playing in one-goal games. Different Braves have stepped up to score the big goal in close games over the past two years, and it was Lauren D’Amore’s turn to be the hero on Wednesday.
The senior’s goal lifted No. 2 seed Canandaigua to a 10-9 win over No. 3 Irondequoit in sudden-death overtime in the Section 5 Class B semifinals. Canandaigua trailed 8-5 with nine minutes left in regulation, but scored three straight goals to force overtime.
“This is our M.O.,” Braves coach Sue Ellis said of the comeback. “I just wanted them to stay composed, I didn’t want them to get all nervous. I just told them, ‘Play the way you’ve been playing all season long.’ It’s about heart and hustle. They don’t want any regrets.”
