Recap25Apr imageWell, Friday was a wild and stormy night as thunderstorms struck both York County and Poquoson. As the cleanup gets underway, we move on to the latest baseball and softball news. On Tuesday, April 16th, the Tabb boys hosted Jamestown and pitched an 8-0 shutout. That same evening, the girls also hosted Jamestown and pitched a 10-0 shutout of their own. We mentioned in a previous column the York boys were 0-7, but five of the losses were close, and a win was probably right around the corner. Well, on Wednesday they traveled to Poquoson, and secured a solid 10-0 victory. Congratulations! The girls defeated Poquoson that night as well, in this instance by a 10-2 count. The next evening they ventured up to Bruton and won 8-4 to move to 5-3 on the year. The Grafton boys won at Lafayette 6-5 on Wednesday, and at home against Jamestown 7-5 on Thursday.

Strangely, the night before their 10-0 loss to York, the Poquoson boys visited New Kent on Tuesday, and won in the same convincing 10-0 fashion.
