Newell-Fonda bows out to Remsen St. Mary's in district baseball tourney


Remsen St. Mary’s scored five runs in the bottom of the first inning and the fourth-ranked Hawks were never threatened as they ended Newell-Fonda’s season 10-2 in a Class 1A district semifinal on Tuesday at Remsen.

St. Mary’s increased its 5-0 lead to 7-1 in the second inning. The Hawks plated one run in the third, two in the fourth and one in the fifth.

Newell-Fonda had one hit in the game — a single by Brooks Bellcock. He and Jackson Bellcock each had an RBI.

Max Carlson suffered the loss. He allowed eight hits and eight runs, only one of which was earned, walked none and struck out two in three innings.

Ty Tauber gave up two hits and no runs, walked one and struck out three in two innings of relief. Brooks Bellcock allowed one hit and two unearned runs, walked none and struck out none in one inning.

Newell-Fonda committed six errors in the game.

“It’s a tough way to end your season,” Newell-Fonda coach Nathan Baron said. “Credit to St. Mary’s. They really put the pressure on us early. We just couldn’t rebound from that deficit. Hats off to our kids. Those young men never quit. They kept fighting until the end and that was kind of us all season. Sometimes it just doesn’t go your way.

“I would like to thank Ty Tauber and Brooks Bellcock for their dedication to our baseball program the last five years,” Baron added. “They were great leaders and we will certainly miss them. They will be hard to replace.”

Newell-Fonda ended its season 15-11.
