JOHN YOHE + JUAN BORBON
ST. DOMINIC — BASEBALL
St. Dominic isn't all about star Kyle Hansen (who threw a perfect game
on April 1 against St. Mary's). When Yohe takes the mound, he can bring
it too. In a CHSAA battle against Holy Trinity on April 8, the senior threw
a complete-game six-hitter with seven strikeouts in a 4-3 win. Yohe's
presence on the mound opened up a spot at third base for Borbon, who
took full advantage. He went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs.
STUYVESANT — BASEBALL
This was as dominant a performance as you'll
ever see, at any level. Becker, a 6-foot-6 senior
ESPN RISE All-Area first team selection, threw a
perfect game against Manhattan Bridges on April
8. But that's been done plenty of times at the
high school level. The biggest news was that
Becker fanned all 18 batters he faced in the
10-0 win. Incredibly, only three batters managed
to hit a foul ball against Becker.
JACKIE KELLY + LAURA LEONE
ST. JOSEPH BY THE SEA — SOFTBALL
In a hard-fought battle against PSAL power Madison, it was the
Jackie and Laura Show. The dangerous duo had all three
RBIs in a 3-2, nine-inning triumph on April 13. Kelly, a sophomore,
got things started in the fourth with a single
and scored on a double by Leone, a junior.
Then with the Vikings trailing, 2-1, in
the bottom of the ninth, Kelly doubled
in the tying run and
scored on Leone's twobagger.
MASSAPEQUA — GIRLS' LACROSSE
DeMairo, an All-American and
Massapequa's leading scorer the last two
seasons, came out on fire in 2009. The senior
midfielder scored six goals and added
an assist in a tough 13-11 loss to Manhasset
on April 6. She scored seven goals twice in
a four-day span, in a 25-21 win over West
Babylon on March 27 and a 21-8 triumph
over South Side on March 31. DeMairo
has signed with Duke.
