In opening week baseball action this week, Fallsburg swept Eldred 3-0 in a Division V league series, while Tri-Valley held sway two games to one in its opening-league encounter with Tuxedo. Monticello fell to Burke 8-6 on a late-inning comeback rally by the Eagles in a non-league opener. In softball, Liberty lost its two opening games as it fell to Livingston Manor 7-4 and then to Port Jervis 15-0. Sullivan West also began its season at 0-2 with a 5-0 loss to Port Jervis and 15-0 defeat to Goshen. Fallsburg was the victim of a perfect game hurled by Tuxedo’s Kelly Ross as the Lady Tornadoes beat the Lady Comets 17-0. Schools are on spring break, but action will resume on April 14 with the Benny Chesnick Softball tournament staged in Tri-Valley and Liberty. Monticello baseball will host Saugerties as well.
