It's been a tough luck year for the Kane High School baseball team with several one-run losses.
Through all the adversity, the Wolves never gave up.
Their perseverance paid off Friday as they ended the season with a solid 10-5 win over Brockway at home at Pat Santilli Field.
"I'm proud of these guys," second-year Kane coach Bruce Kumher said. "This win says a lot about their integrity."
Kane (2-10) lost a one-run game Thursday to Smethport and could have let that defeat affect their play in the final game Friday.
A four-run fifth inning was the difference as the Smethport Hubbers defeated the Kane Wolves baseball team 5-4 on a perfect afternoon for baseball on Wednesday at Pat Santilli Field.
Senior Andrew Peterson started on the hill for Kane coach Bruce Kumherâ€™s Wolves. Peterson allowed a singled to right by Mike DeLuca in the first, but allowed nothing else as the Wolves came up to bat in their half of the inning.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ Johnsonburg softball split a doubleheader with Kane Thursday afternoon at Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School in Ridgway.
Kane won the first game 6-5 in eight innings before Johnsonburg took the second game 21-2 in five innings.
The Kane boysâ€™ track and field team will try to make it four District IX AA titles in a row during Fridayâ€™s meet on their home track. The Kane girls, who have battled injuries and illness all season, will look to improve upon 2014â€™s third-place finish.
Sophomore Joe Newton will be competing in the 110-meter high hurdles, the 300-meter hurdles and the triple jump for coach Tom Cecchettiâ€™s Wolves. Newton comes in to Fridayâ€™s meet as the second seed in the 110s and is seeded third in his other two events.
The Kane softball team ran into a buzz-saw Tuesday afternoon by the name of the Elk County Catholic Lady Crusaders. ECC beat the Lady Wolves soundly for the second day in a row as the Lady Crusaders jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the top of the first and cruised to a 20-1 win in Kaneâ€™s Senior Recognition Game.
The Lady Wolvesâ€™ biggest crowd of the year was on hand to honor senior players Daria Huckabone and Emily Truden, as well as statistician Anna Stanko, prior to the game. Unfortunately for the home fans, things went downhill rapidly after the festivities.
ST. MARYS â€“ The Elk County Catholic Crusader baseball team recorded a pair of shutouts on Tuesday in back-to-back games against the Kane Wolves and the DuBois Central Catholic Cardinals at Berwind Park. In the afternoon game, ECC senior Ryan Seelye three a three-inning no-hitter and struck out six as the Crusaders defeated Kane 15-0.
