Roundup: Baseball falls short of CIAC tournament

CANTON, May 23 — The Canton High baseball team (3-11, 3-10 NCCC) had the opportunity to earn a spot in the Class S tournament with three wins in its final four games. But the Warriors allowed 12 hits in a 11-4 loss to Windsor Locks and were eliminated from tournament contention with a 7-6 loss in 10 innings to Somers.

Canton earned its third win of the season with a 1-0 win over East Granby. Nick Quattro, who was 2-for-3 in the game, scored the game’s lone run in the first inning. He singled, moved to second on another single, stole third and scored on a fielder’s choice by Aras Banevicius. Pitcher Patrick Sullivan struck out six and scattered four hits to earn the victory.

BOYS GOLF: The Warriors (6-8, 6-6 NCCC) shot a season-low 165 last week in a 165-202 victory over Windsor Locks. Canton’s Mark Amaroso earned medalist honors for the second time this season with a season-low score of 38 at Copper Hill. Muke Pepin had a 43, Derek Soiser shot a 41 and Sam Crow got a 45.

Earlier this month, Canton’s David Roux earned medalist honors for the fifth time this season last week with a 39 at Tower Ridge in Simsbury in Canton’s 168-199 win over Somers.

GIRLS GOLF: After getting their team score down to 209 in a win over Hand in late April, the Warriors (5-10, 4-6 SCGGL) have hit a wall. They haven’t come close to 209 since and have lost seven of their last nine matches. Canton had a 15-stroke win over Hand, 230-245 but lost by five to Hall (225) in the same match.

GIRLS LACROSSE: Scoring has been difficult for the Warriors (1-12, 0-9 NCCC), who have scored just 10 goals in the past five games. Last week, Granby beat Canton by a score of 21-3 and Northwest Catholic topped the Warriors, 19-2.

TENNIS: Last week was a washout for the Canton tennis programs due to the rain. The boys (4-6) finish the season at the NCCC Tournament Thursday, May 26 at Windsor Locks while the girls (3-10) finish the campaign at the NCCC Tournament on Thursday, May 26 at Suffield High.
