If you were to bring one item to the Babe Ruth State Championships last week, it should have been a pacemaker. The 13-year-old Bainbridge All-Stars took fourth place in the tournament after a nail-biting campaign that began and ended at home plate. “There were a lot of close plays,” manager Israel Gaphni said. “And a lot of plays at the plate.

Roller hockey may be the most fun you can have on eight wheels.
Roller hockey on Bainbridge is more about the sun, friends and fun – the last thing on everyone’s mind seems to be the score. “I think we ended up winning,” said Penguins coach Jay Bohonos, after a close game with the Blackhawks. “We really came together there at the end.” Although the outcome may be elusive, the Bainbridge Roller Hockey League boasts no shortage of enthusiasm among young and old. The league has exploded since its beginning seven years ago, when 28 kids played on a blacktop rink enclosed by plywood boards. For the third straight year, BRHL maxed out enrollment at 150, with 12 teams divided evenly among three divisions and players ranging in age from 9-17.

Gridders bulk up for fall campaign

Summer break means morning workouts for Spartan football hopefuls.
It’s early – well, early for any kid during the summer – as the Spartan football team racks up the iron in preparation for the fall season. Determined not to repeat last year’s disappointing 3-7 record, the Spartans have taken to the high school weight room four mornings a week with renewed vigor and playoff aspirations. “We know it’s the dog days of summer and there’s a lot of other stuff these kids could be doing, but they know it will pay off and they’ll see it in September,” Spartan coach Andy Grimm said. This summer’s “Bigger, Faster, Stronger” program has arguably been the most well-attended since off-season training began under former coach Neal White. The current program started in June and will go until the team officially turns out for the season in mid-August.
