Wellsville's 14-2 win over Cuba-Rushford gave baseball coach Dennie Miles
career victory No. 706, breaking a tie with Ed Nietopski for the Section 5 record on Friday.
"To be mentioned in the same breath as him is certainly an honor," said Miles, 69, who is in his 42nd season.
Junior Cooper Ellsworth went 4-for-4 and pitched six innings of shutout ball after coming on in relief as Wellsville improved to 4-1 this season.
Miles' teams have won 12 Section 5 championships.
"The one thing as a coach, especially my age, you don't want to hang on and be one of those old codgers that should have retired," he said. "But you don't want to get out too soon because you wish you hadn't. As long as I still have the desire to be better -- I want to be a better coach, I want to be more effective with my speeches ...

"But I definitely have some more years in me. As long as the Lord is willing I plan on being here for a while more."

• Vestal's Kyle Taborne struck out 11 over six scoreless innings to beat Maine-Endwell 5-1, giving coach Tank Anderson his 400th victory in 29 seasons.
"I don't think too much of personal stuff, but it's been on my mind the past couple days because my son (Seton Catholic Central coach Nick) and everyone else was talking about it," Anderson said. "It just means I've been here for a while and had some really good ball players.
"I'm hoping to get to 500. It's not an ending point for me."
