Sunday, June 3, 2018: Oyster Bay's Maloney wins singles championship

   Leading off today: Oyster Bay senior Patrick Maloney won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association singles championship Saturday morning at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows.

   Maloney defeated Geneva Ryan Fishback 7-5, 6-2. Maloney had dropped only six games in his first three matches of the tournament before fining himself in a battle with the Section 5 sophomore.

   "I started off pretty slow," Maloney said. "I wasn't serving well but I just fought hard."

   Tied 5-5 in the first set, Maloney fought off game points twice on his way to going up 6-5 and then served out the set.

   "When my serve isn't going I try to focus on my baseline game and just mix things up a lot," said Maloney, a University of Michigan recruit. "I'm really confident in my second serve though so I knew I wasn't going to double fault much."

   In doubles, Charlie Levinson and Connor Aylett rallied to a 2-6, 6-1, 6-4 victory in the final over Scarsdale's Luke Smith and Nikolay Sahakyan.

   Big day for Section 5 school: To the Victor goes the spoils.

   Triumphs in boys lacrosse, baseball and softball Saturday advanced three Victor teams into NYSPHSAA semifinals in the upcoming week.

   Emily Power's infield single with the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning drove in the go-ahead run as the Blue Devils advanced to the softball Class AA semifinals with a 3-1 win over Lancaster. Katie Sidare struck out 12 batters to pick up the win.

   In baseball, Chris Varone homered at Rochester's Frontier Field for the second time in three games as Victor downed Lancaster 3-1 in the quarterfinals.

   Santino Rosso led off the Victor first with a single to center field, and Varone followed with his drive over the wall in left field.

   The boys lacrosse team walloped Hamburg 15-3 in Class B to advance to Wednesday's semifinals.    The Blue Devils raced to a 6-0 lead in the first quarter as Camden Hay scored a pair and Connor Keenan, Joey Pezzimenti, Alexander Mabbett and Sam Lambert connected once apiece.

   "When we're clicking, we're a pretty dangerous team," goalie Chayse Ierlan said. "I didn't see a shot, maybe one at most, in the first quarter, and that's a credit to our defense. We had so many long possessions and our defense did a really nice job of creating turnovers and getting it back to our offense."

       More softball notes: Amy Mallah lashed a walk-off single up the middle to give East Meadow a 6-5 win over Longwood in the NYSPHSAA Class AA quarterfinals at Hofstra, capping a rally from a 5-1 deficit.

       Juliana Sanzone's two-out, two-run single cut the deficit to 5-3 in the third and Longwood tied the contest in the fourth on an error that brought home two more runs.

        • A two-out throwing error gave Olean a 6-5 walk-off win vs. Bishop Kearney in the Class B quarterfinals. Kearney won a state title in Class C last year.

       A dropped fly ball in left field allowed Elyse Graham to reach second with one out, and she headed to third on a two-out passed ball. Graham scored when the throw to first base sailed wide.

        • Pitcher Carley Stoker tripled to lead off the bottom of the ninth and scored on Olivia Pappa's fly to center field as Sandy Creek eliminated Elmira Heights Edison 1-0 in Class C.

       Stoker scattered four hits and struck out 14.
