Spring Hill girls' softball team in running for title

Spring Hill Dixie Softball League is competing in the District 6 Dixie League Tournament in New Port Richey this week. The hometown Spring Hill team bounced back to put themselves back into contention for the district title.

After dropping the opening game of the double-elimination tournament to West Pasco, the Angels Division (ages 9-10) squad came back with consecutive wins over Wesley Chapel (7-2) and Hernando-Brooksville (8-1).

Those victories were powered by the pitching of Sarah Brown and Ashley Logan. Brown tossed a one-hitter in the win over Wesley Chapel, while Logan threw a two-hit complete game against Hernando-Brooksville.

Manager Glenn Primavera likes his team's chances of reaching the district championship final in a rematch with West Pasco. Spring Hill's biggest asset is its defense at the infield corner positions with Celine Kordon at third base and Abbey Primavera at first.

Manager Primavera credits much of his team's success to the coaching staff of Melissa Varela and Rich Woodall.

LACROSSE HONORS: The West Florida Lacrosse League, the organization that oversees the Hernando Lacrosse Club, named its annual end-of-season All-Star Team.

Hernando had two members named as Honorable Mentions on the A Division team. Sean Byrne, a junior midfielder at Hernando Christian, and Ben Noury, a junior defenseman at Springstead, were both given the honor.

For Byrne, it was his second consecutive All-WFLL Honorable Mention and third time being named to the team overall. Noury, who wasn't named to the squad last season, made his second appearance on the list in three seasons.

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    South Florida Bulls safety Devin Abraham (20) sacks Temple Owls quarterback Logan Marchi (12) during the first half at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Thursday, September 21, 2017.
  2. No. 21 USF Bulls roll over Temple to stay undefeated


    TAMPA — They emerged from Raymond James Stadium's southwest tunnel on the 11-month anniversary of their public humiliation at Temple.

    Bulls tailback Darius Tice, who rushes for 117 yards, is elated by his 47-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead.
  3. Fennelly: USF thrashes Temple to stay unbeaten; too bad not many saw it in person



    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

    Bulls cornerback Deatrick Nichols (3) celebrates with teammates after making a defensive play during the first half.
  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
