Softball: Wachna leads Onondaga to 6-4 victory over Fabius-Pompey
Lindsay Wachna is a hitting machine. On Thursday, the Onondaga Central High School batter added three more hits and scored the winning run as the Tigers defeated Fabius-Pompey 6-4 in an OHSL Patriot American divisionsoftball game.
It was just the second loss of the season for the Falcons and their first in the league.
Wachna is batting .674, the highest average of any player in Onondaga County.
In an 8-4 victory over LaFayette on Wednesday, Wachna hit for the cycle. That is, she got a home run, triple, double and single.
"That's a big deal," said Onondaga coach Sarah Dolph. "I can't tell you've I've seen that much more than once or twice."
Dolph said Wachna spends extra time hitting outside her team's regular practice. She said Wachna is consistent in keeping the ball in play.
"She's a strong girl," Dolph said, "and when she puts the ball in play, things happen."
Just one of many bright futures we have playing for us. Very nice article done on Kennedy as she forges ahead through her Spring season despite injury & heart-ache.

MEXICO — Staging a dramatic two-out, two-run rally, the Mexico varsity softball game won a thrilling 6-5 contest over visiting Homer on Tuesday.
The Tigers (5-5 league, 6-8 overall) trailed 5-4 entering the bottom of the seventh inning, but Kennedy Lamb tied the game with a single to center field, and she later scored the winning run on Kendra Harter’s single to left to end the game.
The walk-off win set off a celebration in front of the Mexico dugout. Not only did it lift the Tigers to the .500 mark in league play, but it punctuated a day dedicated to raising money to fight cancer.
Following the game, the Tigers presented a check for $1,417.75 to the American Cancer Society/Coaches Vs. Cancer.
The team and the Mexico community worked hard to raise the money, selling T-shirts, chances on gift baskets, and wrist bands. Parents also pledged donations.
Lamb, who was selected as the Mexico Sports Boosters Player of the Game from the Tigers, dedicated her MVP award to the memory of her grandfather, William Jess Lamb, who died on Saturday.
“It was for him,” she said. “I had a little extra motivation.”
Lamb, a hard-throwing lefty, attacked the strike zone and came up with some big outs throughout the game. At the plate, she contributed two hits, including the clutch single to knock in the tying run in the seventh.
“She really did terrific,” Coach Andy MacDonald said about Lamb. He noted that she has been back in the lineup only a few games since returning from a concussion. “She’s been pitching strong. She’s a gamer.”
