Above, Chris Ubner, pitches for the Cooperstown Hawkeyes against a member of the Ticonderoga Sentinels this afternoon during the NYSPHSAA Baseball State Championships held at at Binghamton University earlier this evening. Ryan Lansing managed to make it home in the first inning, but the team didn’t score another run until the sixth inning, when Lansing brought in his second home run and Spencer Lewis grabbed a third. Although the points seemed to bolster the packed Cooperstown cheering section, it wasn’t enough to overcome the deficit which led to the Hawkeyes losing 7-3. But they were still honored as hometown heroes, and at right, crowds cheer and applaud as they welcome the Hawkeyes back to Cooperstown atop the fire department’s ladder truck.

CCS Hawkeyes Win League Title

Hawkeye Bertram topped Redskin Seth Schaeffer’s 1994 record of 1,714 points, reaching 1,728 in the game. “It’s a nice thing to get out of the way before sectionals,” said his father, Basketball Coach Dave Bertram.
And it wasn’t the only triumph of the night. The Cooperstown Hawkeyes took the League Championship title.
