A Cooperstown Central School junior achieved his goal of running a marathon before his 16th birthday.

Fred Hodgson, who turns 16 Friday, Oct. 22, finished the Syracuse Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 17, in 3 hours, 55 minutes and 13 seconds. His time placed Hodgson 58th out of 178 runners. He placed first in his age bracket, but that was expected, he said.

I was the youngest person in the race by about four years,” he said Monday.

Coop baseball stays undefeated with big conference wins

Coop baseball stays undefeated with big conference wins

By GREG KLEIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Cooperstown won two blowouts and a tight conference game with a controversial ending in a four-day stretch to stay undefeated in baseball.

The Hawkeyes started the weekend by honoring their seniors at Doubleday Field on Friday, May 14, before a 14-1 win over Frankfort-Schuyler in a Center State Conference game.

Chris Ubner hit a grand slam home run and pitched four scoreless innings for the win.

Cooperstown led 11-0 before F-S got on the scoreboard off reliever Derek Moore in the sixth inning.

Treston Emerick relieved Moore and got out of a bases loaded, one-out jam, getting two outs on four pitches. Emerick finished the game with a scoreless seventh inning.

Ubner went 2-for-4 with 5 RBIs and two runs scored. He faced just 12 batters in four innings, although his defense helped him with two double plays. He got five strikeouts and gave up one walk and one hit.
Kendall Haney also had a home run, to almost the same spot in left center field where Ubner cleared the wall, and went 1-for-2 with two runs. Moore went 3-for-4 and scored two runs and Alex Poulson went 1-for-3 and scored three runs.

Kendall Haney, Liam Ford and Alex Hage each pitched one inning in relief, each facing just three Herkimer batters.

Hage, Derek Moore and Tristan Emerick each scored twice. Brady Hascup had two RBI and scored a run and stole three bases. Cooperstown scored six runs in the fifth inning to break the game open.

Cooperstown (4-0, 1-0) plays Adirondack at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 12, in Boonville.

Cooperstown Boys Fall To Weedsport

Cooperstown Boys Fall

To Weedsport In Sectionals

Despite a strong early showing by Hawkeyes newcomer Kaishaun Jefferson, center, the Hawkeyes were cut down 61-52 by the Weedsport Warriors this afternoon at OCC in the Section III championships. Weedsport got an early lead on the 2019 state champs, who quickly caught up, and by halftime, dominated the court 29-19.  The third quarter saw Weedsport pull up and match the Hawkeyes basket for basket, tightening their lead through the start of the fourth quarter, where a series of fouls gave Weedsport an opportunity to collect free-throws. At right, Dillon Burns and Ryan Lansing lament on the bench at the end of the game. But there was something to celebrate; Lansing and Jefferson were both named Section III MVPs.

Hawkeyes Fall 7-3 To

Ticonderoga Sentinels

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.
