It never gets old, although you get the sense that Dale Werth wouldn’t mind trying to find out.
At this rate, the Canandaigua Academy baseball team just might.
The Braves rode the left arm of senior ace Michael Sculli and got some breaks on the base paths to win their fourth straight Section V Class A1 title, a 3-0 win over No. 1 seed Greece Athena on Saturday at RIT.
“No, never,” Werth said when asked if winning gets old. “To be honest, it’s pretty amazing. It’s so hard to a sectional championship, even just one. Especially in a sport like baseball where it can … be a game of inches. And, we lost seven games this year.”
The coach’s point is that even with more than a handful of losses in the regular season, putting it all together at the right time is what counts. And the Braves (13-7) certainly have done that over the last four years.
In winning their fourth straight title, CA improved to 12-0 in the last four postseasons. They advanced last spring to the state semifinals, but lost just two seniors from that team.
