BASEBALL

New Oxford 1, West York 0

Jesse Bitzer was dialed in.

The Colonial hurler flirted with perfection on Thursday when he faced West York on his home diamond. Bitzler didn’t allow a hit or a walk through 5.2 innings of work, and the Ox played sparkling defense behind him.

Bitzer’s bid for a perfect game, and a no-hitter, were ended when Jordy Rios dropped down a two-out bunt single for what would prove to be the Bulldogs’ lone hit of the day.

Bitzer needed only 80 pitches — 60 of which were strikes — to record a one-hit victory. He struck out eight without walking a batter, enducing a dozen groundouts.

Veteran Colonial head coach Scott Anderson said Bitzer’s performance was one of the best he has seen in nearly three decades of baseball at the Ox.

Nic Barnett was a tough-luck loser on the other side as he fired six innings of one-hit ball with four strikeouts.

TRACK & FIELD

Gettysburg boys 74, Dover 72

Gettysburg girls 90, Dover 59

Noah Sanders hit the ground running on Thursday, setting a pair of Gettysburg program records in a win over Dover.

Sanders took down the 200 meter dash mark of 22.0 set by Kurt Daganhardt in 1974. The Warrior did so with a time of 21.86.

Sanders also unseated a trio of former Warriors who shared the 100 meter dash record of 10.8. That group, which included Crawford Trostle (1933), Tom Crist (1959) and Darnell Johnson (2005) now stand in second after Sanders clocked a blistering 10.5.

“We didn’t even know he broke them until we got back and looked at the times,” said Warrior head coach Jeff Bair, who pointed to that remarkable time in the 100. “That’s an awesome time. It’s got to be one of the best times in the state right now.”

Hunter Williams enjoyed a big day as well, sweeping the throwing events with wins in the shot put, discus and javelin.

On the girls’ side, Gettysburg enjoyed a comfortable victory over the Eagles, thanks in part of victories by Winter Oaster in the 1600 (6:03.3) and 800 (2:35.9) runs. Samantha Shaffer was also a double winner, taking top honors in the discus and javelin.
