Baseball: Wayne Valley coming into its own

Source: The Bergen Record

Expectations were high last season for Wayne Valley because the Indians brought back most significant contributors from a team that won the Passaic County championship in 2010.

Not nearly as much was expected of the 2012 Indians, who had to replace six position players and ace Andrew Furber from a squad that again reached the Passaic County final. But Wayne Valley has played very respectable baseball during the first three weeks of the season. Click here to read more.

Aidan Stewart wanted this win badly. West Milford lost his previous two starts
against Wayne Hills, even though the Highlanders’ senior right-hander pitched well
in both: 7-6 in 11 innings last season, and 2-0 on opening day nearly three weeks ago
when Stewart allowed only one earned run and struck out six in seven innings.
Wayne Hills managed nine hits off him Friday, but Stewart struck out nine Patriots, worked
out of jams in the first, fifth and seventh innings and finally beat them, 4-2. Click here to read more
