Renegades looking to repeat as world champs; Nightmare notes
Last summer, the Spring Renegades nine-and-under baseball team won the AABC Jackie Robinson World Series.
This weekend, the team, now playing at the 10-and-under level, is competing in the Willie Mays North Atlantic regionals in Hackensack, N.J.

We also received the following note from Vince Cortese, manager of the 16-and-under Nightmare Fastpitch softball team.
The Nightmare team is heading to Dayton, Ohio to compete in the ASA Nationals August 4-8.
The Nightmare Fastpitch team played in eight tournaments this season. The team went 39-7, consisting of three first place finishes, which included ASA Invitationals in Saratoga Springs, Clifton Park and Amsterdam. The team also earned three second place finishes in South Glens Falls, Latham (Eastern National qualifier) and Albany.
This is Nightmare Fastpitch's first year together. The team features local high school stars such as Shannon Morrill (Hudson Falls), Jenna Cortese (South Glens Falls), Jess Cohen and Sammi Lane (Saratoga Springs), Danielle Groat and Becky Dickman (Ballston Spa), Ally Gehrer and Laurel Abowd (Bethlehem), Angie Acierno (Troy), Justine Makinson (Loudonville Christian) and Zoe DuBois (Burnt Hills).
