Welcome to Patch's daily snapshot of sports in Peekskill and Cortlandt.
We thank Shrub Oak coach Ray Glashoff for the below submission:
The Shrub Oak 17U American Legion Baseball Team captured the Artie Pisano Memorial Baseball Tournament this past weekend by going undefeated with a 6-0 record. The tournament is in honor of Pisano, who died of pancreatic cancer.
This is the fifth annual tournament and it is played over in Rockland County. The proceeds from the tournament go to pancreatic cancer research. The Shrub Oak team is comprised of players from Lakeland, Walter Panas, Hendrick Hudson, Westlake, Yorktown and Carmel High Schools.
Scott Russo of Yorktown was voted the tournament’s MVP. Shrub Oak defeated the host Rockland Riverdogs in the championship game by the score of 7-4.
Walter Panas' Vaughn Dweck made the first cut for the Section 1 team that is competing in the second annual BCANY Summer Hoops Festival on August 3-5 at Johnson City High School, which is just outside of Binghamton, according to MSG Varsity.
