Schuyler Duross (Johnstown) won the NJCAA Region III Decathlon championship, placing first in five of the 10 events for the Alfred State men's track and field team.

He won the 100-meter dash with a time of 121.5 and the 400 meters in 52.8, the 110 hurdles in 17.7 and the pole vault with 3.66. He also won the 1,500 meters in 5:11.8.

Duross accumulated 5,232 points and will compete in the Division III nationals at Alfred State.

Katie Finch (Broadalbin-Perth) threw a two-hit shutout and struck out six batters for the State University of New York at Cortland softball team in a 10-0 win over SUNY Potsdam.

Cortland, which is ranked ninth nationally in Division III, has finished the regular season and, with a previous doubleheader sweep over SUNY Plattsburgh, has wrapped up the SUNY Athletic Conference regular-season title.

The Red Dragons also have won 30 games for eight straight seasons.

Finch is 18-2 with a .67 ERA. She has 208 strikeouts in 136 innings pitched.

Kris Barone (Gloversville) doubled in the first game of a doubleheader as the Herkimer County Community College baseball team split with Tompkins-Cortland Community College.

Barone had eight hits Sunday in a doubleheader sweep of Jefferson County Community College. He also drove in a key run. He doubled twice in the second game.

Dave Gage (Broadalbin-Perth) hit a three-run double, helping the Southern Vermont College baseball team to an 11-5 win in the first game of a doubleheader against Becker College.

Gage also came around to score.

He is hitting .302 for the Mountaineers with two doubles and 11 RBIs.

Kyle Hill (Oppenheim-Ephratah) gave up four earned runs, leading the Cazenovia College baseball team to a win over Hilbert College as the two teams split a doubleheader.

Hill gave the Wildcats a complete-game effort.

Matt Begeal (Wells) had a hit in each game and drove in a run in the first for Hilbert.

Michelle Jackson (Amsterdam) threw a complete game for the Oswego State softball team as the Lakers snapped a SUNYAC losing streak with a sweep over SUNY Potsdam.

Jackson struck out eight batters and walked only two.

Despite a 5-10 record, Jackson has a .368 ERA and has struck out 83 batters in 95 innings.

Luke Nellis (Fonda-Fultonville) worked out of trouble in the bottom of the seventh inning for the LeMoyne baseball team to earn the save as the Dolphins split a doubleheader with Bryant.

Nellis has two saves and 36 strikeouts in 37 innings.

Teammate Tom McDermott (Amsterdam) is 3-3 with a 5.87 ERA and has 49 strikeouts in 46 innings.
