Dominating pitching again carries North softball teams to state titles

History repeated itself on Saturday.

In 2012, dominating pitching performances led Old Town, Bucksport and Penobscot Valley of Howland to state softball championships.

Kendra Hayward hurled Old Town to a 4-1 win over Fryeburg Academy in the state Class B title game, Bucksport’s Cassidy Adams blanked Dirigo of Dixfield 2-0 in Class C and Kayla Dube of Penobscot Valley bested Richmond 4-2 in the Class D game.

Fast-forward five years to last Saturday, when Old Town’s McKenna Smith struck out 19 Fryeburg Academy hitters and fired a three-hitter in a 2-0 Class B title triumph, Katelin Saunders tossed a two-hitter with 13 strikeouts in Bucksport’s 2-1 victory over Madison in Class C and in Class D Leine McKechnie fashioned a no-hitter as Penobscot Valley ended Richmond’s 88-game winning streak dating back to the 2012 state title game 4-0. ... te-titles/
