Three singles helped Oneonta High to three runs in the fifth inning and Oneonta High went on to a 4-1 non-league baseball victory over Shady Springs (W. Va.) on Wednesday at Field 6 in Neahwa Park.

With the score tied at 1, Conor Youngs led off Oneonta's fifth with a single. He went to third on a single by Sean Getman. After Zach Pidgeon walked to load the bases, Youngs scored the go-ahead run on a passed ball.

James Emilio followed with an RBI single and David Wright had an RBI groundout to cap the scoring.

OHS junior Mike Calkins made his season debut on the mound and threw three scoreless innings to get the win. A left-hander who missed the basketball season with left hamstring and hip injuries, Calkins struck out four and walked none.

"Mike thew the ball well," OHS coach Joe Hughes said of Calkins, who relieved starter Sean Getman in the fifth inning. "He had good velocity and good command. It was encouraging to see him pitch the ball well and pain free."

Emilio and Logan Pondolfino had two hits apiece for the Yellowjackets (6-1), who play host to Susquehanna Valley today.

Three schools were tied or broken as Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton's boys and girls dominated a Midstate Athletic Conference meet.

B-G/A sophomore Ariana Hall broke the school record in the 100-meter hurdles, crossing in 16.9 seconds. The old record of 17.1 was first set by Kristy Cummings in 1995 and tied by Amy Olin in 2009. Hall also won the 200 in 28.7.

Hall's eighth-grade teammate, Julia Knapp, tied the school record in the 100, placing second in 12.7 seconds _ .7 behind Oxford's Katie Woodford. Knapp equaled the mark set by Jenn Frappier in 2006. Her big day also included victories in the long jump (16-2 1/2), high jump (4-10) and 400 hurdles (1:10.0), all personal-bests.
