SOFTBALL: Maidens beat Polar Bears on Senior Day
WAYNESBORO – Five days after a thrilling come-from-behind extra-innings win over Greencastle-Antrim (9-8), the Waynesboro Maidens varsity softball team continued their winning ways with an 8-5 triumph against Northern York on Tuesday.
The win, the Maidens sixth in a row, was Waynesboro’s 11th against three losses. The Maidens are 9-2 in the Mid-Penn Colonial Division with three league games remaining.

Waynesboro jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second stanza, but the Polar Bears scored a single run in the fourth and two in the fifth to tie the game.
The Maidens tallied a run in the bottom of the fifth and then Shetler belted a grand slam in the home sixth to give Waynesboro some insurance runs.
