Makenzie Wagner is Bucks new all-time hits leader | News, Sports, Jobs

Bucktail’s Makenzie Wagner became the program’s all-time hits leader, passing Jordan Burrows previous mark of 90.

The Bucks expected to win Wednesday afternoon as they travelled to the winless Columbia Montour Vo-Tech and they did so handedly, 21-0, after just three innings.

The win moves Bucktail to 4-2, dropping CMVT to 0-9.

The Bucktail record books have been rewritten since coach Mike Poorman took over the program, yet another one fell on Wednesday.

Junior Makenzie Wagner became the all-time hits leader following a 3 for 4 performance that moved her to 92 career base knocks. Jordan Burrows had held the record at 90.

“The fact that she did this just six games into her junior season is absolutely ridiculous,” assistant coach Roy Cowfer said of Wagner, lauding praise on the hit machine.

Wagner also took the win from the mound as she pitched just the top of the first, before freshman Lola English and Makenna Stone each did one inning of work as well. The three combined for a no-hitter.

With the Rams struggling at the plate, the Bucks swung their way to 22 hits, led by freshman Eva Sockman’s 4 for 4 performance that included a game-high five RBIs.

Haley Burrows and Stone joined Wagner in the three-hit department as Lily Francis, Matti Mason and Kayla Probert each had two while English, Kendall Wagner and Cecilia Shaffer each added 1.

Bucktail is on the road again Friday at 4-3 Sullivan County and at Jersey Shore Monday before returning home next Tuesday and Wednesday.
