Sunday Sports: More Competition For The Watertown Wolves, 2 New FHL TeamsPosted: Updated:
While the 2018 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League season ended Friday for the Watertown Rapids, a new season began after the final out. Rapids General Manager, Brandon Noble, is already busy formulating new ideas for the 2019 rapids season.
Noble says after taking some time off over the next few weeks, he will be back at work preparing for next season. Noble, who took over as General Manager a few months before the start of the season, will have a big advantage heading into next year with a full 10 months to plan promotions, ticket sales and work with advertisers.
Now that the Collegiate Baseball League season is over, it's time to look ahead to the Federal Hockey League season, which begins in October. Over the past few weeks, the league has added 2 new teams to the mix: Elmira and Mentor, Ohio, bringing the total number of teams to 6. Watertown Wolves coach, Trevor Karasiewicz, says he is excited to have both cities join the league.
Section 3 has responded to officials who stated they may not make themselves available to work games unless a new contract between them and the section is hammered out before the start of the fall sports season.
Neil O'Brien, Superintendent of Port Byron and Chief Negotiator for Section 3 said "students should never be used as poker chips in a conflict between adults".
Officials have been without a contract since June of 2017 and said they will not work under terms of the old contract like they did last year while negotiations continued.
