Arkport-Canaseraga Baseball wins state title

VESTAL, N.Y. (WETM) – It was a dream realized for Arkport-Canaseraga.

The team secured its first New York State Baseball Championship as a combined program Saturday at Binghamton University. Arkport-Canaseraga beat Section III’s Oriskany 4-0. Micah Marvin pitched a standout performance in the game.

Marvin threw a four-hit shutout totaling 10 scoreless innings on the mound pitching in both the state semis and finals. It was ninth-straight win to end the season for Arkport-Canaseraga (18-3). Arkport won the 2009 state title as a solo program 15 years ago.

Marvin struck out three batters but allowed no walks and no runs in an error-free outing.

After a leadoff double in the third inning, Tayven Lavetsky scored on an error giving the Wolves a 1-0 edge. Lavetsky would later score another run in the fifth on a delayed steal attempt on a wild throw making it a 2-0 game.

Arkport-Canaseraga added another run in the fifth courtesy of a Breyer Drake RBI single.

Oriskany had previously scored 52 runs in five postseason games before being shutout Saturday. Arkport-Canaseraga head coach Nick Smith was the catcher on Arkport’s 2009 state title team. Saturday was not just a moment for him, but the entire Arkport-Canaseraga community to bask in as state champs.
