Softball: Quick start leads Newark over Milford in 1A sectional semifinal

Norsemen put up multiple runs in each inning; Kodi Rizzo tosses no-hitter against the Bearcats

“As a coach, you always are wondering if your team is ready to go. Well, they showed me right away in the first inning today that they were.”

—  Newark softball coach Tim Schofield

“Things are just clicking for me at the plate right now, I really don’t know how else to explain the last couple of games, to be honest.”

—  Newark's Emily Schofield

I worked for 25 years as a CNC operator and in 2005 answered an ad in The Times for a freelance sports writer position. I became a full-time sports writer/columnist for The Times in February of 2016. I enjoy researching high school athletics history, and in my spare time like to do the same, but also play video games and watch Twitch.
