It was an all-Carroll County show in the 10-under and 12-under baseball teams finals last week as The Four Seasons indoor athletic facility held its postseason championships.Carroll County teams also played for championships in most of the Four Seasons' soccer and softball leagues.

In the 12-under final, New Windsor, which had won only two regular-season games, upset Mount Airy, 3-1.

David Musil, David Reaver and Steven Reichert scored the runs, and pitchers Reaver, Reichert and Zach Couturioux held Mount Airy.

Mount Airy, first during the regular season, scored when Peter D'Amour singled home Rick Shipley in the third inning after New Windsor had taken a 3-0 lead in the top of the inning.

The Mount Airy 10-under squad was more successful, taking a 3-2 title game from Manchester.

Eric Laverick singled home Justin Cavey to win it with two out in the final inning.

Mount Airy tied it 2-2 on Chris Hood's RBI single in the second.

Town Pride, a regular-season second to Rubenstine Masonry in the Tuesday night adult softball division, compensated by beating Rubenstine, 4-1, for the postseason title.

The winners, who had averaged over 10 runs per game during the regular season, turned to a strong defense in the finale.

Towne Pride used four double plays to stifle Rubenstine, which had beaten the locals, 9-8, to give it its only loss.

Wheeler Chrysler Plymouth also brought home a softball trophy to Carroll County by topping Larson Electric, 11-1, for the Monday league title.

Glenn Monroe pitched the complete-game championship win for Wheeler, and Brian White, Robin Seipp and Mike Beam were the offensive leaders in the contest.
