DuBOIS — Baseball and softball games between the DuBois Central Catholic Cardinals and the DuBois Area High School Beavers brought the community together during the third annual “City Classic” games Saturday.
In the first game, the Central Catholic Cardinals baseball team defeated the DuBois Area Beavers, 10-1, at Showers’ Field. It was the first time the Cardinals have beaten the Beavers at the ‘City Classic.’
In the second game, which was held at the new Rose and Dennis Heindl Memorial Field in the DuBois City Park, the DuBois Lady Beavers softball team thrilled the crowd with a late-game rally to defeat the Lady Cardinals 6-5. The two teams are now even in the ‘City Classic’ games since this is the second year the softball teams have participated in the event.
“Once again, it was a beautiful day for two great schools to get to play on some of the premier parks in our area, if not the entire state,” said city Manager John “Herm” Suplizio. “it was nice to see the whole community come out and support both schools. Both games had an excellent crowd. I cannot thank everyone enough for all the help and support and getting both schools to put on such a great event for our community.”
