Huskies were firing on all cylinders on Tuesday at the Cove, downing the Frankfort

Falcons, 10-0, in a game shortened to six innings because of the 10-run rule. Shown

above, Morgan Rush gets her uniform dirty on a steal of second base, with a head-first

slide to easily beat the throw from the Falcons' catcher. Rush finished 3 for 4 with a

pair of RBIs. Below, Morgan Marple pulls a ball to the left side of the infield for one of

her two singles on the day. She also drove in a pair of runs for the Huskies, who are

now 4-4 on the season. Northern will host Southern this afternoon, with the first pitch

slated for 4:45 p.m. To see these photos by Bob Carney and others from this event in

mal Shelter and meet them. "They would like to be adopted together," noted a Garrett

County Humane Society spokesperson. At right is Bobby, a young black cat who was

the spokesperson said. "These and other pets, including some of the last few week's

dogs, are available for adoption," the spokesperson noted. "HART recently took some

cats and a few dogs to rescue." For more information, persons may call the animal
