Schoharie senior Rich Martino stole four bases in Saturday’s 4-3 win over Mekeel Christian Academy to boost his season theft total to 17 and career total to 50.

Martino is chasing the school steals record of 52, held Cody LaBadia. LaBadia graduated three years ago and is currently competing for Southern Vermont.

Martino hit two-out single to kick-start a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning in Saturday’s Western Athletic Conference win.

Steve Brooks singled after Martino singled, and Connor Brown was intentionally walked. Devin Brooks hit an RBI single, another run came home on an error, and freshman Noah Valvo won the game with an RBI single.
