Bruso halts losing streak

Second-year minor league pitcher Greg Bruso stopped a personal four-game losing streak with a complete-game win over the Eastern League-leading New Haven Ravens on Wednesday.

The Norwich right-hander pitched all nine innings as Norwich roughed up the Ravens 8-2. It was his second complete game in 11 starts for the last-place Navigators.

He allowed five hits and two earned runs while striking out five and walking one.

Bruso (5-4 and 3.42 earned run average), a 1998 South Tahoe High grad, received all the runs he needed on Adam Shabala’s three-run double in the third inning. Michael Cervenak added a two-run double in the fifth and Doug Clark finished off the Ravens by homering in the eighth.

Bruso pitched well in his previous outing — a 2-1 defeat to Trenton on Aug. 8 — allowing seven hits and two earned runs in 7 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two.

New volleyball coach sets practice times

New South Tahoe High varsity volleyball coach Janae Nead will hold team tryouts on Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to noon in the school’s gold gym.

Nead coached the Vikings’ junior varsity last year and is replacing Gary Hankoff, who resigned last month.

The team will continue to use the gold gym during the preason since the blue gym floor is being worked on.
