Roy-Hart then claimed its first sectional title with three narrow wins including 5-2 over Gowanda in the quarterfinals, 7-6 in nine innings over Southwestern in the semis and then 4-2 over rival Medina in the Section VI Class B2 title contest which was played at Gowanda.
Roy-Hart then bested B1 champion Olean 12-9 to earn its first Section VI Class B berth in the state playoffs.
Keeping the momentum, the Rams downed Section V champion Midlakes 10-1 at Rochester to win the Far West Regional title.
