Conor Moloney of Cape Elizabeth is one of those rare three-sport athletes in an age of specialization.

An outstanding basketball player, a pitcher in baseball and a golfer, Moloney moves from one sport to the next with ease.

On Friday, Moloney pitched a one-hitter in an 8-0 win over Falmouth that re-established the Capers as the team to beat in the Western Maine Conference. He had a perfect game through five innings.

In basketball, Moloney was a sharp-shooting guard/forward. But golf is the sport Moloney will focus on in college, at High Point University in North Carolina. Moloney said golf is his favorite sport, though it’s probably the one he has spent the least time working on. After baseball season is over, you can bet the left-hander will be on the links exclusively this summer.

AFTER A slow start, Westbrook is finally playing like the team that was predicted to be the favorite in Telegram League baseball. The Blue Blazes (9-2) beat defending Class A state champion Deering on Thursday to extend its winning streak to eight, though the streak ended Saturday with a 3-2 loss to Windham.
Westbrook has a big week ahead, with games against Cheverus and South Portland.
