Co-ed Softball Back In Action

The co-ed adult softball teams were back in action Monday night after a two-week layoff (the first week was because of Good Old Days and Fourth of July, and last week was due to a rain-out).

In the first game of the evening, the Stonebridge Farmers jumped out to a quick two to nothing lead in the top half of the first inning over their opponents Shake N’ Bake. But the Bakers answered the bell with three tallies of their own in the bottom half of the opening frame. From there, the two teams were scoreless over the next inning in a half. In the home

David Versus Goliath

McHeaters didn’t actually lose, 17 to 8, to the Paddy Whackers in Monday night first game; it’s just that they ran out of time (the games are seven innings or one hour, which ever comes first). The Whackers let loose an unabated storm of runs on their opponents starting with the first innings. They scored four runs in the first, a couple more in the second, six in the third inning,

Quarry Workers and Whackers Roll

The sparse crowd at Monday night’s six o’clock game was treated to a classic! The Stonebridge Farmers tangled with the Chamber Rockers, and finally started to show the “stuff” that made them last year’s adult co-ed league champions. The Farmers planted the seeds for victory with a single run in the top half of the opening frame, but the

Also Rans Gain Ground On BMS

Undefeated Blue Mountain Stone got the night off Monday evening on the adult co-ed softball schedule of games in Bohn Park, and a pack of “also rans” used the league leaders’ respite to nip at the heels of the “Big Dog!”  The Natural Disasters, McHeaters, and the Paddy Whackers, all sporting 2 – 1 records, seized the opportunity and won their respective contests to pull within a half a game of the Quarryworkers.

In the six o’clock game between the Natural Disasters and Fast Signs, it was the Disasters that got off to a fast start. Scoring seven runs

Adult Co-Ed Softball Back In Action

There was no sign of rust from any of the adult co-ed softball teams after the Memorial Day weekend lay-off. Monday night’s games were exciting and well played, with timely hitting and some great glove work in the field.

The opening game pitted the always-entertaining Hooligans against the Paddy Whackers. The Hoolies, looking resplendent in their new jerseys and caps, came out swinging and posted two runs in the first inning. Unfortunately for the Hooligans, that was the last time they led

Watch Out For The Insurance Run

Watch Out For The Insurance Run

The Hooligans were attempting to get their first win of the season Monday night. Unfortunately, they were trying to get that win against Fast Signs, who were still licking their wounds from the drubbing they took last week, at the hands of the Blue Mountain Bullies. Needless to say, Fast Signs was in no mood for any shenanigans from the Hooligans. The Hoolies got off to a quick start, going up one to zip in their half of the first. That was the last lead they saw. Fast Signs spanked the Hooligans with five runs in the bottom of the first, two more in

By Renée Haip
In their quest for a third repeat of double gold, the Lyons Lions traveled to the Colorado State Track and Field Championships where the Lady Lions were expected to have a legitimate battle with Paonia and 2A-newcomer Hotchkiss, as well as their usual worthy eastern plains’ competitor, Akron. Senior Nola Basey led the charge with her superior jumping abilities by taking the high jump win on day one with 5’4”. Basey unleashed a personal record breaking leap of 17’-7.5” in the long jump to take the win by more than a foot on day two. Had the
