Co-ed softball champions
There is a new dynasty brewing in the Yuma Recreation Department’s Co-ed Softball League.
Keven Means Construction’s more than 25-year reign as champions of the co-ed league came to an end last summer at Jenny Wayne’s High Octane knocked off means for the title. Many of the same players were back again this year, but under the sponsorship of Log Cabin Liquor.
The double-elimination tournament began Sunday, July 23, with 3 Bros. Warehouse beating Yuma Feedlot 15-5, and Smithfield knocking off Country Well & Pump 13-10.
Second-round action featured Log Cabin taking the field, beating 3 Bros. 14-4, and Andrews Brothers Seed beat back Smithfield 17-7.
The first elimination games were played in the third round, earlier last week, as Smithfield knocked out Yuma Feedlot with an 18-10 win, and Country Well and Pump eliminated 3 Bros with a tight 14-13 win.
Log Cabin remained unbeaten in the winners’ bracket, beating Andrews Brothers Seed 16-8.
The next elimination game saw Smithfield knock off Country Well and Pump, 18-12. The Hogs then extracted revenge for its earlier loss to Andrews Brothers Seed, claiming a 10-0 win to reach the championship, last Wednesday night.
However, Log Cabin proved to be too tough, holding off Smithfield for a 15-7 win and the Yuma Recreation Department Co-ed Softball championship.
Playing on the team were Russ Griggs, Taryn Blomstrom, Molly Oestman, Josh Newbury, Casey English, Katie Savolt, Roxanne Seigrist, Black Roth, Mackenzie Twiss, Tara Odell, Edgar Trejo and Jaden Koenig.
