It's Game On for Senior and Coed Softball!
With Jake Gusman going three-for-three, and knocking in two runs, En Fuego got last week's Senior Softball League (50 and over) action started, beating Maui 5-0 Gray 8-5.
Jus E Nuff remained unbeaten after routing Maui 5-0 Blue 16-2. Lance Higashi had a big game, going four-for-four, with six RBIs for Jus E Nuff.
Brenna White of the Youngstars (Fryer’s Division) looks for a teammate while being guarded by Keola Roback of Swag.
As usual, following the seniors, our Coed Softball League took over the field. Game one saw GSSM outslug Pitch Slap 18-13. Next, Boom defeated McEntire Realty 15-3.
The league leading Yard Sharks edged the Honey Badgers 17-13 to remain undefeated.
The last game of the night was tied 7-7, when it was called due to a serious injury to a player.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to Andrea "Smitty" Partney, who was struck in the face by a hit ball. Happy to report via several Facebook posts, that after an 18-hour surgery on O'ahu, she is home and doing well.
Youth Hoops Returns
Wednesday, Jan. 15 was to be opening day for the South Maui Youth Basketball League season, but for the first time in the league's 20 years, games had to be postponed due to rain.
The season finally got started on Tuesday, Jan. 21, with our Fryer's Division (7-8-year-olds). Our Junior Midgets (9-10-year-olds) Boys, and this year, a Girl's Division, as well as a Midgets Division (11-12-year-olds) all get underway over the next couple weeks.
Soon there will be kid's playing basketball at either Kamali'i School or Kalama Park five afternoons a week (see "South Maui Youth Basketball League Schedule."
