Over 35/40 softball teams compete at tourney

The New Prague Boys Basketball Association sponsored the 33rd Over 35/40 softball classic on Saturday, Sept. 8, at Memorial Park in New Prague.

Teams Pass, City Club, Milinkovich and Guentzel competed in the Over 35 division, and Teams Prochaska, Gill, Kartak and Wagner competed in the Over 40 division.

The weather cooperated, as teams played softball with some dazzling plays in field and at the plate.

Team Guentzel fought off all competitors in the Over 35 division, going undefeated. Team Pass was at 2-1, City Club 1-2 and Milinkovich 0-3 for the day.

In the Over 40 division, Team Gill beat Team Prochaska to finish with a 1-2 record, while Team Prochaska went 0-3 for the day.

The final game featured two unbeaten teams in the Over 40 division - Team Kartak, led by Steve Kartak, facing Team Wagner, engineered by Leroy Wagner.

After a back-and-forth battle, Team Wagner sealed the victory, setting up the heated best two-out-of-three Euchre match, with Team Guentzel to crown the overall champion.

Team Wagner won the first match with ease like the veterans they are, but as they did all day Team Guentzel rose to the challenge, taking the last two matches and winning the overall championship.

The basketball association thanks all the teams, participants and fans who turned out for the day. Special thanks go to the parents of players and members of the association who helped make the tournament successful.
