It was a beautiful day for some softball on Saturday, June 10. Five teams fought for the coveted trophy that would be given to the winning team. It was finally down to two teams--Providence and Mt. Nebo. Both teams gave it their all and after regulation the score was tied. Into extra inning it went. Finally, Providence scored the winning run and retained their trophy for another year. Thanks to everyone who came out and rooted for their favorite team! See you next year!
The Winners - Providence!
