Adult Coed Softball

Town Hall Sports Coordinator Richard Mozeleski gave this report on adult coed softball standings through Aug. 2.

Well, race fans, it was quite a week at Idyllwild School field. Pacific Slope is still comfortably out front of the group by a couple of lengths, with Forest Lumber and Team Ajax nipping at the heels galloping stride for stride at 7 and 2 each.

But watch out, because here comes Creekstone Inn picking up speed after coming slowly out of the gate. They came up a head on Idyllwild Arts going into the third turn with two weeks of games to go. Both are fighting to be in the money at the fourth spot. Hold your breath, folk.

 

Standings (July 27-Aug. 2)

Team Wins, Losses

Pacific Slope 7, 0

Forest Lumber 7, 2

Ajax 7, 2

Creekstone Inn 5, 3

Idyllwild Arts 3, 3

Perez 3, 6

Ridgeline Roofing 1, 8

Adult Coed Soccer

In other news, Mozeleski said a much-needed rain slowed down adult soccer development Saturday, but all intentions are to keep pushing to get adult teams uniformed and playing this month. So get your individual names or teams to Richard at 909-241-2662.

Also, those wanting to be involved in coaching youth soccer, a Live Scan (required) is scheduled at Town Hall on Saturday, Aug. 16. Call 951-659-2638. There is no cost.

 

Golf

Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, reported on the Friday, July 17, golf tournament at The Country Club at Soboba Springs.

It was a beautiful day and the course was in excellent shape.

This was the last regular tournament of the year, and the results determined the top eight point finishers to play in a series of single-elimination stroke play tournaments during the regular tournaments for the next three months to determine the club champion.

The club champ will represent the club in the Southern California Tournament of Club Champions in December.

In this tourney, John Brower (course handicap 10), John LoGiudice (19) and Dan Slattery (26) tied for first place with net 66s. Crandall (12) and Gary Brown (13) tied for fourth with net 67s to round out the top five.

The closest-to-the-pin winners on the four par 3s were Bill Ragland on hole numbers 4 and 8, Crandall on hole no. 13 and Brown on hole no. 15.

Here are the final year-to-date point standings of the 2013-14 season that ran from August through July.
