Co-Ed Tournament Makes Big Donation To Steve Heaton
D Sykes of Theresa went undefeated to win a Co-Ed Softball Tournament which produced constant action from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The One Pitch Nightmare proved to be a worry opponent in the finals but the D Sykes brought loose for a big fifth inning and claimed a 20-9 victory in the finals which featured outstanding defensive plays by both teams.
The tournament was organized by Jared McDonald to raise money for Steve Heaton's efforts to recover from disastrous fire which consumed his uninsured home and his belongings. Jared's grandmother, Mary McDonald, was on hand for the donation presentation to aid her longtime friend and who covered the city softball leagues, high school and youth sports for many years a sportswriter and photographer for The Journal and Advance News.
The nine teams in the tournament combined to produce a $2,185 donation.
"I can't say enough about the teams which played today and Jared McDonald who organized the tournament," said Heaton.
"We were just happy to do t. It was a great day of softball," said Jared McDonald of the tournament which involved strong representation from the men's and women's softball leagues in Ogdensburg.
