Several teams remain in the hunt

EBS STAFF

With the final summer breezes closing in on the Big Sky softball season, competition is fierce heading into the final week.

As of press time on Aug. 19, Hillbilly Huckers at 12-2 held onto a narrow half-game lead over 11-2 Country Market, while the Yellowstone Club at 10-3 rounded out the top three. Four other teams remain in the hunt for the championship game, set for Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fans have flocked to the community park ball fields in droves to watch the competitions, which began in early June. New league commissioner Lee Horning, also shortstop for the Huckers, has had his hands full this season but the community bands together to support this summer game.

The Big Sky Community Corp., which oversees and maintains the park, along with scores of volunteers help make softball in Big Sky a continued success.

Come out and support your teams over the next week and during the league tournament, scheduled for Aug. 28-30. Play ball!
