Softball Scene: Chop Shop women’s team dices up softball competition

Let’s hope the performance by the Chop Shop women’s team this past weekend is an omen for local softball teams.

The Chop Shop squad finished second in the Amateur Softball Association Women’s Slowpitch Class C state finals hosted by the Avon softball complex. In doing so, the Chop Shop recorded wins over Swartz 5-2 and Horton’s 9-8. Their losses were to a powerful DDI squad by 15-9 and 13-11 scores.

Playing for Chop Shop are the following: Hope Downey, Angi Robins-King, Lindy Alspaugh, Nicole Ferguson, Kim Chaney, Kayla Raderstorf, Lacey Brown, Cindy Fulk, Megan Koers, Laura Mardis, Angi O’Bryan and Tracy Bennett.

For three of the Chop Shop players, the Labor Day national tourney will be their second summer softball trip to Florida. Downey, Robins-King and Chaney will be playing in the WSP 35-and-over national tourney the weekend of Aug. 8-10 at Ft. Myers, Fla. As they did last year, they will be playing for the Kimball International team out of Jasper.

Congrats and good luck to all the Chop Shop women in their future softball endeavors. Let’s hope the men’s teams can equal your success on the statewide level.
