Wabash Valley softball teams make noise at Kokomo tournaments

TERRE HAUTE — Wabash Valley softballers are hoping that the Indiana Amateur Softball Association will be scheduling more tourney play in Kokomo in the near future. In addition to the Clabber Girl MSP Class “C” earned earlier this summer in Kokomo, area co-ed teams returned from Kokomo with a first, second and fourth-place finish in a 31-team tourney.

Chop Shop emerged from the losers’ bracket to defeat Terre Haute First Financial twice to win the Indiana ASA Coed Novice state crown. In doing so, Chop Shop recorded wins over Diamonds 10-4, DHI 15-4, Cottonwood Corner 16-14, Heilmann’s 7-2 and TH First Financial 12-8 and 16-4. Chop Shop was dropped into the losers’ bracket following an 11-1 loss to TH First Financial.

Playing for the Chop Shop team were the following players: Angi Robins-King, Richard King, Darren Chaney, Kim Chaney, Rick Robins, Hope Downey, Bruce Downey, Megan Koers, Jeff Long, Jason Long, Gary Potter, Cathy Alspaugh, Lindy Alspaugh, Jason Hinton and Cindy Fulk.

In addition, Cottonwood Corner from Brazil took home a fourth-place finish.

Several other local teams participated in the state finals. Unfortunately, the final results are unavailable at this time.

Congrats to all the local coed squads for their great showing.

Another local team was making their mark recently when the Chop Shop women’s team competed in the ASA WSP Class “D” National Tournament in Orlando, Fla.

The Chop Shop team opened tourney play with a 12-9 loss to Diehard, then reeled off wins over The Guzzlers 10-0, Wild One 14-6 and Twisted 14-13 before being eliminated with a 13-11 loss to the Lady Sharks. Chop Shop’s 3-2 record was good enough for seventh place in the 21-team affair.

Good job to the Chop Shop women’s team.
