Post Season Congratulations from Coach G
Congratulations are just a little late for several teams that participated in the Western Kentucky Baseball Softball Association this past summer. Teams in the WKBSA are from the counties of Livingston, McCracken, Ballard, and Metropolis, Illinois.
The 9 and under softball team with Head Coach Eric Wring were champs of both the regular season and the season ending tournament. These young ladies were undefeated and played outstanding softball all summer. Fundamentally sound in the field and at the plate, they represented Livingston County with great sportsmanship and team pride throughout the summer.
Tim Chittenden guided the 13 and under softball team to a runner-up finish in the season ending tournament. These ladies came oh so close to being crowned champions of their division.
On the baseball side, Jerrod Quertermous coached a 12 and under team to a season and tournament 2nd place finish. Team members were Tate Quertermous, Cameron Head, Talon Cockrel, T'Roy Ringstaff, Wyatt Williams, Devon Meeks, Devon Ramage, Gage Dedmon, Cole Wood, Wyatt Jaco, and Jake Gibson. His asst coaches were Greg Ringstaff and Justin Kittle.
In the high school division, Greg Vincent coached Livingston County to both regular season and tournament titles. This group suffered one regular season loss but tha ran over its opponents in the tournament, outscoring the opposition by a 60-5 score. Tournament team members were Jay Vincent, Colton Ramage, Austin Wright, Keegan Gillette, Logan Curnel, Payton Curnel, Matthew Gilland, Dalton Gilbert, Cameron Dean, and Noah Rittenberry.
While we are on the subject of baseball and softball let us tell you some things going on at the county ball fields. If you have driven by or taken a walk on the trail you may have noticed some painting and field work being done. By spring we hope to have all of the dugouts, foul poles, and light poles painted. New bases have been ordered and have arrived for all of the fields. All of the fields are getting a makeover. Will we get it all done by spring, the weather will have a lot do with that answer, but we are sure trying. If you walk you may even notice that we are doing our best to keep the trail clear of leaves and debris to make your walk more enjoyable.
These upgrades are being made so that you will hopefully enjoy your nite at the ballpark and also encourage you to get out and cheer on all of the local teams when they play at home next spring and summer.
There is nothing like a night at the ballpark with a hotdog, bag of popcorn and a soda. See you there.
