Election for 2018 KCMSSL Board of Directors

A record number of 321 ballots were placed in the election culminating with the Annual Meeting held on December 9th, 2017. Susan Scholler, Bobby Gregg, and Mark Splettstaszer were up for re-election. Jody Myers, who had filled the seat vacated by Bill Klinkenberg in 2015, declined to run for re-election. We appreciate Jody’s service during this tenure.
When the ballots were counted, the four slots were filled by five candidates as there was a tie among candidates. Bobby, Susan and Mark were re-elected, along with candidates, Rocky Osborn, who served from 2014 through 2016 and Barry Gordon who is new to the board. Congratulations to Susan, Bobby, Mark, Rocky and Barry. Also appreciated are the other candidates who stepped forward and professed a willingness to serve the greater softball community. These include Dave Barrigan, Terry Davis, Chuck Tipton, Gene Webb and Ann Willkett.

Above the Law Brings Home Gold
from World Masters

 Twenty-three teams participated in the women’s AAA level at the World Masters held from October 6tth through 8th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Above The Law won their three games on Friday but lost their first Saturday game in a 20-19 slugfest with Still Swinging from Nevada. With their backs against the wall, they gamely fought back to win the next two games to stay alive for the Sunday games. It took three wins to earn the right for a rematch with undefeated Still Swinging. After doing so, Above The Law, managed by Brenda Foreman, took both games with scores of 14-10 and 11-10.

Congratulated to Above The Law for winning gold. Still Swinging finished second, with Hawaiian Connect taking third and TABU from California taking fourth.
