Labour Day Clas­sic goes off with­out a hitch

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Sports - BY JONATHAN PAR­SONS

While this year’s Labour Day Clas­sic Slo-Pitch Soft­ball tour­na­ment in Clarenville was his­toric, incorporating a fe­male di­vi­sion this year, every­thing went off with­out a hitch look­ing ahead to next year’s 40th an­niver­sary of the pro­vin­cial tour­na­ment.

In the women’s di­vi­sion, Here for Beer took the top spot, while Kitty Katz were the run­ners-up.

As for the men’s di­vi­sions, the AFN Hit­men were the A di­vi­sion and over­all cham­pi­ons for the sec­ond year in a row, de­feat­ing the B di­vi­sion win­ners Stray Katz in the fi­nals.

In C di­vi­sion, Wheel­house Pub of Clarenville were vic­to­ri­ous, and in D, Gould Rules took the top spot.

Or­ga­nizer Scott Maid­ment told The Packet they were pleased with how the tour­na­ment went, see­ing ex­cel­lent both weather and play through­out the long week­end in both men’s and ladies di­vi­sions.

He says they’re al­ready look­ing for­ward to the 40th year for the event next Septem­ber.

“We will be plan­ning some­thing special next year for the tour­na­ment,” said Maid­ment.
