ITP Takes home the tropy

In the past 10 weeks, you may have heard some hooting and hollering down at the ballfields.

In the past 10 weeks, you may have heard some hooting and hollering down at the ballfields. On Monday and Wednesday nights the Nakusp Slo Pitch League met on the fields and battled it out, playing alongside or against friends, neighbours, bosses, coworkers, family members and even local police officers.

There were a total of seven teams this year, and in the four years that the league has been up and running, this season has proven to be the closest competition yet.

All teams had their wins, even the favourite underdogs, The Breeders. Teams ranging from young to old, newbies to the game, old pros — all of them had one thing in common, the love of the game and having fun.

The coveted championship trophy was fought over once again between the two arch rivals, The Brew Jays and ITP. These two teams have met in the championship game three of the last four years, and even though the Brew Jays gave them a run for their money on Monday night, ITP remain the Nakusp Slo Pitch League Champions.

Full story will appear in next week’s Arrow Lakes News.
