Annual tourney recalls spirit of Konigsberg

The 14th annual Janie Konigsberg Memorial Tennis Tournament was held Saturday, June 14 at Liberty High School.

The tournament, which encourages local youngsters of varied levels, honors the memory of Konigsberg, who was a certified USTA teaching pro who coordinated many tennis programs in Carroll County. She passed away at a young age due to illness.

The tournament, though, organized by Liberty High School tennis coach Tim Brecker, helps to preserve her spirit of helping young people within the tennis community.

The tournament is for players ages 10 to 16 who play at an advanced beginner or intermediate level.

According to Brecker, many Carroll County high school champions -- including Brittany Bolster, Chris Brown, Stephanie O'Neil, Courtney Evans and Amanda DuBay -- have played in the tournament as they began their high school careers.

The following are the final results for the tournament.

*Women's Middle School Bracket -- Megan Blair defeated Alyssa Schledwitz, 6-3, 6-2.

*Men's Middle School Bracket -- Brian Conway defeated Owen Klasmeier, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.

*Women's High School Bracket -- Natalie Naused defeated Allie Rigby, 6-3, 6-0.

*Men's High School Bracket -- Sean Naylor defeated Greg Jackson, 7-5, 6-2.

Red stays on top adult fast-pitch league

The Reds continued their hold on first place in the Freedom Adult Fast Pitch League standings last week, downing the Freedom Wireless Blues, 10-8.

The Reds' closest competition, the White Team and Elite Fasteners, battled to a 14-14 deadlock in a game shortened by time limit.

Reds pitcher Buddy Widerman improved his team's record to 4-0 with one tie. Widerman struck out seven, going the distance while surrendering just four earned runs.

Blue kept Red at three runs until the top of the seventh inning, when the Reds exploded for seven tallies to take the lead. Blue went three up and three down in their half-inning.

In the game against the White, Elite rallied for eight scores in the bottom of the sixth to knot the score at 14-14. The big blow was Fasteners' shortstop Tim Simpson's grand slam homer over the left fielder's head, providing four of his five RBI on the night.

Later in the week, Elite defeated the Blue, 15-11. The club overcame a 5-2 deficit in the fourth with a 10-run outburst, then held on when the Blues scrambled back closer.

Todd Elliott led the way for Elite, reaching base in all four appearances at the plate, including an RBI triple. Outfielder Up Webb turned in the key play on defense for the Fasteners with a diving, shoestring catch with a runner on second base in the final frame.

Also later in the week, Red wound up on the losing end against the White team, 6-2, tightening the gap among the three front-runners.
