The Kimball White team played to a 2 and 3 record, while the Kimball Blue played to a 2 and 2 record. This is the second straight year that Kimball has sent a team to the State in 12U softball. The Kimball White team played all day on Saturday, as they played four games back to back in the heat of the day. The gifts played many teams that were older and played many more games than we did. They did a wonderful job all sea- son long. They ended the season with 19 wins and 7 losses. I would. like to thank the many people who helped and supported the teams all season. Thanks to the players for committing themselves to the sport, the parents for also making the commitment to their daugh- ters, and the support at the games. Also, thanks to the coaches that give up much of their time to help these girls improve their skills. The coaches are Sean O'brien, Patty Shiefelbein, and Bob Merchant for the Kimball Blue, and Linda Mer- chant for Kimball White. You all did a great job. Can't wait to see these girls in high school together. Thanks to everybody. Above, Kari Schiefelbein tosses in one of her many pitches at the state tournament.

Both teams (white and blue) can be proud for their good efforts and showing at the 12U Fastpitch State Tournament held Saturday, Ju- ly 30, in Becket. Teams from all over the state came to play ball. The competition was tough, as well as tile elements. They played in rain, sweltering heat, and dusty, windy conditions. Both teams played multiples games and fought a hard battle. Both teams had very successful seasons and they have a lot to be proud of. Submitted photos. Jeff Dockendorf of Watkins with his market lamb at the Stearns County Fair Blue Ribbon Auction.
