UP SOFTBALL ALL-STAR GAMEat Marquette
This first time event at Hurley Field in Marquette, like many UP Spring Sports this year, was marred by the weather. Rain postponed the second game of the scheduled doubleheader.
The first game was scoreless after six innings. The second game was stopped after the top of the first inning when rain, thunder and lightning made the field sloppy and unplayable.
Two Most Valuable Players were named. Both were pitchers. Megan Jean of Sault Ste. Marie was the North MVP while Rapid River's Neena Brockway was the South MVP.
The girls held a home run derby before the game. Megan Jean won in a bonus round.
