On August 5 and 6, 2017, the 4th Annual Co-ed Boosters Softball Tournament took place at the Fairfax Baseball Field. In previous years, the class of 2017 has held this tournament to raise money for their class. This year, the tournament had been passed down to the class of 2019.
The morning of the 5th started as a rainy morning, but turned into a great day as all 8 teams gathered at the field to start the tournament. Before we knew it, the first day was over and we were already setting up for the final game. The final score was 25-16, and the title of the 2017 Softball Tournament went to the Semi Pros.
A big thank you to everyone who donated to the class and who came out to support us over the weekend.
