Triple Crown comes to end


— For five local teams, this weekend's Adult Slow Pitch Softball Summer Nationals proved wins are hard to come by.

The Softball Nationals are part of Triple Crown Sports. The tournament featured 75 teams in seven divisions.

Steamboat teams competed in Men's B/C, Men's E, Women's Upper and Mixed Lower leagues.

"There's much more local participation in this tournament," said Patty Harsch, tournament director and Triple Crown Sports national softball director. "There's a great mix of out-of-state teams that give the local teams a chance to play some great teams in their own backyard."

The only local team to notch a win during the weekend was B & K Distributing/Pioneer Materials. Playing in the Men's E league, the team was able to defeat Bad Habits 15-5.

The Adult Slow Pitch Softball Summer Nationals was the last championship tournament of the summer in Steamboat.
