Southern Plains softball wound up the regular season over the past week as they dodged various storms that rumbled their way across the area for a number of days. The Majors division (ages 11-12) managed to get their tournament played on Friday with Cheyenne Wells coming out as champions. The Minors tournament was played on Monday after numerous weather delays, but results were not available at press time. Details of that tournament will be included in next week’s edition.
The tournaments were held in Eads this year. All-Stars were announced as the various teams were eliminated. Southern Plains will field two all-star teams including the 10-Year-Old All-Stars (10U) and 12-Year-Old All-Stars (12U).
The All-Star teams consist of players from Holly, Eads, and Cheyenne Wells.
The 10-Year-Old All-Star team includes two from Holly, two players from Cheyenne Wells, and 8 players from Eads. There were also three alternates named. They include: Idaly Rodriguez (H), Toryn Neugebauer (H), Hannah Gilmore (CW), Kallie Ball (CW), Bailey Sierra (E), Kennedy Gyurman (E), Kinsley Williams (E), Savannah Brown (E), Aspen Nelson (E), Peyton Eder (E), Jordynn Turcotte (E), and Reese Barnett (E).

They are setting their schedule now and looking at two to three weekends.
