Men's and Women's Softball Results, 2008
The MSO softball tournament that has traditionally been such a spirited and well-attended event had a disappointing year as only 12 teams—including just two for the women—registered this year. Then, severe weather conditions rained out the scheduled weekend and forced some scrambling to complete medal-round play.
When all was completed Oct. 11 at Olney Manor Regional Park in Olney, the Spicers of Montgomery County, one of the nation's best senior teams, once again earned a berth to the National Senior Games. There were also some spirited games and lots of fun as two teams from St. Mary's County trekked to the tournament and Nutters Ice Cream of Washington County showed some spunk despite the poor manners of not bringing everyone some of that great ice cream served in downtown Sharpsburg.
