Basketball seedings set as playoffs approach

The regular season of the Anna Maria Island Community Center youth basketball league has come to an end and the seedings are set for the playoffs, which get started at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, with the Premier Division semi-finals. In addition to playoff games Saturday, there will be all-star games throughout the day and the ever-popular coaches games at 7 p.m.

Each divisional playoff, save for Division II where Sand Dollar has run away with the regular-season title, appears to be at least a two-horse race. Premier Division has Rotten Ralphs and A Paradise Realty separated by only one game in the standings and Bradenton Prep has come on late in the season to finish with a 5-5 record. The Division I favorite appears to be Dips Ice Cream, but Fronius has bested them. Division III is another wide-open playoff race with Ross Built and Jessie’s Island Store separated by one game in the regular-season standings.

The playoffs get started Feb. 14 with championship games set for Feb. 16 and Feb. 17 so stay tuned to the Islander for complete results.

The team of Cindi Mansour, Cindy Miller, Mary Selby and Penny Williams won the team low-putt competition with 69, while Miller also birdied hole six.

The Key Royale Club men played an 18-hole, best-ball-of-foursome match on Feb. 4. The team of John Sagert, Dick Eichorn, Neil Hammer and Peter Proxy ran away with the days bragging rights with an impressive, 8-under-par 56.

Horseshoe news

Four teams advanced from pool play during Feb. 7 horseshoe competition at the Anna Maria City Hall pit. Fellow New Hampshire visitors Bob Lee and Mike Lovy skunked Debbie Rhodes and Tom Skoloda 23-0 to advance to the finals where they met Norm Good and Robet Sheating, who bested Bob Brown and Al Norman 21-15. The finals saw Lee and Lovy run away with bragging rights for the day on the strength of a 24-11 victory over Good and Sheating.

The Feb. 4 games saw three teams advance with three wins during pool play.
