Summer heats up, sports in slow gear on AMI

With only a few youth flag football games this week in the heat and kids scattered on vacations and visits to grandfolks in other parts of the country and world, sports action was slow to come by last week.

  However, members of the Key Royale Club managed to play some rounds and report some scores. The ladies played a nine-hole tournament on June 12 and identified individual low-net winners and lowest combined team putts.

  Josie Womble fired a 3-under-par 29 to capture first place in the first flight by three shots over Tootie Wagner, who shot even-par 32. Second-flight winner was Terry Westby, who shot even-par 32 to win by one shot over Pat Rice at 33.

  The team of Nancy King, Pat Rice, Dee Bassett and Norma Moran-Shearer negotiated the nine-hole course in 64 putts to win the team putting contest. Second place went to the team of Linda Kelly, Roswitha Fowler, Nancy Grimme and Frankie Smith-Williams with 66 total putts.

Horseshoe news

  Seven teams were whittled down to two teams during June 9 horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. The team of Sam Samuels and Norm Good along with Ron Pepka and Ron Slagh were the only undefeated teams in pool play so they faced off in a winner-take-all game. Samuels and Good came out on top with a 22-15 victory to claim bragging rights for the day.

  The June 13 horseshoe action was on the verge of being rained out, but four hard-core shoers hung around and managed to get some throws in. Ron Slagh and Sam Samuels took three out of four games from Ron Pepka and Steve Doyle to win the day’s proceedings.

  Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warmups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.

Join Her-icane golf challenge

The Manatee High School Her-icanes girls soccer team is hosting a fundraising golf tournament at the Bradenton Country Club at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8. The team uses the money for uniforms, warm-up suits and tournament travel.

For a $100 donation, players can test their golf skills at Bradenton's most exclusive and challenging layout in a four-person scramble.

All players registered before the Aug. 1 deadline will receive a goody bag, cart and greens fees, a post-tourney banquet and guaranteed fun throughout the day. Also on tap are a straightest-drive contest, two closest-to-the-pin contests, a putting contest and raffles for tons of prizes. The field is limited to the first 100 golfers, so don't delay.

The Her-icanes are also looking for tournament sponsors to help their cause. For $800, a business can purchase the Hat Trick package, consisting of a foursome, banquet, tee or green sign on the course and a banner that will be displayed at all Manatee Her-icane home soccer games. A golden goal sponsorship package includes a foursome and a tee or green sign on the course for $500, or a tee or green sign for the tournament for $125.

To sign up a foursome, list the four players and each players phone number and send the list with a check payable to Manatee Girls Soccer Booster. Mail it to me, Her-icane coach Kevin Cassidy at 2011 79th St. N.W., Bradenton FL 34209. For more information, call me at 941-807-1105.
