Soccer season on horizon for AMI kids

Boys of summer
Members of the traveling Islanders youth baseball team stand for a group photograph earlier this summer. The team includes David Pate, front row from left, Garrison Clark, Chris Pate, Hunter Parrish, Henrick Brusso, Mike Brusso; second row, from left, Lee Bergeron, Jerry Mayer, Max Moneuse, Jonah Caster, Daniel Pimentel, Trevor Bystrom, William Brusso and Alex Burgess; and back row from left, Chris Moneuse and Bill Bystrom.

Soccer tryouts for the Anna Maria Island Community Center’s recreational league will be concluded by Aug. 30, meaning another great season of youth soccer is just around the corner.

Uniform handouts and the always popular Beach Bistro-sponsored spaghetti dinner is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 18, while “spirit week,” when parents and fans compete with each other over which team has the best fans, takes place Sept. 19-22.

Picture day will be Sept. 22 and the regular season gets started on Sept. 24, although the teams and schedule are yet to be announced.

Anyone interested in working as a linesman - or lineswoman - for the upcoming soccer season is asked to contact Center athletic director Andy Jonatzke by Sept. 10. For more information, call Jonatzke at 941-778-1908.

 

Calling all high school athletes

The 2007 school year is back in session, which means another great year of high school sports. Fall sports include girl’s volleyball and cross country, golf and swimming and diving for boys and girls and, of course, the king of high school sports, football.

Winter sports include basketball and soccer for boys and girls in addition to girl’s weightlifting and boys wrestling.

The sport seasons wrap up in the spring with boy’s weightlifting, track and field, tennis, softball and baseball.

If you’re an Islander and are participating in or coaching any of the above-mentioned sports at school, please, give us a call so we can highlight your accomplishments in The Islander.

 

Horseshoe news

Jay Disbrow and John Johnson rolled past Tom Rhodes and Sam Samuels by a 22-7 score to earn the Aug. 22 bragging rights during horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall pits.

John Johnson was in the winner’s circle for the Aug. 18 proceedings as well, teaming up with George McKay as the only undefeated team after pool play. Hank Huyghe and Debbie Rhodes claimed second place, defeating Steve Doyle and Bill Bartlett and the team of Sam Samuels and Tom Rhodes.

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.

 

Key Royale golf news

The Key Royale Club men played an 18-hole partner’s low-net golf tournament on Aug. 22. Kris Collins and Bob Kelly combined for a 1-over-par 129 to claim clubhouse bragging rights for the day. Three shots back was the team of Bob Jorgensen and Don Ledford with a 4-over-132, while Vince Mercadante and Bob Proxy finished in third place with a 133.

Bob Jorgensen and Jim Dunne each fired a 1-under par-31 to tie for first place in the Aug. 20, nine-hole individual-low-net tournament. Four golfers - John Atkinson, Jim Finn, John Heiselman and Charlie Knopp - matched par 32 to tie for second place.

The Aug. 17 nine-hole coed tournament saw the team of Jane Winegarden, Jerry Brown and Frankie Smith-Williams match the 56 that Jeanette Cashman, Al Morgan and Don Ledford carded to tie for first in the two-best-balls-of-foursome tourney.
