Area softball teams set to begin summer league in Marlow

DUNCAN — Don’t look now, but  fast pitch softball season is just around the corner.

Starting Monday night at Southwest Park in Marlow, area teams will have the chance to start getting in shape for the upcoming season with the start of the Marlow summer league.

Games will be played every Monday night through Aug. 5.

Among the Stephens County schools that will be playing in addition to Marlow are Velma-Alma and Comanche, while Waurika will also be playing.

Other teams participating are Elgin, Sterling, Lindsay, Walters, Ninnekah and Chattanooga.

Comanche will be in action at 5 and 6:20 p.m. against Walters and Waurika, while the Lady Eagles will also be playing at the same times against Ninnekah in their first game of the evening.

Marlow’s Lady Outlaws will be in action at 7:40 and 9 p.m. against Sterling and Velma-Alma, while the Lady Comets will face Lindsay in their first game of the evening.

“We’ve only practiced twice so far this preseason,” Marlow coach Brian Miller said. “The good thing for us is that we’ve got nine out of 10 starters returning from last season. We’re further along this year than we were last year. These games are mainly going to be used for moving people around and getting an idea of who is going to be playing where this season.”

For head coach Lacy Darity and her Lady Comets squad, the summer league is about much of the same as V-A looks to improve on a solid season in 2012.

“Right now we’re just trying to get back into shape a little bit and knock some of the rust off,” Darity said. “I think it’s a good challenge for us going up against larger teams in summer league. We’ll use these games to see who gives us the best chance to win at every position. We’re excited and ready to start.” The second week of the summer league will include a Stephens County matchup between local rivals Comanche and Velma-Alma.

Marlow will meet Waurika in week two of the league, along with a game against Chattanooga.

There will be a chance for revenge in week three As MHS faces Lindsay, who eliminated the Lady Outlaws in the playoffs last season.

  • Duran Duran has one obstacle left: State

    Midway through her sophomore year, Comanche’s Alexis Duran had her athletic life taken away from her, but this spring she got it back in spectacular fashion.
    An ACL tear in basketball kept the three-sport star out for a full year before she got to compete again in track as a junior. Duran didn’t just show up and run, she pushed for medals and came just shy of making the state tournament, finishing one spot away by a tenth of a second.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
