A number of area men traveled to St. George, Utah recently to participate in the 2010 World Senior Games. Local seniors 60s softball team took the Gold Medal for 1st place achievement. The area players included: Max Adams, Shady Cove, Jim Hale, Rogue River, Larry Pepper, Rogue River, Ted Schroder, Medford, Gordon Syphers, Klamath Falls and six Eugene men. They formed the Cascade Irrigation team.
After falling in their first game, Cascade Irrigation turned into Cascade “Irritation” winning all seven games in the loser’s bracket to bring home the gold. T hey defeated two teams from Canada, one team each from Utah, Washington, New Mexico, Nevada and a very tough California team. It was a job well done.
