WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS — September 5, 2006 — Several team and individual trophies were presented when the Sullivan County Women’s Softball League (SCWSL) held its annual awards picnic on August 26 at the White Sulphur Springs Firemen’s Park.
The players in attendance also elected their league officers for 2007 at the event. Two of this year’s officers, President Theresa Nietzel and Secretary Darlene Malewit, were reelected for next season. The new officers will be Vice President Robyn Gannon and Treasurer Kathy Jo Hoyt. The outgoing officers are Vice President Erin Brown and Treasurer Shannon Holland.
“I would like to thank everyone for a great season,” said Nietzel before she and the other officers handed out the awards.
Trophies were presented to the teams which finished first, second and third in the “A” and “B” Divisions during the SCWSL regular season.
