Volleyball season wraps
The Manatee High School Freshman and JV volleyball team recently celebrated the end of the season with a banquet at the school, where coach Jessica Hinkle thanked the parents and players for a successful season. Freshman team player Sarah Howard, and J.V. players Jenna Duvall, Mackenzie Kosfeld, Kendall Anderson and Alexa Carr all received praise for their efforts. Pictured are Island players Sarah Howard, left, Mackenzie Kosfeld, Jenna Duvall, Kendall Anderson and Alexa Carr with their certificates of achievement.

The men of the Key Royale Club played an 18-hole, low-net-of-partners tourney on Nov. 28 at the Key Royale Club golf course. The team of Lew Winegarden and Jim Thorton earned bragging rights for the day with a 3-over-par 131 to edge a pair of teams that were one shot back. John Atkinson and partner Dick Grimme matched the 4-over par 132 carded by Bob Sayles and Larry Fowler to tie for second place. Third place went to the team of Merritt Fineout and Gerry Taylor at 134, while the team of Bob Kelly and Chris Collins were one shot back in fourth place.

The Key Royale men were at it again with a 9-hole, low-net-of-partners tournament on Nov. 26. First place went to the team of Chris Collins and Dick Grimme, who combined to fire an impressive 7-under-par 57, which was three strokes better than the second-place team of Tom Warda and Dave Krueger. There was a three-way tie for third place beteen Bob Kral and Vince Mercadante, Ed Havlik and Larry Fowler and the team of Jim Finn and Chuck Boes, who all matched par 64 on the day. Bob Landgren and Tom Lewis were at 1-over-par 65 to finish fourth.

The ladies teamed up with the men on Nov. 23 in a two-best-balls-of-foursome tournament. The team of Teddy Morgan, Al Gunn and Rose Slomba fired a 9-under-par 55 to edge the team of Jane Winegarden, Jim Finn, Jerry Brown and Earl Huntzinger by one shot. Al Morgan and Terry Westby both had chip-ins on the day.

 

Horseshoe news

Four teams emerged with 2-1 pool play records during the Nov. 28 horseshoe proceedings at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. The first semifinal saw Ron Pepka and John Johnson defeat the team of Debbie Rhodes and Bill Bartlett 21-15 to advance to the finals. There they met the team of Steve Doyle and Art Kingstad, who had defeated Ron Slagh and Paul Sheatler by a 21-16 score. The finals saw Pepka and Johnson roll to the top with a 21-11 win over Doyle-Kingstad.

The Nov. 24 horseshoe games saw 12 teams square off, but only the team of Ron Pepka and Ron Slagh managed undefeated pool play and the pair were the day's outright champions. Sam Samuels and Hank Huyghe outlasted four other teams to earn runners-up honors.

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.
