Summertime sports: slow, easy, but soon to crank up
The women of the Key Royale Club played a combination game on Aug. 5. They played a basic low-net game in each flight while also playing a two-best-balls team game.
Tootie Wagner placed first in flight one with a 4-under-par 28. One shot back in second place was Roswitha Fowler, while Joyce Reith finished in third place with a 2-under 30. Second flight produced a tie for first place between Rose Slomba and Erma McMullen, who both carded 2-under-par 30. Shirley Cessna, Sylvia Price and Linda Kelly tied for second place with 34.
The team of Penny Williams, Josie Womble and Erma McMullen won the team game with a combined 82.
Sam Samuels was hot last week, picking up a victory all by himself during the Aug. 6 horseshoe games at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Samuels defeated the team of Larry Livragio and Steve Doyle 23-14.
The Aug. 2 horseshoe action saw Samuels team up with George McKay to defeat the team of Jerry Disbrow and Larry Livragio 24-16.
Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warm ups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.

The Manatee High School Her-icanes girls soccer fundraising golf tournament is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Bradenton Country Club and signups are ongoing. The team uses the money raised by the golfers for uniforms, warm-up suits and tournament travel.
For the $100 donation, a player gets a round in a four-person scramble and a party at the club.
Also on tap are a straightest-drive contest, two closest-to-the-pin contests, a putting contest and raffles for tons of prizes. The field is limited to the first 100 golfers, so don't delay.
Her-icanes also are looking for tournament sponsors to help their cause. For $800, a business can purchase the Hat Trick package, consisting of a foursome, banquet, tee or green sign on the course and a banner that will be displayed at all Manatee Her-icane home soccer games. A Golden Goal sponsorship package includes a foursome and a tee or green sign on the course for $500, or a tee or green sign for the tournament for $125.
To sign up a foursome, list the four players and each player’s phone number and send the list with a check payable to Manatee Girls Soccer Booster. Mail it to Islander sports writer and Her-icane coach Kevin Cassidy at 2011 79th St. N.W., Bradenton FL 34209. For more information, call 941-807-1105.
