Fike lost the 10PM game last night against the Senators (5-6) to finish pool play 2-2 which took us out of the quarter finals. Fike wins big over St Peters 11-2 in their crossover game today to finish with 3 wins and 2 losses in the tournament. The Sr Fike Photo Album has many new pics from the tournament games, and more from today will be uploaded soon.
We have 3 double header league game nights this next week on Tues (home), Thurs (Sedalia), and Sat (Oak Park High School) all at 6PM. Let’s get some momentum going into Zone…Let’s GO FIKE!
Sr Fike wins the first two games Thursday night 9-0 vs Blue Jays and 9-2 vs Post 338. Post 21 takes the win over Fike in the first game today. Sr Fike (2-1) takes on the Senators tonight at 10:00PM for their final pool game. Schedule will be updated for Saturday once pool play is over.

Lastly, please check your emails for the sign-up instructions for the Sr Wood Bat Tournament ASAP! There are several open spots that need filled, and the tournament is right around the corner. Each current FIKE family is expected to volunteer for a minimum of 6 hours and of course are welcome to volunteer as much time beyond that as possible. This tournament helps keep the cost for each player to a reasonable amount, so be sure to support your team! If you did not receive a sign up email please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
