The first Colfax High Boys-Girls Basketball Golf Tournament went into the books last Sunday at The Ridge with a good turnout of golfers that helped make the event a success.
According to Ridge assistant pro Jerry Rogers, a total of 82 golfers competed in the four-player scramble format, which was played with a shotgun start for the best ball event.
Three teams tied for the lowest score of the day with 57s. After a “card-off” to determine placing, the team of Randy Havens, Wyatt Covich, Ron Pucci and David Witt were crowned as first-place winners.
Coming in second-place were Gary Rooker, Ray Rooker, Jason Rogers and Ian Glass.
 The third-place finishers included Dylan Murty, Dave Riveres, Doug Smith and Kenny Jones.
Braves tops A’s 14-6
The Braves pieced together a big 11-run second inning and used that as their impetus in an eventual 14-6 downing of the A’s in recent Sierra Foothills Little League major division play.
The big hits in the big Braves uprising were delivered by Noah Souza with a home run, Kenny Gull with a double and David Keller with a two-run single.
Also providing important hits in the win were Rumi Shimada with a double and Ben Ferguson and Joe Painter with singles.
