  • <b><i>Babe Ruth softball champions…<br></b></i>
The Moab all-star 14U softball team, which was known as the Astros and included girls ages 13 to 15, took first place in the Utah southern division Babe Ruth softball tournament held in the Salina area July 11 and 12. According to coach Carrie Valdes, two of the originally scheduled teams in the five-team tournament dropped out, leaving Moab, North Sevier and South Sevier to compete in the two-day event. “I wish there had been more teams because we were extremely competitive,” Valdes said, noting that the Astros went an undefeated 4-0 during the tournament, beating North Sevier and South Sevier once each day. Pictured above with the first-place trophy are: (back row, from left) coach Carrie Valdes, McKinsey Brewer, Desi Sanchez, Raegan Paxman, Corteney Noyes, Kahlan McElhaney, Hailey Cox, and coach Bill Sanchez.
