PRYMCA adult softball league season concludes

DOVER-FOXCROFT – The Piscataquis Regional YMCA celebrates the conclusion of another successful season of adult co-ed softball. This season ran from July 9 through Aug. 22.

Eight teams, made up of approximately 120 people from all over Piscataquis County, participated throughout the season. Games were held on Friday nights at the Piscataquis Valley Fairgrounds, with the final tournament being held on Aug. 21-22.

Brooks Law, PRYMCA program director, said, “Growing up, I had loved watching the softball games at the fairgrounds, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to get the league going again this summer. With all that our community has endured over the last year and a half, it was very encouraging to see the community come together week in and week out to support the teams and players.
