SummerFest Video Highlights

Softball batter

A little high and close with this one. Vanessa Wandrie
of the Tri Rivers Little League Junior Girls softball team
had to lean back to get out of the way of this pitch, but
later found two others that were more to her liking, ripping
a double down the left field line and later hitting a triple
over the right fielder's head. Tri Rivers beat Milan 13-2
Friday to advance to the semi-finals, which will be played
at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 26. The State Finals tournament
is being played at Cooperation Park. (Additional photos
can be seen on the Straitsland Resorter Facebook page.)

Softball team huddle

The Tri Rivers Junior Girls team gathered for some between inning advice
from Coach Dan Mallory during the State Finals tournament Friday. Tri Rivers
rolled over Constantine and Escanaba on Thursday and Milan on Friday and
will play in the semi-finals at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 26 at Cooperation Park. (Additional photos on Straitsland Resorter Facebook page.) Beach Volleyball player

Willie Webber dove in the DeVoe Beach sand to make this play in the
SummerFest Beach Volleyball Tournament Saturday.

Bicyclist in biathlon

After completing the kayaking portion of the biathlon, Walt Dark paused to refocus prior to beginning the 11-mile bike ride. (Additional photos and biathlon results in the July 24 edition of the Straitsland Resorter.)

Paddle Board Yoga

An SUP (Standup Paddle Board) Yoga class has been gaining popularity on Saturday mornings at DeVoe Beach in Indian River. The class is taught by certified Yoga instructor Jesica Bunker. People can bring their own boards or rent them when they pre-register for the class at Brasswind Landings.
