Shirrell, Smothers win YMCA Men's Leagues

Team Shirrell won a second straight championship and Team Smothers won another in YMCA Men’s Basketball League action.

Shirrell ran away with another Championship as they outlasted Waldron in the Championship game, as both team played games earlier in the day advancing through the Final 4 to the Championship game. In this low scoring affair, Team Shirrell came back from a three point deficient at half to win 50-47. Shirrell won with a balanced attack with only two players scoring in double digits as Jake Ash scored 11 and Chris Shirrell added 10. James Horine of Waldron led all scorers with 16.

Team Smothers very nearly gave away the Championship, with multiple turnovers in the final minutes, but hit key free throws down the stretch to come away with a 1-point victory of Team State Farm 79-78. Joe McKinney led Smothers and all scorers with 22 points, while Byron Balser added 19 for State Farm. This is the second championship for Smothers in the past three YMCA leagues.

For anyone who is looking to join a team or would be interested in playing, please see below or contact, Mark Lantz by calling (812) 663-9622. The next league will start in early January and will end with championship games in March. Registration for this league is going on now

As preparation gets under way for fall session’s leagues and classes, we would like to encourage any male or female, member or non-member, over the age of 18 to stop by the Y.M.C.A. and get more information on how to sign up for the Adult Basketball League or other Adult/Youth sports. We also currently have registration going on for Youth Basketball, Racquetball, Lego Classes, and “Little” Classes along with other program classes. Any companies looking to sponsor teams are also encouraged to contact the Y.M.C.A. for more information regarding the leagues.

In addition, the Decatur County Family Y.M.C.A. also hosts Wednesday night open gym basketball from 6:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. This is a great way to keep your basketball game sharp as well as finding a team for Sunday’s Adult Basketball League.
