YMCA Adult League crowns first-time champs

Team Nap-Town battled adversity Sunday by winning three games in one day to capture its first YMCA A-League title. With only five players available on Championship Sunday, Nap-Town, the five seed, fought through the top-seeded State Farm Team and heavy favorite Shirrell in the championship game. Nap-Town had a balanced attack with four of their players scoring in double figures, leading them to a 92-84 win against Shirrell. Blake Sutton led all scorers with 38 points while Jake Ash added 24 for Shirrell.

Team Nap-Town’s team members are Tom Wenning, Blake Sutton, Dustin Wagner, Ethan Wagner, Randy Hodges, Jayson Purdy and Spencer Purdy.

After Mo-Town was defeated during the regular season by Mosier a week earlier, you could see that Captain Jeremie Keithly and his team wanted revenge. After defeating MVR Cars in the semi-final, they took on the top-seeded Team Mosier in the Championship.

Up two points at the half, Mo-Town pulled away in the second half and won a close battle 68-64.

Jeremie Keithly finished with a game high 28 points.

Mo-Town’s team members are Jeremie Keithly, Shane Smith, Cody Shannon, Stephen L, Trey Mills, Randy Davis, Breck

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 current league began June 8.
