Today (6/9): Tourneys time; PSCL play four; Underground Derby championships; Racing
It’s another huge day of sports in the South Sound. It all starts early in the morning with the Capitol City Men’s Amateur Golf Tournament. Jon McCaslin has won the tournament three times in a row and The Olympian has a preview article featuring Tumwater High School alum Kyle Schrader. Tee off for the tournament at Capitol City Golf Club is at 7:30 AM.
Shortly after tee time, the Friends of Mia Alumni Soccer Tournament gets underway at South Sound Stadium. Soccer alumni from Black Hills, Capital, North Thurston, Olympia, River Ridge, Shelton/Yelm, Timberline and Tumwater gather to honor Mia and raise money for childhood cancer. First kick of pool play is at 8:45 AM. The semifinals start at 2:15 PM with the finals kicking off at 4:15. Everybody is invited to the post tournament party and benefit at Faith Community Center at 6:00. For the full schedule and more information, visit the Oly Sports post from yesterday. All events are free and donations will be accepted.
And the tournaments keep on rolling along with Budd Bay Rugby’s 20th annual Tatunka 7’s Tournament at The Evergreen State College. The tournament used to coincide with Evergreen’s Super Saturday but even after the elimination of Super Saturday, the tournament continues on the Saturday before graduation. The action gets underway at 10:00 AM.
If golf, soccer and rugby aren’t enough for you, the Puget Sound Collegiate League plays a baseball quadruple-header on Saturday. First up at noon, the Tumwater Brewers take on the West Olympia Linx. Then at 2:30, the Brewers play game two against the Nisqually Silvers. In the evening games, the Lacey Saints and the Olympia Athletics play two starting at 5:00 PM. All four games take place on the wonderful turf surface at the Regional Athletic Center. All PSCL games are free.
Golf, soccer, rugby, baseball. What else could you want? How about some championship roller derby action? Skateland! will be rocking when the Underground Derby League has their interleague championships. The Rolling Regulators, Fembots, Oly Outlaws and South Bay Bombers will battle it out to see who takes home the hardware. Tickets are $15 at the door, doors open at 6:00 PM and derby action gets underway at 6:30.
And finally, weather pending, petrolheads (I’ve been watching a lot of Top Gear on BBC America lately) get their fix this weekend at South Sound Speedway. Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, FSCRA and Legends start qualifying at 5:00 PM with racing getting underway at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $12 at the gates.
