Team Sawtooth 
slams the door

Wins Twin Falls menís softball meet

Unbeaten in six games, Team Sawtooth consisting of seven Wood River Valley players won the 24-team "D" division of the Twin Falls Doorslammer menís slow-pitch softball tournament Sunday in Twin Falls.

"Itís the first time I can remember a Wood River team going down to Twin Falls and winning the Doorslammer," said Team Sawtooth player/coach Bob Sarchett, talking about the 23rd annual menís meet.

Fueled by its 15-14 victory over a Caldwell team in preliminary action, Team Sawtooth dominated nearly all its opponents during the three-day tournament sponsored by Falls Brand.

In the winner bracket final, Team Sawtooth walloped Eaton Irrigation of Twin Falls 16-8 as Ketchumís Pat McGee (.522 for the tourney) went 3-for-3 with a HR, triple and 4 RBI.

Team Sawtoothís Robin Sarchett (17-for-26, .654 tourney) batted 5-for-5 with a triple, 3 doubles and 6 RBI in the 16-5 championship game win over Moser Machine of Twin Falls.

Most Valuable Player of the "D" tournament was Team Sawtooth pitcher Scott Shumway, 54, of Boise, who also hit 20-for-24 (.833). His sons Levi, a future College of Southern Idaho infielder, and outfielder Garrod Shumway helped the Team Sawtooth cause in the Doorslammer.

Others on the 11-player squad and their batting averages were Nelson Drewien .652, Jeff Sarchett .565, Bob Sarchett .524, Randy Bahrenfuss .522 and Matt Barrow .444.

Team Sawtooth is planning to play in its fourth and final tournament of the season Sept. 7-8 in Boise. The local men have done well so faróhaving also placed second and third in Boise meets during June and July.
