Castlegar’s Sunfest slo-pitch tournament saw more than 20 teams from around the West Kootenay play in four different divisions throughout the weekend.

Round robin play started Friday night and continued Saturday night under the lights. A television was even set up in the beer garden at Kinnaird Park so players wouldn’t miss out on all the hockey game action.

Playoffs started Sunday, with the Blasters finishing first in the ‘A’ Division, followed by the Cubs, Motavation and Krush.

In the ‘B’ Division, the Maulers finished first, with the Rangers in second, Outlaws in third and Honkey Donkeys in fourth.

The ‘C’ Division wrapped up with the A’s in first place, Bashers in second, Heads Up in third and Elkoholics in fourth.

The ‘D’ Division finals finished with the Misfits in first and the Brew Crew in second.

The annual tournament is a draw for many teams from around the region.
