Player reunited with old friends
WARWICK softballer Sue Murray got home four times as her team, Charleville, won a bronze medal in the Softball Queensland Masters Tournament last weekend at Slacks Creek.
Murray was playing her first softball for 15 years and was re-united with some team-mates she played with at Charleville two decades ago.
“It was great to win bronze in a division with teams which play in regular competitions,” Murray said.
“We beat the teams which won gold and silver in round games to finish with four wins from six games.”
In the play-off for third, Charleville beat Noosa.
Murray started in centrefield, then played at left field before spending the final two days of the tournament at third base.
“I didn't hit a home run but got home four times, took two catches and was in two double plays (two opposition players dismissed).
She finished the tournament with a groin injury but vows to be back in 2011 with a bit more training under her belt.
In 2012, Murray and her friends from Charleville plan to play in the Pan Pac Masters Games at the Gold Coast.
