Fastpitch softball signups under way

The Napa Valley Girls Fastpitch Association is taking registration for its 2020 season at Kiwanis Park. The recreational softball league is for girls age 12 (by April 1) to 19 and is expected to run from late May to late July. Visit nvgfa.com to sign up or for more information.

In addition, the Napa Sports Officials Association is looking for people to umpire the games and “have fun making some extra money and getting some exercise, and you get to have the best seat in the house. We train people and no experience is necessary.”

Those interested in umpiring can call Cathy Sapata at 707-486-9945 or Michelle Reed 707-888-2323.

Lemieux aquatic meet scratched for March 28

The 16th annual Shannon Nicole Lemieux Memorial Aquatics Celebration, originally scheduled for this Saturday, March 28, at the Vintage High Aquatics Center, has been postponed indefinitely.

“We’re looking for a future date to hold the event,” said Bob Saunders, one of the event’s organizers.

One purpose of “The Shannon” has been to raise money for the Shannon Lemieux Memorial Scholarship Fund, which over the last 15 years has awarded $121,500 in scholarships to 243 deserving graduates from all participating schools.

“Regardless of what happens, we’ll still be awarding scholarships thanks to all the support our event has received in the past,” Saunders said.

The Shannon is a day of family fun that includes a synchronized swimming performance followed by water polo, diving, and zany coed swimming relays in which aquatics athletes from all Napa County high schools compete against each other as a break from their rigorous schedules. Most popular are the Costume, T-shirt and Floatie relays.
