regular playing field, but their bases are
covered as far as community activity is
This Sunday, June 13, there will be
seven games played to help make up the
games that were rained out a couple of
weeks ago. Some really interesting games
are shaping up.
Even though the Renegades continue to
romp and stomp on all comers, both the
Hell Raisers and Armadillo Graphics are
only one game out each. And the second
game ofthe afternoon on Sunday will be
between the Renegades and the Hell
Later, the Hell Raisers will face the for-
madible Ducks, who are only lVSi games
out of first. And the Renegades go on to
meet the cellar occupants, Special Blend.
The Women's Softball is continuing its

—but not exclusively—men) and the Houston Fire Department softball players.
The women's All-Stars wil! bechosen by
each team picking two or three players
each. The players and coaches will decide.
■ Tennis challenges ease
After the massive action last week on
the MSA Tennis Ladder, this week seemed
like a vacation. Explained David Robicheaux, "There were so many last week.
And you can't challenge for a week to give
people who have moved up a chance to
Only two players were upwardly mobile
this past week. Michael Green had challenged Rick DuPont, but Rick resigned
from tennis for a while, so the match was
considered to be a default and Michael
took over the number 8 rung on the ladder.
Then he challenged number 6 David
Robicheaux and lost 6-0, 7-6, with a 5-3
The only other challenge was Don "Ringer" Smith, who challenged Michael
Houston and swatted his wav to victory
This coming week should see some challenges, though, since the cut-off date for
challenging is June 19 in order to qualify
to play in the Texas Challenge Cup. The
top seven singles players at that time will
be the ones who represent the MSA Tennis
I_eague in the tourney.
Expect Fred Lopez to be challenged by
Rich Ryan, and watch out for a dark horse
to stir things up.
As for the doubles, there will be round-
robin play on the 13th to determine who
will play in the tourney. As of June 9 there
were six doubles teams expecting to compete: Fred Lopez/Bobby Hopkins, David
Robicheaux/Larry Elliot, Michael
Houston/Michael Green, J.C. Barrera-
Jon Colbert, David Garza/Don "Ringer"
Smith, and Rich Ryan/John Ryan.
Besides the ladder activity, the regular
Sunday play is doing great, with 27 active
members participating and many others
showing up part-time.
Last Sunday saw a female player at the
courts. David Robicheaux said that they
are really looking forward to her coming
back and they hope that more women will
start coming out to play. Said David. "It's
gonna take that first one or two to come
out and then talk it up."
