Dorchester 8-And-Under Team Crowned Softball League Champs

This past weekend was yet another reminder of the young athletic talent that currently resides in Dorchester.

That's because Dorchester's 8-and-under softball team won the gold and made the village proud.

The Dorchester squad -- the youngest of the community's girls softball teams -- competed June 17-19 at the FUNFRALL League tournament held this year in DeWitt.

The longstanding FUNFRALL league is comprised of several nearby communities, including Exeter-Milligan, Friend, Wilber, Plymouth and many others.

In the first round of the tournament on Friday, the Lady Longjorns won 9-3 over BDS.  On Saturday, the girls beat Geneva by a tally of 15-3.

On Sunday, Dorchester beat Friend 6-4 in the semi-finals, and went on to beat the hometown advantaged DeWitt 6-5 in the championship. 

One Dorchester parent told the Times: "This team is a special group of kids who work hard to get better day by day.  The team's success is the result of good parents, good coaches and kids who care about their performance."

The Lady Longhorns were coached by Brent and Lindsey Zoubek, as well as Brittney Zoubek.

Our congratulations to Dorchester's 8-and-under softball team!


  1. If you could force someone of these vacant homeowners to sell their properties, youd have more kids out for athletics. Why are there at least 3 homes on mainstreet that are vacant and not being sold or rented for example?!

  2. This was a great team! Congratulations coaches and team'
