Nanaimo’s Coffee League softball players are rounding into playoff form, and that means they’re rounding the basepaths like crazy. Winning teams put up gaudy run totals in action June 8.

At the McGirr Sports Fields, Communication Connection player Teresa Hauca connected for a home run, as did Baker Supply opponent Cherie Alyward, in a 17-8 win for the CCs. On an adjacent diamond, Island Net handled Wheatsheaf 19-3, with Deanna Lindstrom hitting a triple for the Netties.

On June 6 at McGirr, Ron’s Landscaping snuck past Baker Supply 12-10 with Susan Whittaker leading Ron’s team’s offence and Alyward homering for the Baker ladies. Also at McGirr, the Connections tied Island Net 10-10.

Communication Connection also put up the biggest score of the season so far with a huge 25-5 washout of the Wheaties June 1 at the Wheatsheaf field complex. Dawn Walton hit two dingers for the CCs, Sue Metz also went yard and Sarah Withers and Kim Elhorn added triples.

At McGirr that day, Ron’s Landscaping clobbered Harewood Arms 17-4.

The playoffs start Monday (June 20).
