The Southern Nevada Horseshoe Pitching Series kicked off another season over the weekend with their first tournament taking place in Chloride, Arizona.

The SNHPS is a year-long doubles league that uses a point system to determine the winners. Each team in the various tournaments have a division 1 player and a division 2 player.

Fourteen pitchers participated in the Hi-Lo doubles tournament, with seven teams in the event. The teams were sorted based on the pitchers’ ringer percentages.

The tournament was round-robin style, with each team playing against each other once throughout the event.

The team of division 1 player Lawrence Workman of Henderson and division 2 player Cole Hammond, also from Henderson, took first place in the tournament.

They finished the event with a perfect 6-0 record.

Workman and Hammond each received 25% of the prize money pool, along with their 20 points and a tournament champion patch.

In second place was the team of division 1 player Jim Magda of Henderson and division 2 player Aaron Reichow of Kingman, Arizona.

Magda and Reichow finished the day with a 5-2 record. They each received 15% of the prize pool, a plaque and their 10 points toward the season standings.

The third and final prize-winning team was made up of division 1 pitcher Jamie Frost of Kingman and division 2 pitcher Josh Russell of Las Vegas.

Frost and Russell ended their tournament with a 4-3 record. They were each awarded 10% of the prize pool, along with a third-place plaque and five points.
