This Week In Sports

The Pahrump Youth Softball Association consists of one 8U team; two 10U teams; two 12U teams; and two 14U teams.

This year the new board is attempting to build on the progress from last season, where, for the first time in many years, we had an all-star team in the 10, 12, and 14 divisions. Our 10U all-star team was the state runner-up in the C Division. Our 12U regular season teams competed in the B-Division. Our 14U division had a winning record versus Las Vegas. The regular season will be played throughout March and April, culminating in the Spring Fling and the all-star season tryouts. They are looking forward to a great regular season and anticipate one of the highest participation rates for the coveted all-star spots in all divisions.

Letters to the sports editor:

Vern, (in regard to Wednesday’s sports column, March 2)

I agree with you, we should be promoting off-roading to the public, especially more so we have the resources and land for it.

But first of all we should start at home first (Pahrump).

I moved here a little over two years ago. Not knowing the trails, I’ve given my name and phone numbers to many a person riding or wherever the off-road conversation is in progress. To this date, no one has ever called asking if I would share a ride with them. It seems to me they want to keep it all to themselves. I think this unfriendly attitude will keep a lot of people away.

This never happens where I come from, which is Hawaii. Whenever we ran upon a person or more we would invite them to ride with us the next time we rode. It added up to another person enjoying the trails with us. It’s another person to help should the ride go wrong.

There are quite a few RV’ers that ride and I’m sure they would like to know the trails. A little LOCAL guidance would have them coming again to Pahrump.

I’ve ridden Utah and they welcome you with open arms, including taking you to the trails.

John

Football: Pahrump Valley stops late 2-point try to clinch 1st win

If you had told Joe Clayton the day before his Pahrump Valley High School football team played SLAM Nevada that the Trojans would lose the time of possession battle by 13 minutes, not have a single drive longer than any of the Bulls’ longest three drives, yet still win, he wouldn’t have laughed at you.
