Young softball squad seeking players


   Girls 10 or younger as of Jan. 1 2002 who are interested in playing in American Softball Association-sanctioned games or tournaments against teams from around the state are asked to contact coach Bob Aimone, at 475-7649, for more details.
   Practices for the team are taking place at Madras Elementary School's gym from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. on Mondays. Any girls who want to see who is on the team thus far are welcome to attend the practices, noted Aimone. Fees for taking part in ASA tournaments are usually covered with sponsor payment or fund-raising efforts. The goal for the under-10 team include playing in at least two weekend tournaments to determine the girls' readiness to be in a regional tournament.
   The tournaments will not interfere with the girls' participating in Little League, Aimone added.
