Sports briefs: DHS’ game at charity softball event postponed

By
From page B6 | March 28, 2014 |

The Albie Swingin’ for Life softball tournament scheduled for Saturday at St. Francis has been postponed due to the anticipated weather this weekend.

The games — which were to include a matchup between Davis High and Oak Ridge — will be re-scheduled at a later date.

The Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation was created in 2002 in the memory of Albie Ciucci Carson, St. Francis Class of ‘65, who lost her battle with breast cancer. Despite Albie’s vigilance and post treatment follow-ups, she was not referred for additional, available screening modalities that would have shown that her cancer had spread. Albie’s husband, Doug Carson, created this foundation to help save the lives of other women and men by assisting with education and testing: things he felt were missing from Albie’s treatments.

Free tennis clinic

The UCD men’s and women’s tennis programs will team up to host a free kids clinic on Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

Due to NCAA restrictions, the event is only open to kids in first through eighth grades.

The youngsters will learn all aspects of the game from Aggie players and coaches and a fun “hit for prizes” event will be held at the end of the clinic.

For more information, please contact men’s tennis assistant coach Michael Meyer at 650-766-7081 or [email protected]
