Page Brake wins annual Blue Mountain Invitational Fastpitch Softball Tournament
For the fourth straight year, the Page Brake fastpitch softball team, which hails from Herriman, UT, stood alone atop the standings when the dust cleared on the annual Blue Mountain Invitational Fastpitch Softball Tournament this past weekend.
Page Brake opened a lead on First Colony Mortgage and held off a rally from their fellow Herriman opponent for a 14-7 win in the championship game late Saturday night in the conclusion of Pioneer Day celebrations in Monticello.
Page Brake went 5-0-1 on the weekend. Top Dog Printing, of Sandy, UT, handed the champions their only blemish with an 8-8 tie during pool play. The South Ogden Drillers won the dropdown championship, holding off the Vernon Spades 10-7.
The annual tournament, which is now the longest-running fastpitch softball tournament in the nation, saw 10 teams compete for the title and produced some exciting softball throughout the weekend.
Monticello Parks and Recreation Director Shayne Christensen said the tourney was part of a “great time” at the ballfields Saturday night that featured “a big turnout with strong community support and excellent food.”
