The Colby Community College Lady Trojan softball team will host the 14th Annual Duck Soup Tournament August 27-28 at the City of Colby softball fields. Games begin on Saturday, Aug. 27, at 6 p.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28.

The Duck Soup Tournament is a fun event with special rules for each inning, such as running the bases backwards, players hitting with their non-dominant hand, and playing with a 16-inch softball. Each team includes a minimum of five men and five women. Games consist of six innings with the visiting team awarded one-half point to avoid extra-inning games.

“If someone wants to play and isn’t on a team, we will help to form a team with other players,” said head coach Steve Kinnett.

The entry fee is $100 per team, or $10 for individuals. All proceeds benefit Lady Trojan Softball.

“The funds assist with travel expenses, field maintenance, and practice equipment,” said Kinnett. “Support is appreciated for the program and the student-athletes who become better members of the community.”

To register, contact Kinnett by Aug. 20 at 460-5507 or (785) 513-1700.
