Lawmen softball, soccer, among Tahoe sports this weekend
EL DORADO LAWMEN HOST 22ND ANNUAL TOURNEY
Starting with a home run contest Friday at Zephyr Cove Park, the El Dorado Lawmen kick off the 22nd annual Summer Classic Softball Tournament in South Lake Tahoe.
And out of 36 teams coming from as far away as Arizona and Southern California, the host team from El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is the team to beat.
“I’ve been playing on the team 13 years, and on average we win three to five tournaments per year, playing eight to 10 tournaments per year. We’re in the top five with regularity in every tournament we play in, ” said Deputy Jeff Leikauf. “This is kind of an outlet for us. We all like to compete.”
The championship game in the A flight is scheduled for Sunday at 4:15 p.m. at Zephyr Cove Park. Games will be played throughout the weekend at Todd Fields, Lampe Park and Zephyr Cove Park.
