Softball Player Profile: Dennis McCarthy

Larry Wolfe The “perfect man”? Well, Debra McCarthy thinks so and, in fact, Dennis McCarthy can legitimately stake a claim to that title.

June PVLGA tournaments were lots of fun

Cheryl Reed got a hole-in-one on May 30, 2017.

Liz DeMichael, Publicity Although June was one of the hottest in Arizona history, the PVLGA golfers were hotter. Let me show you how they sizzled. 6/06. The ladies used their results on only the holes starting with O-N-E-S toward their final scores, even though they played a full round. Someone could have a great day,…
