At press time, one week remained in our Winter League sessions. In the Lakes Division, the Young Home Team Realty squad, managed by Tom Erpelding, had a two-game lead over the A-1 Golf Carts and Core Photography teams. In the Sun Division, The Farmers Insurance Team, managed by Ron Carmichael and sponsored by the Frank Margiotta Agency, held a slim one-game lead over the Brenden Financial Planning and Spooner PT teams. Following the regular winter session, a three-day, double-elimination tournament was held.
