It's tough to repeat as NABF College World Series champion.

The Ohio Monarchs Gold found that out last weekend during the four-day tournament in Toledo. The 16-team LineDrive Sportz NABF World Series presented by Buckeye Cable Sports Network was held Aug. 6-10 at Ned Skeldon Stadium, Owens Community College, Bowman Park and the University of Toledo's Scott Park.

The Crystal Lake Cardinals, from Illinois, blanked the Dix Hills Dodgers (Long Island, N.Y.) 3-0 in the title game on Aug. 10 at Ned Skeldon Stadium.

Last year's NABF Series champion, the Monarchs Gold, made the semifinals last week but was eliminated by Dix Hills 11-4. The Gold had a 3-0 lead through four innings but couldn't hold on.

The Oregon-based Ohio Monarchs Blue summer collegiate baseball team finished 1-2 in pool play during the LineDrive Sportz National Amateur Baseball Federation College World Series presented by Buckeye Cable Sports Network — which was not good enough for them to advance to the quarterfinals.

 The Blue squad included local players Alex Timofeev, a first baseman from Clay; Cody Fisher, a pitcher from Gibsonburg; Cody McPherson, a pitcher from Lake; Shane Pfouts, a pitcher/outfielder from Lake; and pitcher Chris Bassitt from Genoa.

There were a lot of proud parents and happy - but exhausted - kids on Aug. 8 during the Sylvania Super Kids Triathlon at Olander Park.

The event was hosted by Team Toledo Triathlon Club.

"They did a great job and it was well organized," said Andrea Rigg of Oregon. "They got the kids pumped up. I was very impressed with the organization of it."

Rigg's daughter, Payton, 7, competed in the triathlon along with Andrea's niece, Carly Rigg, 12, and Andrea's neighbor, Jayla Mussleman, 8.

All three young girls live in Oregon.
