Lady Kings take third at state

Posted: Tuesday, July 18, 2006

The Lady Kings competitive softball team, a 14-and-under girls team, finished third at the Alaska 2006 Amateur Softball Association State Tournament on Sunday in Fairbanks.

The Lady Kings finished third after an 8-4 loss to the Arctic Heat of Anchorage.

Kinsey Martin pitched the first inning for the Lady Kings and gave up three runs. Mollie Cox pitched the final five innings and gave up five runs on five hits with two strikeouts.

“In the first two innings, we gave up six runs before we woke up on defense,” Lady Kings coach Jay Griffel said.

The offensive highlight for the Lady Kings was a two-run double by Annie Mese. Savannah Griffel got the game’s MVP for the Lady Kings for her work at shortstop.

“It was a good experience for the girls,” Jay Griffel said. “They learned a lot. Next year we’ll come back and hopefully move up in the standings.”

Nifong’s May 31 subpoenas for the records were flawed.

The subpoenas also sought a list of the uncharged players’ home addresses, which Nifong said he needed to ensure he could call the players to testify at trial. A trial is unlikely to be held before next spring.

“We’re not trying to investigate them,” Nifong said. “We are not trying to say there are crimes that we want to prove they are guilty of. We want to be put in a position to call them to tell the jury in Durham what they observed go on that night when this took place.”

Bill Thomas, one of five attorneys representing the uncharged players, argued that Nifong had not proven a need for the information that would override privacy concerns.

Judge Kenneth C. Titus said he would probably decide the issue on Friday.

The three players charged with raping a stripper at an off-campus party in March — Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans — did not attend the hearing.
