In Bloomington, 160 softball teams competed across three divisions in a massive fundraiser tournament. Teams came from the Midwest, and as far as California and Florida. Locals from Montevideo, Granite Falls, Cottonwood, Wood Lake, Clarkfield, Madison, Dawson, and Ivanhoe banded together for their third crack at thr tournament. Last year they took 4th place, and the year before they took 5th. Their division this year had 40 teams, but MN Monsta was ready. They blew through the competition, winning 6-0. They won the championship game definitivly, racking up 25 runs to the opposing team’s eight. Team pitcher Mark Bukowski was voted tournament MVP. The earnings from the fundraiser will go to Bloomington Area youth groups.
