Kent Grant and Rick Launius, class of 1965 Nevada Union graduates and lettermen, competed in the Western Regional Senior Softball Tournament Aug. 6 in Lincoln.

Grant and Launius play on a Central Valley AA softball team called, “Damaged Goods,” who went on to win the Western Regional Championship defeating the California Buds in two straight games.

Next up for Damaged Goods is a trip south to a Las Vegas Tournament in late September. There they will play the Eastern Regional Champions, “Chicago Hit Men.”

In February, Damaged Goods will head to the east coast and play in the Senior Softball Tournament of Champions in Lakewood, Florida for a National championship.
