PINE GROVE — It might be hard to remember that the last .400 hitter in Major League Baseball was Ted Williams in 1941.
It’s easy to remember the last .400 hitter at the Ironton Ladies Nine Hole Golf Association because it happened last Tuesday when Joyce Lewis won 2-of-5 events during the regular weekly outing.
Lana Moore served breakfast treats during the brief 9 a.m. business meeting and then announced the day’s events.
When the competition concluded and the ladies sat down for lunch, Moore announced the day’s winners that included Lewis and her two events along with winners Pat Riggs, Pat Lambert and Margaret Donley.
Next week’s hostess will be Joyce Lewis. The brief business meeting is at 9 a.m. in the clubhouse at the Ironton Country Club.
New members are always welcomed and persons do not have to be members of the Ironton County Club to be part of the Ladies Nine Hole League and play the nine-hole course in Pine Grove.
The group’s outing each week is open to the public and the greens and fairways are in excellent condition heading into the Memorial Day weekend.
