2nd Spearfish Roundrobin
When & where: Saturday at Arnold.
Teams in the field: In addition to the host Marlins, Bozeman, Crestview, Destin, Fernandina Beach, Milton, Niceville, Rocky Bayou Christian, Rutherford and Tate will be in competition.
Defending team champion: Niceville.
Returning individual champions: Garrett Jarvis (Niceville); Caden Kubatzke (Fernandina Beach); Romero Black (Rutherford); Cole Misciagna (Fernandina Beach); Enzo Gamba (Fernandina Beach); Jacob Turner (Tate); Asa Adams (Niceville).
Synopsis: Last year’s inaugural version of this event had Niceville and Fernandina Beach going head-to-head for the title, and I think that will be the case again on Saturday, but I’m looking for the visitors to take top honors this go-round, as Niceville had some graduation loss up top from last year’s team, while the Pirates brought most of last year’s crew back for this year.

Do you want me to edit the preview, now that the tournament has completed? I can do that if you wish.
