Zach Grafe Benefit Softball Tournament

The annual Zack Grafe Benefit Softball Tournament will be held on Saturday, January 10th. The tournament will be set up in “round robin” style with timed games throughout the day and an alumni vs. current players slowpitch game that evening at 6:30PM.  All proceeds will be donated to the Zack Grafe Benefit Fund to help raise money for the Grafe family after the tragic loss of former Clements girls basketball and softball coach Zack Grafe who passed away from cancer in 2007. There will be a $5 admissions fee, t-shirts sold, and concessions so feel free to bring your families out to the Clements Softball Field (located by the teachers’ parking lot by the tennis courts) to help raise money for this amazing family! If you cannot attend the tournament and want to show your support, the softball team will be selling tickets and collecting donations after the winter break.
