If history is any indicator, the annual Black and Gold Softball Tournament, at Cedar Grove on April 27, will feature some exciting games, great food and a lot of fun

Cedar Grove has done a tremendous job in hosting the annual Black and Gold Softball Tournament, and this year’s tourney, set for Saturday, April 27, should provide more of the same.

A strong group of teams will be on hand, with games starting at 9 a.m. The schedule appears below.

Generally, the final game of the day is usually a highlighter. Last year, Immaculate Heart Academy and Cedar Grove played an epic game, with IHA winning in extra innings, 2-0.

In last year’s highlight game at the Black and Gold Tournament, Cedar Grove’s Mia Faieta (right) and Ryleigh White of IHA put on a tremendous pitcher’s duel, with IHA prevailing in 10 innings. White and Faieta are teammates in club softball during the summer and fall. (Click on photo for larger image)
