Softball dreams sustained in city

SOFTBALL: Sue Murray has a full set of Queensland Masters Softball Carnival medals, but hopes one day to be able to play her favoured sport in Warwick.

Murray moved to Warwick from Charleville 20 years ago and played the sport at Australiana Park when softball was a boom sport in the town in the early to mid-1990s.

With no softball in Warwick in the past 15 years, she has joined up with some of her teammates from her softball days in Charleville to play in the masters.

She has played four masters carnivals for bronze, gold, no placing and silver medals in successive carnivals.

This year, they won their five pool games before losing the grand final 10-9 to Archives.

"We don't train for our softball, we just play. It is over-35s, but we are all over 50."
