Swinging for the fences

Queen of Peace Boosters held the first “Swing for the Fences” 16-inch softball tournament and fundraiser on Sept. 9. The event raised more than $7,000 to support the purchase and installation of a permanent outfield fence and warning track on the Peace softball field. The tournament fielded four teams consisting of alumnae, parents and faculty members. Each team played three games, and team members and fans purchased raffle tickets, watched the Bears game and enjoyed barbeque.
