1st Annual Krystle Campbell Softball Tournament Raises $10,000

The first annual Krystle Campbell softball tournament raised $10,000 for the scholarship in Krystle’s memory and the girls softball team.

The money was raised through the sale of Medford Strong t-shirts, pictures with the World Series trophy, and the generous donations of local businesses and individuals.

The Lady Mustangs won their opening day game with a strong 7-2 win over Billerica High School before losing to a hard hitting Arlington Catholic squad 6-2 in the Championship game.

The consolation game was won by Swampscott High School, defeating Billerica in a slugfest by a score of 9-7.

Special thanks go to: Terri Eisnor and the Mustang softball parents, Medford Youth Softball, Bill Honeycutt, Ron Zampell, and the Boston Red Sox.
