CASTOR — The Stettler Ol Sox posted a 3-1 record on the weekend to win the 60-plus division in the annual Castor Legion Senior Slo-pitch Tournament.

Stettler defeated the Lacombe Legion 14-5 on Sunday in the final game of the five-team round-robin tournament.

The Ol Sox and the Olds-based Good Timers each finished with 3-1 records, but Stettler earned the gold medal for recording a higher score overall.

The Red Deer Fog and the host Castor Legion also competed in the 60-plus category, which was actually open to players aged 55 and over.

The tournament included a five-team division for clubs with an average age of 65. Edmonton won all of its four games to take that championship.

The 65 division included Camrose, Medicine Hat, Saskatoon and the Pickups of Calgary.
