Defending softball champion, 911th Technical Rescue Engineer Company, and Defense Threat Reduction Agency earned their tickets to the FY19 intramural softball championship showdown, when the squads respectively eliminated 1st Capabilities Integration Group and reigning Commander’s Cup champion, Defense Logistics Agency, July 18 at Graves Field.All four squads came to the diamond with rosters full of proven talent and regular-season records that clearly established them as serious contenders. But, in the end, it comes down to driving runners across the plate while limiting an opponent’s fortunes with dedicated play out in the field. For this season, it was the 911th Engineers and DTRA that prevailed in the critical task at hand to head into what promises to be a major showdown between two stalwarts displaying nearly an equal number of trophies at their respective headquarters.

Complete coverage of the championship game will be published in next week’s Eagle.
