A fast pitch softball tournament will take place this May 16th through the 18th at Riverside park to commemorate the life of Celine Wyatt.
Celine was a passionate eleven year old athlete who passed away tragically last September. The Celine 'Bulldawg' Wyatt Memorial Tournament will raise funds for a scholarship memorial in her honor.
"We want to make it big," said Becky Wyatt, Celine's Mother. "We want to emphasize the qualities that she possessed when she played. We want to make it for any girl in the state of Ohio can apply"
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will go toward the Celine Wyatt Memorial Scholarship Fund. The annual scholarship will be awarded to one senior college bound female softball player as well as a Tri-Valley female college bound student. Athletes should exemplify the hard work ethic and passion that Celine displayed.
"She loved to teach, so education was very important to her," said Tim Wyatt, Celine's Father. "She did very well in school. Softball was her love. We went year round. We practiced we played even when she was playing basketball. She still continually practiced her softball. She had a fierce heart and she was a fierce competitor."
