This weekend, the Ruby Rutnik Memorial Softball Tournament will be played in Cruz Bay at the ball field near the school.
This is the 16th annual tournament, Janet Cook and Andy Rutnik have organized to raise scholarship funds in memory of their daughter who died in an auto accident in 1996. This year the Rutniks have a double challenge; their son Amos was killed in an accident on St. John last year, too.
The first pitch gets thrown at 9 a.m. Saturday, with contests including high schools from St. Croix, St. Thomas, Tortola and St. John.
"All the things we do this year are a little more speciual becuase he was abig part of the tournament," Andy told the St. John Source. (Read the story here.)
