Local 55+ ‘Wet Socks’ Softballers Take Silver Medal in World Senior Games


A group of local senior softball players – the ‘Seattle Wet Socks – recently competed in the Huntsman World Senior Games, bringing home a Silver medal!

In a two week span, over 10,000 senior athletes descended on St. George, Utah to compete in everything from archery to volleyball.

Our local team is an over-55 group comprised of players from Des Moines, Tukwila and Seattle.

“We are coming home with a medal this year!” Donna Simmons, one of the team’s organizers, said before the games.

And they did – earning a silver medal.

Congratulations to our local team of senior softball players!
