CHICAGO – Despite rain delays on Thursday, Gyrlgroove, Knoxville, Tennessee’s women’s softball team at the Gay Games VII, won over two opponents and are just a few wins shy of bringing home a medal in the women’s “B” division.

The team beat teams from Chicago and North Carolina on Thursday.  They have thus far gone 5 to 1 at the Gay Games. They are scheduled to play today (Friday) at 2 p.m. on field three at Washington Park. Should they win that game, they will play at 5 p.m. on field 11.

Little to compete in shot and discus
Keith Little, who threw a javelin 43.52 meters to win the gold medal in the men’s javelin throw at the Gay Games VII in Chicago, will try for more medals on Friday.

Little will compete in the shot and the discus today. Many track and field events scheduled for Thursday were delayed due to the weather.

Patrick Cooper, a Vanderbilt University School of Law student, won the silver medal in his age category on Wednesday in the 5K run. Cooper’s time was 17:10. He placed fourth overall out of almost 300 racers.
