     Once again, the Sudan Daredevils put on quite a show.

    You may notice the name “Sudan Daredevils” and ask yourself, “Are those the men that ride the go-carts over the Tahoe and ramp in the Christmas parade?”

    As usual, the South Brunswick Islands Shrine Club and the Daredevils subgroup ran a fantastic event.

    Cleveland’s Julia Wiggs struck out six batters in a complete-game effort and smacked a two-run home run in the top of the first inning for the Rams, who advanced to the regional finals.
