League Round-Up: 2021 Ranked Pool Play Begins

Welcome back, kickballers! After a one-year sabbatical, Lawrence’s diamonds are once again graced by the cleats of the KVKL. As might be expected, several teams disbanded over the intermission; The Matadores became The Matadones, Chalmersiz is Chalmersizn’t, and Misfit Toys finally got picked up by Santa and taken to children across the globe who would appreciate them. The three teams to take those spots in the league are Louise’s Downtown Kickball, Hookah House, and Home Loans. Now, let’s take a brief look at each pool and how the teams fared last season:
