The Tampa Tribe teams that call Wesley Chapel District Park home claimed top honors for the first time since 2006 at the ever-growing Derek Pieper Memorial Tournament.

The Elite and the Rising Stars teams came away Sunday with victories in the B Divisions as they aimed to hit their peak in time for the upcoming Dick's Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions in January.

"The guys have really come together," Rising Stars coach Tom FitzSimons said. "We try to peak around the time we come into this tournament. This is a big stepping toward the (Tournament of Champions) in January.

"Winning here just reaffirms everything we've been getting the guys to buy into, working together and playing as a team."

As hosts of the Tournament of Champions, Tribe teams do not need to use the Derek Pieper Memorial Tournament as a qualifying opportunity for the TOC. Therefore, they do not compete in the A Division where the prize for victory is qualification.

KAYAKING: Paddling Pasco Trip #9 is planned in conjunction with the New Port Richey Christmas boat parade on the Cotee River. The parade will take place Dec. 1. Paddlers will park and launch from Sims Park by 4 p.m. and make their way downriver about two miles to Nick's Park boat ramp on Miller Bayou. There, they will stage and prepare for a paddle in the parade back to Sims Park at 5:30 p.m. with lights on.
