The Orillia National Nutrition senior softball team is aiming to repeat its 2023 performance as senior softball champs in the Simcoe-Muskoka Senior Softball League.

The senior team features players who range in age from 55 to 77 and compete against teams from Muskoka, Wasaga Beach, Midland/Penetang, Barrie Blue and Barrie Kage.  

The league begins play Tuesday, May 21 with Orillia travelling to Barrie to face their perennial rivals, Barrie Kage, whom they defeated in the 2023 playoff final.

National Nutrition will return to Tudhope Park in Orillia to face Penetang/Midland on May 28 at 9:30 a.m. 

With a few new faces this year, player/coach Wayne Martin expects the team to defend its title. 

The senior team is in its 15th year, winning 12 championships with a year off due to COVID. The Barrie Kage team won the other two league championships.

Martin said he is thankful to National Nutrition, whom he described as "an incredible sponsor."
