TG Missouri, DYS win Corporate Games titles

Sunday, October 2, 2005

TG Missouri of Perryville coasted to its second consecutive championship for Division I of the Corporate Games, winning in much easier fashion than last year.

The team of employees from TG Missouri Corp., a Toyota Affiliate Supplier, tallied 685 points and topped Procter & Gamble by 145 points.

The two teams tied atop last year's competition for organizations with 100 or more employees but TG Missouri had more first-place finishes to win the tiebreaker.

Southeast Missouri Hospital, a first-year team, was third with 395 points and Blue Cross/Blue Shield scored 290.

The Corporate Games is a two-week Olympic-style competition of evens -- mostly athletic with some nonsports events -- offered by the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department for employee-based organizations.

The event concluded Friday night with trivia and a mystery event at Osage Community Centre.

In Division II for organizations with 99 or fewer employees, Division of Youth Services pulled away in the final week to claim the title with 595 points to MedAssets total of 555.

DYS won the hotshot basketball competition, flag football and dodgeball and split first-place in innertube water polo this past week.

Big River Telephone, a first-year participant, was third in the division with 480 points.
