History

The Jason Pasco Miken Classic began as two separate tournaments. The Sportco Spring Premier and the Miken Challenge. The Sportco Spring Premier eventually changed names in honor of Jason Pasco.

Jason was a prominent figure in the softball community as a player on several teams, as a coach, and as an umpire. Jason’s passion for the game and his genuine character left an impression on everyone he encountered.

The CoRec portion of the tournament will be named for Leslie Leveque. Leslie Leveque was a fixture in the Las Vegas softball scene for many years. She began her softball career as a second baseman at Eldorado HS and continued the trend in slow pitch softball for many years. Leslie played on a coed team on Friday nights at Arroyo Grande with the same group of friends for nearly 10 years. She also played on the Las Vegas Metro Police Department's women's team every year for the Nevada Police Games.

Leslie was a very well respected teammate and a friend to many in the softball community. She had an infectious smile and always kept the mood light even during the closest of games.

Leslie passed away far too young in life at the age of 35 years old. If she was here today she would offer this advice, play hard and have fun today because tomorrow is not a guarantee.
