As far as the year went, we felt we had a rather successful year. We had some young ladies that found out what tournament softball was all about. We were a very inexperienced team that really showed what they were made of. The coaches and parents were extremely proud of the way our girls battled all year. We participated in 3 tournaments this season. The MAYSA Triple Play Tournament where we won our first game, a first for all of us. We then lost the next two but competed nicely. We then had 4-5 scrimmages with the Winslow Orange Crush. Those were coaching scrimmages and they were very helpful. Prior to participating in the State 12B tournament, I would like to thank Emily Leighton and Alei Collier for helping our team at practice. Emily pitched and Alei caught. The girls learned a lot under the guidance of these two young ladies. We headed for the states feeling confident. Our young ladies proved that with hard work and dedication, anything was possible. With 11 teams competing, we finished 4th with a 3-2 record. It was a most inspiring weekend for all of us. We then played in the Coca-Cola classic and fought Mother Nature again. We went 0-2 but played very well.
Thanks so much from all of us on Eclipse for the understanding and consideration that MAYSA showed us during the year. It’s a great organization to be a part of.
