Most of our teams finished up the Fall Season this past weekend at the USSSA Crown Trophy NIT tournament. The weather was perfect for softball and exceptional for November. We have played this tournament in snow, rain and freezing temps with 25mph winds in the past.

First, some individual congratulations:

16U – Turner Mallie hit her first homer
14U – Wolf Mikayla and McKenzie both had dingers this weekend
14U – Wolf Brianna pitched a perfect game

We would like to congratulate our 16U – Miller team for their runner-up finish in the Silver Division. It was a hard fought battle and a hard loss but the teams bonded before, during and after the game by giving well wishes to the Comets player who was badly injured in pool play on Saturday. We hope to see her back on the field soon!

Lastly, we congratulate our 14U – Wolf team for their first place finish in the Gold Division! Way to bring home the Gold on your coaches’ birthday!

Thanks to everyone who made the tournament a success. Although we still have to reconcile all of our receipts and invoices, we are confident in saying that we will be able to donate over $6000 to military charities again this year. Congratulations to the following teams:

16O Champion – Loudoun Liberty Blue
16O Runner Up – Loudoun Inferno Elite Sullivan

14O Champion – Virginia Stars Colangelo
14O Runner Up – LLG Kim

14B (Gold Division) Champion – Leesburg Revolution 07
14B (Gold Division) Runner Up – Leesburg Revolution 14U – Red

14B (Silver Division) Champion – Arlington Sage 14U (Keefe)
