After all of the rain on Friday, the Virginia Crushers 18U had to wait an additional 24 hours to kickoff the summer season at the Softball Nation Rock N Fire tournament in Richmond. The wait was definitely worth it! These ladies were able to defeat every opponent in their pool and advance to the Championship game. After a slow first inning, their bats came alive as they amassed four runs to their opponent’s one. Congrats on a great weekend ladies! Way to bring home the Gold!

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 – Mallie hit her first homer
14U – Mikayla and McKenzie both had dingers this weekend
14U – 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 team for their first place finish in the Gold Division! Way to bring home the Gold on your coaches’ birthday!
