Eagles '06 Dewitt were in Commerce this past weekend playing in the Batbusters Summer Heat Showdown. The Eagles played outstanding softball all weekend, going undefeated in pool play, and then winning all of their bracket games, to make it to the Championship game. Unfortunately, the ladies came up short, losing a tough rematch to Kalamazoo Growlers '06. All in all it was a great weekend of softball, as the Eagles ladies finished 6-1, en route to a 2nd place finish! Congrats Ladies! Go Eagles!
Eagles '07 Craven wrapped up a great weekend of softball, defeating Ann Arbor Gold Stripp 5-2 to win the Summer Slam Championship!
Play began on Friday with a 9-7 victory over Ann Arbor Gold Stripp. This was a high scoring affair as both teams racked up double digit hits.
Pool play continued on Saturday with a match up against MSA Saline. This game was never in doubt as the Eagles jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the 1st inning en route to a 12-0 victory. This win secured a #2 overall seed heading into bracket play.
The Eagles continued their strong play on Sunday with a 14-3 win over Fenton Fastpitch. This was powered by a 9-run second inning in which the Eagles put up 5 straight hits and set up a Grand Slam by Lilly F.
Next up would be a semifinal match up against Michigan Heat. After a slow start the Eagles bats came alive, outhitting the Heat 9-2 and winning the game 7-3... On to the Championship game
The Finals would be a rematch against Ann Arbor Gold Stripp. The Gold had a tough hill to climb as they had to defeat 3 teams in order to get to the Finals. The Gold was a very tough opponent holding a 1-0 lead until the 3rd inning when the Eagles switched to small ball. This strategy proved successful as they put up 5 runs that inning and went on to a 5-2 victory.
Eagles '07 Craven have found their stride as of late, as they are currently on a 9-game winning streak. They have played extremely well in all 3 phases of the game and have been a lot of fun to watch. We are so proud of these ladies! Great job and go Eagles!
Eagles '06 Dewitt continued their outstanding play this weekend, finishing with a 5-0-1 record and taking home the title at the USSSA Super 48 Championships!
The Eagles bats were on fire, putting up 42 runs on 50 hits while only giving up 9 runs total in 6 games. This was an outstanding total team effort all weekend long. Great job ladies... Go Eagles!
