Resilience.  That is what our 10U All-Star team emulated.  Self-named "The Yetis", our 10u girls walked away on Sunday with a hard fought 3rd place.  Due to COVID and the lack of a season last spring, none of our players had faced many aspects of tournament play before this weekend.  From our pitchers giving up walks, batters contending with strikeouts, base runners stealing away, and outfielders chasing down balls.  All that to try and prepare for in only 1 true practice, let alone to get the girls to know each others names (and coaches too!).  And this was already coming straight off of some hard losses during our own FH playoffs (which was AMAZING!).  Emotions ran high, as did the heat.  But we couldn't be more proud of how the girls played.  Walking away on Saturday with a record of 1-0-1, we were guaranteed a shot at the title.  However, we met our match on Sunday with our 1st loss, but again, our girls showed resilience and stepped up in the second game with a win and our 3rd place podium spot.  Congrats to all the girls!!  We truly believe another day we could have won it all.
