Anna, Karina, Catie and Chelsea also go deep
The bats were hot, even if the weather was not. After dropping two tight games in Pool Play, the Sizzlers 18U came awake on Sunday, what a great "how do you do?!" into March.
Game 1 - Win 7-5 vs New Lenox Power is where Catie, Karina and Lauren hit dingers and Chelsea pitches us through
Game 2 - Win 15-8 vs Mundelein Stampede - Anna and Lauren (twice) with Home Runs. Maya on base all game, basically all day and all weekend. Kelsey pitches this one and guts out the win
Game 3 - Win 9 - 0 vs Central Illinois Diamonds. Kayla doubles with bases loaded to score three, but the STAR of the game is CHELSEA - Wait till you read this....She hits a GRAND SLAM, oh yeah, and by the way her day job? pitching! Throws a NO HITTER
Nice work Champs!
Team breezes through pool play
The 14U Black Sizzlers went to Pekin, on short notice, and earned a winning record of 2-1 for the weekend.
The weekend got off to a great start with a 6-1 victory over Sterling Extreme with Heather C. pitching a strong game.
Game 2 was a convincing 9-4 victory over the Quad City Firebirds GSA.
In bracket play, the Sizzlers came up just short in a 6-5 loss to the Quad City Firebirds USA Team
NSA "A" tournament
The 16U played well all weekend and finished with a winning record. The highlights were Maddie and Dani going deep and Carly's stellar pitching.
We finished in 3rd place, falling to the eventual champions, in the semi-finals, by one lousy run.... :-(
Anyway, off to High School (for most) and then this gang of goofs gets back together for the summer run.
Pull an all nighter
Happy New Year

The 16U Sizzlers split 4 games in St. Louis College Exposure over the Halloween weekend. There were a number of College Coaches there and our players showed themselves well. Rain cost the Sizzlers their first game, but this was worth the trip.

The Sizzlers started slow and lost to a team they had defeated just two weeks ago. Fortunately, the Sizzlers went out and won their next game. Ultimately, in bracket play, they lost a heartbreaker 8-7 to finish their play in Algonquin. They are ready for their next assignment
Round Robin Sweep on Saturday 9-21-13
The 12U Sizzlers kept their focus for all three games and went undefeated in the Downers Grove Round Robin Tournament. They used their bats to hit and bunt their way to 40+ runs in three games. They had strong pitching and defense to back up the bats. What a way to start, win 2 by Mercy rule and a big win in the finale to round out the night.
ON BASE a ton in Dowers Grove
The 16U Lemont Sizzlers put on a hitting expedition on September 14th and 15th at the Premier Girls Fastpitch Tournament in Downer Grove. Heavy rain shortened the weekend, but the Sizzlers bats thundered before and during the downpour to gut out an 8-4 win in their final game.
