Provo City Champions!

This past Tuesday was the city championship for my team. It was a double-elimination tournament, and my team hadn't lost yet in the tournament. The other team, the Reds, was the team we had beaten the previous game. They had won their next game to get back to the championship. Both pitchers did very well, except their pitcher had one really bad inning, in which we strung together lots of hits and a few walks, and scored 6 runs. We ended up winning a tough-fought game, 7-5, to win the city championship. I am so proud of my team! They have worked very hard in practice this season and everyone has improved a lot.

Next week we have the state tournament. Luckily, since we were the #1 seed in our league, we get to play in Provo instead of traveling somewhere else. The tournament is a pool-bracket style, similar to the World Cup, so we will play at least three games, and then hopefully more if we are fortunate enough to advance. Wish us luck!!
