Around the Softball Diamond

Our softballers have had a great start to the 1st half of the season. I hope everyone has had a great holiday break and are eager to get back out on the diamond. Unfortunately Rnd 11 was washed out but fingers crossed the weather Gods are kind to us as we turn the corner into the home straight towards the finals with 4 more competition rounds left.

Below are the current standings.
U11 Mixed T Ball - 2nd place on 22 points
U13 Girls Div 1 - 1st place on 28 points
U13 Girls Div 2 - Equal 1st on 26 points
Jnr Boys - 4th place on 12 points
School Girls Div 2 - 2nd place on 25 points
B Grade Ladies - 2nd place on 25 points****
Mixed Div 2 - Equal 3rd plce on 23 points****
Mixed Div 3 - 1st place on 25 points

***** Well done to our B Grade ladies and Mixed div 2, both these teams were promoted to these grades in Rnd 7 and are competing well.


Softball Representative Trial Dates

Following is the trial dates for the U13 girls and boys and U15 Girls. I would strongly encourage any player who is keen to trial to attend. These sessions are very beneficial and even if you are unsuccessful in making the squad you will gain alot more skills and experience from the trial sessions. Nothing ventured nothing gained

U13 Girls and Boys - 15th February 2012 - 6.30pm Stanhope Gardens Softball Field
U15 Girls - 22nd February 2012 - 6.30pm Stanhope Gardens Softball Field

See you all around the diamond!
