The 12U Mavericks White finished second at the Cheesequake Fun in the Sun Tournament this past weekend.
The Mavericks opened the tournament against the host Cheesequake Dolphins. The girls got off to a great start in the tournament, winning the game 11-0 on sound hitting, fielding, and pitching. The girls then played the Marlton Thunder. The lead changed hands a number of times throughout the game, with the Thunder eventually winning the game 9-5. The Mavericks next faced the Jersey Wildcats. Having to play three games in row, the Mavericks were a little worn and lost to the Wildcats to end their day on Saturday. The Mavericks finished with a 1-2 record, and received the third seed for Sunday.
The Mavericks started off Sunday with a rematch against the Marlton Thunder. This time, the Mavericks jumped out to an early lead and never relinquished it, winning 8-5. In the finals, the Mavericks faced a rematch with the Jersey Wildcats. The girls fought hard but the Wildcats were too strong and beat the Mavericks for the Tournament Championship.
Congratulations girls, you did a great job this weekend!
