2016 Liberty Gold Travel week 6
"C" C.C.A.S.A. Association Championships!!
With the conclusion of the 2016 travel league upon them 10U and 12U Liberty Gold teams traveled to Hanford to conclude what has been an exciting travel season. It was a round up of just about every team the girls have played this Summer with 30 teams taking aim at the Central Valley "C" Championships.
Let's recap the great final weekend.
Liberty Gold 10U:
Providing some of the strongest performances of the Summer the 10U girls, coached by Danny Cervantes and his coaching staff, finished strong again. Saturday morning they faced the Sanger Stars with a 15-4 final. With back to back games they had enough time to cool off for a minute before the next game versus the GVGSA Storm with a final score of 0-8. After a long, hot day just about everyone stopped by Hanford's famous Superior Dairy to cool down with a sweet treat.
Sunday again brought hot weather and even hotter bats! The girls started the day with a great 10-3 win over the Fowler Fuzion. With a break in between games the girls prepared for the familiar Mariposa Softball, who have become a great rival throughout the Summer. The 10U brought it and cruised to a strong 9-3 victory.
Due to the bracket setup the "C" valley championship would be decided on runs scored on Sunday. This set up the final game of the 2016 season with a team the girls had not faced all season, North Fork's Moutain Mayheim. Despite the exciting but long weekend and intense heat the Gold 10U ladies dug deep and held off a furious rally to end the season with a big win and 2nd place!
Congratulations to the Liberty Gold 10U girls and coaches on their 2nd place Central Valley Championship finish and thanks for a great 2016 season!!
Liberty Gold 12U:
The 12U Gold had to wait a bit to get their weekend started but they definitely started off hot! Beginning with a huge 11-6 victory over the Tulare Thrill Blue. They followed it up with a thrilling victory against the Goleta Storm, 6-5!
The final Sunday of the Summer started with another exciting game. A 9-7 win over the Paso Robles Bearcats! After a short wait the next and final game of the travel season was against the 5CGS Eagles. The young ladies fought hard but hanged tough to finish 6-7.
Thank you to the Liberty Gold 12U girls and coaches for a great 2016 season!!
