14U went 7-0 in the 18th Annual Fox Valley Firecracker Tournament!!!

Andrea Richards recorded four wins and Lizzie Michalski recorded three of the wins in the circle.  Claire Busch hit a homerun, Lizzie Michalski, Claire Busch, Emily Hansen, Andrea Richards and Katie Szulczyk all recorded triples.  Julia Palmer led the team in RBIs for the weekend at 10.  Emily Hansen and Katie Szulczyk both recorded 7 RBIs.  The team had a strong showing at the plate, getting on base 206 times during the weekend bringing in a total of 58 runs.  Our defense was also on, allowing just over an average of 4 runs per game.  Lizzie Michalski probably had the most memorable defensive play with a caught line drive in the circle and a throw to first for the double play.  Amy Foulis received the team voted MVP for her countless defensive plays at third base.


The entire team contributed to the victories both on the field and in the dugout: Claire Busch, Sam Connelly, Cat Cronk, Bri Falk, Amy Foulis, Emily Hansen, Lizzie Michalski, Julia Palmer, Andrea Richards, Katie Szulczyk and Caitlyn Webb.

11U Sweep SWS Tournament!!!

Entering the 2014 SWS 11U Tournament, the Naperville Diamonds had their work cut out for them. As the 5th seed out of 6 teams, the Diamonds knew it would take hard work and a contribution from every player to accomplish their goal of winning the conference tournament. 

Opening against the 4th seed Morris Lady Warriors, the Diamonds put together a complete team effort winning 10-1. The next night, the Diamonds took on the Plainfield Edge Chaos, the top seed in the tournament, winning 7-0. With the championship game in sight, the Diamonds then defeated the 3rd seed Oswego Outlaws, winning 4-2, in a hard fought contest that saw the tying run left on second base to end the game. On championship game night, the Diamonds fell behind 8-1 but roared back to down the second-seeded Plainfield Twisters Lime Green, 11-10, in a game which saw the tying run left on third base to end the game. Congratulations 11U Diamonds – shine bright girls!

 2013 Naperville Diamonds Graduates Attend College Exposure Practice during Winter Break

 
 

Amy Cecil - University of Illinois Springfield
Lexi Ellstrom - University of Pikeville
Lauren Cairo - Rockhurst University
Brittany Warnecke - Texas Tech University
Brooke Meyer - Penn State University

 

2013 graduates Amy, Lexi, Lauren, Brittany and Brooke visited Matrix practice over the winter holiday to share their experiences living college softball (or hockey, in Brooke’s case) and attending their perspective schools.  

They not only practiced with the Matrix, but led open discussions on what to expect when you attend college and play collegiate softball.  They covered all topics including their daily routine with softball, how many hours a day involve softball and how many involve studying, how they each juggle their stringent athletic life with managing classes.  They even were nice enough to openly discuss their social life, or complete lack of a social life!!!  

They all are thriving in softball and as freshman already making great contributions to their teams at a young age.  The entire coaching staff and their teammates are very proud to have coached and played with such great student-athletes. 

More importantly, these young ladies serve as excellent role models for our younger Diamonds players.  Both Lauren Cairo and Brooke Meyer will be full-time assistant coaches the summer of 2014.  Lauren will be coaching with the 14U “A” Naperville Diamonds Cramer Hawks and Brooke will be coaching with the 18U College Exposure Matrix.
