On a cloudless day on in November, the Swarm participated in Miracle Babies' Fourth Annual 5K Run/Walk for Hope to help raise money for families in need who have a newborn in the neonatal intensive care unit. All Swarm teams were represented. An extra tip of the cap to the 8U Swarm team who brought the most players to the event. With the fun came competition amongst Swarm players to finish the winding Mariner's Point course and grab bragging rights. Here are your medalists:
1st - Justin Jensen (10U)
2nd - Erika Anders (12U)
3rd - Malachi Chapman (11U)
Overall, it was a fun and important morning to further the Swarm's mission to instill the importance of community service in its players - Sportsmanship, Leadership, and Citizenship.
CHELSEA KING MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP TOURNAMENT
The 9U Swarm joined 60 teams and over 700 other baseball players throughout San Diego county to play baseball and raise funds for the Chelsea King Memorial Scholarship. The tournament was hosted by Triple Crown Sports. In Chelsea's memory, the Swarm worn sky blue wristbands (Chelsea's favorite color).
The perfect day for baseball was highlighted by a heart-pounding 6-5 victory over the Murrieta Redhawks. In the bottom of the last inning, after Griffin Catarius stole two bases after drawing a two-out walk, Eddy Corlett lined a two-strike single into right field to bring home the winning run!
Overall, the tournament was fun and exciting, but more importantly, it raised awareness and money for an incredible cause.
The Swarm is honored to be a part of the Chelsea King Memorial Scholarship Tournament.
