12U Black traveled down to Christiansburg, VA to compete in the NSA Halloween Howl to benefit and fight ALS. Proceeds of the tournament were donated to ALS research. After a competitive day, 12U Black finished pool play in 2nd place….then the rain moved in cancelling Sunday’s bracket play, resulting in a 2nd place Gold Bracket finish and the 4th straight tournament resulting in hardware for 12U Black.
The girls wore special special jerseys to honor Coach Chris’ father-in-law, JW Taylor, who lost his battle with ALS nearly 2 years ago.
2U Black traveled to the In The Net Sports Plex near Hershey, PA and took on some new competition. The girls played well and earned the #1 seed for Sunday after a team wide offensive onslaught. They faced some tough competition in the Championship and fell just short, bring home a 2nd place finish.
16U Liberty White traveled up to Glen Burnie over the 14th and 15th of September to claim their first tournament win, 3rd place overall after Sunday, and a great experience for our first outing together – way to go Liberty White! This was a combined 18C/16C tournament due to low turnout individually. Together there were 6 teams between the divisions.
14U Blue stayed local for the Capital Region Invitational at Claude Moore Park and Potomac Lakes Sportsplex.

On Sunday the team took advantage of a first round bye to win 3 back-to-back games and take the championship trophy home. They outscored opponents 53-18 over the six games.
