Stars Finish 5th of 31 Teams at Nationals!!!
Our girls went into USSSA Nationals hoping to continue their hot streak, and BOY did they ever! Pool play concluded with a 2-1 record,
earning them the #2 seed in their pool. Double elimination started with Friday victories over the Delaware Crushers and NJ Outlaws. It continued
on Saturday with a close loss to the Delaware Vipers, but rebounded with victories over the PA Ball Hawks and NJ Gators. This moved the Stars on
to be one of only 6 teams left to play on Sunday's final day of play. Unfortunately, the girls' run ended there, and gave the 10Us a 5th place finish.
Fun In The Sun Champions!
This tournament began with 13 teams. But their could only be One! The Stars got hot at just the right time each game,
going 3-0 on Saturday, and securing the #2 seed going into the championship round. Finding themselves down 5-0 after three innings in the
quarterfinals, the girls dug deep and pulled out an exciting 6-5 come-from-behind victory. In the semis, the Stars scratched out one run at
a time, en route to a 4-0 victory, and a trip to the finals. In the Championship game, the girls came out swinging, and quickly went up 6-0
as they batted around in the 1st half of the first inning. After that, fairly even play led to a 9-2 Stars victory, and their first
championship of the season. A perfect lead-in to Nationals!
3rd Place at Memorial Day Madness!
18 teams made their way to New Cumberland, PA this weekend to compete for the Memorial Day Madness championship.
The 10U Stars began strong on Saturday, winning 2 games and tying 1. They followed this on Sunday by going 2-1. Their
combined 4-1-1 record was good enough for the #4 seed in the Gold bracket. Good solid softball led the girls to victory
in the Elite Eight with a 5-0 decision. Unfortunately their mojo took a break in the semi-finals, where (for the second time)
they took a loss to the runner-up, Team Long Island. Congrats, girls on such a strong finish in the biggest tournament
of the regular season!
Black-Eyed Susan Rainout
Mother's Day Madness Rainout
Perhaps we should become a swim team...
This Saturday, the 10U Stars took their annual visit to Westampton, NJ for the Nightmare tournament. Unfortunately,
after a fun Saturday, Sunday was completely washed out. Our second rainout of the season. Oh, well; at least we got to see
New Jersey, right?!
Fourteen teams descended on Caffi Field this weekend to participate in our very own Cherry Blossom tournament!
With wonderful weather, and tremendous work by all the 10U Stars parents, the tournament was a huge success. Congratulations
to the Richmond Diamonds, who defeated the VA Crushers 5-2 in the Gold championship, and the Ashburn Shooting Stars, who
defeated the Firebirds 14-13 in the Silver championship.
The Stars squeeked out a close one against the Firebirds to take the first game of the Kaboom tournament. Then
the skies opened up and washed everything else away. Oh, well, at least it lowered the pollen count.
Trevor's Treasures Runners-Up
The 10U Vienna Stars kicked off the start of their Spring season with their first trip to a championship game.
Saturday was strong, with the Stars going 2-1, and earning a #2 seed. Sunday started off well with a semi-final victory,
but the girls couldn't pull off the final victory, and settled for second place, and their first championship game appearance.
The winning entry from the Halloween Tournament softball decorating contest!
The fall season ended this weekend with the new 10U Stars taking 5th place in the annual Basaeliners Halloween Tournament. More
excitingly, the team managed to win the softball decorating contest! Gaze upon our entry, if you dare.
Introducing the new Vienna Stars 10U
Welcome to all our new girls, as they begin their softball journey here at the 10U level. It's going to be a great year, girls.
Be ready to work hard and to play hard!
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up and knows it must run faster than
the fastest lion or it will be eaten. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up
and knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn't
matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you better
-An African proverb
A great hitter isn't born, he's made. He's made out of practice, fault
correction and confidence.
Now you can sit on the bench, pick your nose, scratch your bottom, and it all
goes by, and you're the loser. The observant guy will get the edge.
