04/19 - Blue Lightning 16 | BradMarPine 2:
Blue Lightning started its season swinging the bats fast and often, scoring 5 runs in the first and third inning and 3 runs in the second and fifth inning. The girls brought the same intensity to the field starting the game with a nice out from Alyssa Minton to Chanyee White. Blue Lightning players also had heads up plays at home and third to end innings. It was a great start to the season.
04/23: Crush-22 | Hampton#1-8: The Crush start their season with a 22 - 8 victory over Hampton. The temperature was cold but the bats were hot. Britainy Geiger led the way going 4 for 4 including her first Homerun. Eight others reached base at least 3 times, Sammy Palmieri, Shayla Salamacha, Olivia Horgan, Jai Moore, Shaun Eubanks, Ally Platt, Haley Brady and Emily Bonidie. Platt made her 15u pitching debut, pitching the final 3 innings.
