April 2017 – Lots of practice prepares girls for a busy Summer!

With the weather all over the map in the Springtime, it’s hard to schedule and play a lot of games.  However, the Stars teams have practiced hard and that gets the girls ready for a busy Summer of softball! 

Coupled with the weather is the Middle School season of softball, which unlike High School in Colorado, is still played in the Spring.  Add in the possibility of some early league games, and you have a busy Spring.  

Check our events calendar if you’d like to watch any of our teams play.  If you have a girl interested in competitive softball, watch our website for tryout information for next year – it will likely be sometime in July this summer. 

March 2017 – STARS teams have good showing in early Spring tourneys!

The 14U – Linder and 14U – Hoeven teams both played in the IPGSA Tune-Up Tourney and competed well!  The Bode 16U team played in the Greeley USSSA tournament. 

The 14U Hoeven STARS went 4-2 during the tournament with wins against some tough teams, including Synergy, ProSwing Blue and Kryptonite.  They ended up with a 2nd place finish, falling to ProSwing Blue in the finals, who they beat previously! 

The 14U Linder STARS went 1-2 the first day, only to lose to the eventual champion, ProSwing Blue in the first round on Sunday.  All in all, it was great to get out on the dirt in early March!  

The 16U Bode STARS went 2-2 on the weekend, but advanced to the gold bracket, only to lose to the eventual champion in the semi-finals, and ending with a 3rd place finish out of 14 teams.  

February 2017 – 16U Bode has memorable trip to Orange County, CA

The 16U Bode STARS team just returned from sunny Southern California where they played in the Orange County Coastal Classic put on by Triple Crown Sports. The competition was great and thankfully the weather cooperated after the very wet week CA had prior to the tournament.

More importantly were the memories made on this trip. For some of these girls, it was their first experience “away” from their parents. For some, it was the first time to see the ocean. Other memories made were eating at In ‘N Out Burger, going to Jon’s Fish Market, playing beach volleyball, and of course swimming in the 56 degree ocean – yes, all 13 of them!
