The 12U NYO All-Stars captured the USSSA All-Star State Championship late Sunday afternoon with an 11-0 win over the Murphey Candler Cobras, capping a remarkable weekend during which NYO won all six of its games by a cumulative score of 70-10.

In the final, Susie Pieper pitched a no-hitter, backed by airtight defense from Anna Galvin and Elle Shores. NYO jumped to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning on nifty baserunning by Alex Bradham and KJ Pressly, and a run-scoring single from Hollis Gottlieb. The All-Stars added three more in the second and four in the third, with key hits from Hadley Griggs and Katie Atwater. That was more than enough offensive support for Pieper, who retired the first eight hitters in the game, and finished with six strikeouts and one walk.

The 10U Chaos won their second tournament title of the travel season Saturday June 21st at the GSA Summer Slam in Cartersville competing against travel teams from across North Georgia.  The team won all four tournament games by a wide margin due to timely hitting and dominant pitching by Sydney Silverstein who allowed merely one hit across four tournament games, including a no-hit, near perfect game (one walk) in the final.  Congrats to the Chaos for another excellent performance!

The NYO Braves continued their winning ways this past weekend by placing third in the CAM Sports June Class C/All-Star Championship in Milledgeville, Georgia.  Playing against both seasoned travel teams and All-Star teams based in middle Georgia, the Braves played their hearts out in an all-day double elimination tournament.  Led by pitchers Louise Richens and Audrey Mitchem and stellar defense by the entire team, the Braves toughed out a long hot day on the diamond and walked away with their third team trophy in three tournaments.  They round out their season this coming weekend at the West Cobb Invitational.

The 2014 Andee's Army Invitational Tournament was held on June 13-14 at NYO.  Blessed with great weather, excellent softball and spirited crowds, the tournament wrapped up Saturday evening with championship games in the 15U, 12U and 8U age groups (featuring six teams from six different parks).  In the 15U finals, the Cherokee Thunder jumped to an early lead and prevailed over the Murphey Candler Cobras 9-4 (see picture to the left of both teams with Andee Poulos after the championship game).  In the 12U bracket, the Sandy Plains Ice played excellent defense and held off a late rally from the NYO All-Stars, taking the title in a 5-4 thriller.  In the 8U finals, it was all Alpharetta Attack, as the Attack blew open a tight game with the Sandy Springs Storm to prevail 15-6.  Congratulations to each of these winners!  

NYO and Andee's Army thank all of the participants in this year's tournament for their support.  The proceeds from the tournament go to benefit Andee's Army--the foundation created to honor Andee Poulos, an NYO player who suffered a severe brain injury three years ago.  Andee presented trophies to the champions in all age groups and was present at the park to welcome and thank the teams in person.  It was a wonderful weekend at NYO in support of a great cause.  We look forward to seeing all of these visiting teams and families back next year!

Beginning on Friday, June 13, 2014, NYO Fastpitch Softball will host the Andee's Army Invitational Fastpitch Softball Tournament at NYO.  The tournament will include 8U, 12U and 15U rec league all-star teams.  We have a great field lined up this year!  The brackets for each age group are attached and can be reviewd by clicking on the title of this article, then clicking on the attachment. 

The proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit Andee's Army, a non-profit foundation created in honor of one of NYO's own softball players, Andee Poulos.  Three years ago, as she was preparing to begin her 14-year old season at NYO, Andee sufferered a series brain injury that nearly took her life.  After emergency surgery and almost a month in a coma, Andee began the long road back to recovery.  She showed very little progress physically or mentally for over a year and a half.  Andee's memory suddenly began to return and her progress since then has been remarkable.  Today, Andee is able to walk short distances and communicate easily with others.  Her recovery is nothing short of a miracle.  Andee will be present for the tournament, in support of the teams that participate and in support of her charity, which provides grants to families whose children suffer injuries like Andee's.  For more information on Andee's Army, please visit www.andeesarmy.com

Come out and support Andee this weekend at NYO!
