The NYO Fastpitch 12U Flames completed an outstanding summer of softball, highlighted by a Silver Bracket championship in the Sandy Plains Slam.  The Flames team represented the first time NYO 12U had ever fielded three summer All-Star teams from the same age group.  After starting the season 1-9, the 12U Flames finished 11-4 over their last two weekends.  At the Sandy Plains Slam on June 18-19, the Flames suffered an early loss in the Silver Bracket double elimination tournament, forcing them to play 5 elimination games on Sunday.  This resilient team ran the table, going 5-0 to win the Silver Bracket title.  For their final weekend, the Flames entered the loaded ASA State Rec All-Star Tournament, featuring 13 All-Star teams.  The Flames fought to a 4th-place finish, beating several of the teams that they lost to earlier in the summer.  Congratulations to the players and coaches for their awesome play this summer!  The 12U Flames players are:  Callie Duelmar, Cate Stevens, Ella Partlowe, Emma Bernath, Emma Lepik, Evann Segal, Lea Bourne, Liza Mobley, Madison Johnson, Meghan O'Shaughnessy, Reagan Southerland, and Reilly Morgan.  The Flames were led by Manager Andrew Segal and Coach Chris Southerland.

The 2016 NYO Fastpitch 8U Thunder exemplified what is best about youth sports today.  Behind the positive tutelage of coaches Brad Alford, John Herman, Luke Barton and Eric Salo, the girls learned plenty about the game, and also formed long-lasting friendships with their teammates and families.  Over the course of the summer, the 8U team won more games (two) than any other NYO 8U second team.  What they experienced over their six weeks together was more than the wins and losses, however.  The girls developed an appreciation for each other and saw how rewarding it is to work hard for your team, while learning to love the game of softball.  The 8U Thunder players were:  Rylie "Money" Albert, Addie Alford, Mia Alvarez, Kate "Smiley" Barton, Hannah Herman, Hannah Mabry, Kiley McKenna, Gabbie Ritger, Christina Salo, Mallory "Pop Up Queen" Tingle, Morgan Todaro, and Katie "Dirt Girl" Weathersby.  For the best insight on this special group of girls, read this unsolicited post from one of the Thunder parents:  http://www.thesportshistorian.com/the-thunder-stole-my-heart/  Congratulation to the players, coaches and parents for making this summer one to remember!

The NYO Fastpitch 12U Elite team prevailed against a talented field in the GSA Memorial Day Classic.  The tournament victory was clinched by Sydney Silverstein who pitched a no-hitter and near perfect game (one walk) over the previously undefeated Sandy Springs Storm.  Peyton Kanaly (Pitcher) led the team to victory in the semi-final against the Columbus Storm, an A level tournament team that beat the Elite in pool play earlier in the day.  Stellar defense throughout the tournament was provided by Lane Brickley, Katie White, Antonia Martinez, Helena Harris and Lindsey Broadway.  Allie Ohde and Olivia Bontempo burned up the base paths with too many stolen bags to count.  Logan Easterly, Annabelle Lawson, and Maura Mcbreen pounded out the hits to keep the offense rolling.  Congrats to the 12U Elite!
