The 2014 NYO Fall Fastpitch season came to an exciting end Saturday and Sunday, November 1-2, 2014, with three well-played tournaments.  In the Fall Rookie league, the Orange Dolphins topped the Pink Crushers in the tournament championship on Sunday afternoon.  In the Fall Minors, the Royals were able to accomplish what the major league Royals could not -- finishing off with a win in the final game, beating the Pink Chaos 7-5.  In the Fall Majors, the Killer Cotton Candies put two runners on with two outs in the bottom of the last inning, but the Cyclones held them off for a thrilling 5-4 win.

Thanks to all the parents, coaches and players for being a part of NYO Fastpitch this fall.  The girls showed great spirit and sportsmanship in their play this weekend.  We hope to see everyone in the spring of 2015!

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.
