LTMS hosted an 8th Grade A team tournament this past weekend. St. Andrews defeated Gorzycki in the finals. Pool play was only 2 games to 15 and we split with both of those finalists! A 3-way tie for 2nd in our pool sent us to the consolation bracket.
With bases loaded and two outs, Kristen makes this catch to end Texas Instinct 99’s rally. Impact Gold went on to win the game 6-3 and play in the finals of the Taylor USSA. They lost in the finals and took 2nd place.
I was there at every game but putting this highlight video together, I realized how much I missed. What a great season she had.
