The USA PRIDE 16U girls fastpitch softball team placed 2nd in the Triple Crown World Series National Championship.
The week long tournament, held in Reno Nevada July 24-28, hosted close to 85 teams. It was a very intense tournament with the Pride playing 11 games over five days. USA PRIDE came on strong with an overall record of seven wins and two losses to reach the championship game. Every win was hard fought with victories over EC Heat (Montana), San Diego Force, TC Detonation (Utah), SoCal Storm, Tri County Smash, Sparks Storm (NV) and SoCal Rage.
The nail-biting championship game was a heart stopper, losing 2-1 to TNL from San Diego in a double extra inning international tie breaker.
“Overall our athletes played some extremely technical fastpitch softball and performed more than just a team … more like a family,” said head coach Lawrence Divinagracia.
