Atomic Boom! Congratulations to the Explosion Select who finished as the Runner-up in the 18u Gold Division of the USA Tennessee B State Championship/Wounded Warriors Benefit from 6/25/21-6/27/21. In a rain shortened event, the Select were in the process of playing the Georgia Elite Venom in the Winner's Bracket Final when a torrential rain storm came and flooded the field, essentially ending the tournament. The Select lost the overall runs allowed battle 5-4 to the Elite. Great job Elite and Select, we are very proud of your efforts!
For the tournament, the Select was led by Stacie Mills (.833 BA), Alexis Folts (.714 BA), Olivia Mahoney (.667 BA) and Tori Coffman who hit a huge 3-Run Home Run in the Semi-Final Game against the BC Pride (Southern New York/Northern Pennsylvania). Pitching was led by a no hitter against the Mokena Blast (Chicago, IL) and recorded a total of 24 Ks in 9.1 innings pitched. Great job ladies, we are very proud of you efforts and your continued development!
Also a shoutout to Missy Jones of USA Softball, her support staff and umpires as they did a great job of attracting top teams from all over the US to play in this tournament including (18) 18u teams in older division. We really appreciate your efforts with this tournament!
