Mayhem 13U had an amazing weekend in the Toys for Tots Tournament. The girls went 4 and 1 for the weekend winning the championship and bringing home the hardware. Special shoutout to Ellie G. who pitched both bracket games totaling 13 strikeouts and only giving up 4 hits over 2 games. The girls came together and really bonded as a team. Which definitely showed on the field. The girls next tournament is Jan 18, 2019 in Centralia.
Our girls had an amazing time hanging out with Alaska Air pilots, learning what it takes to become a female pilot. They toured parts of the plane that are not often seen by the general public, learned what it takes to become a pilot, and heard about the camaraderie of being a female pilot (only 6% of commercial pilots are female!) They were even given a history lesson about the WASPS from WWII. The best part was all the girls getting to fly in the training simulator! The bond this team has built on and off the field going in to this season is going to be exciting to watch!
The Mayhem 18U team traveled to Las Vegas for their first tournament of the 2017 season to knock some rust off their game. One problem... Mother Nature kicked everyone's butt. We were only able to play three games due to rain. Disappointed as they were, the girls played well and are looking forward to the rest of the season.
