Magic 12B Team Plays ASA Western Nationals in Medford, OR
Our Magic 12B team played tremendous softball all week in Medford, enduring tough conditions including record heat and smoke from nearby fires. Among many highlights, the team finished 7 innings against Thousand Oaks with the game tied 1-1. Magic scored a run in the top of the 8th with the international tiebreaker, but allowed a 2-run rally by the eventual tournament champs to lose a heartbreaker 3-2. Yet the Magic brought their best to this event and knocked off several powerful Southern California programs. A great 7-game run in Western Nationals as the team ended Elimination bracket play with a 3-2 record.
Magic 14B Black Wraps Great Summer at Queen of Diamonds
Congratulations to the Magic 14B Black roster for a fantastic finish to their summer schedule at the Queen of Diamonds tournament July 25-26. They went 3-0 in pool play and battled all the way to the championship game playing 4 games in a row back-to-back with little or no break. In bracket play they had to come back in two of their 3 games in their final at bat to advance to the next round. The first game went two international tie breakers before finally winning it on a Maygen Valkanoff walk off base hit. The semi-final game the girls were down 3-0 in their last ups and rallied for an exciting 4-3 win. Julia Meacham and Cassie King hit back to back home runs to start of the inning and draw them within 1. Taylor Cervantes tripled home the tying run and Gaby Guevara hit the game winning walk off sacrifice fly to send Magic to the championship game. Unfortunately after being on the field and battling hard for 7 straight hours the girls ran out of gas and lost the championship game taking 2nd place out of 15 teams at the Queen of Diamonds tournament. Well played ladies and coaches!
