Congrats to Mamee. You could tell a few years ago when she was still in middle school that she had "it."

Yeah. Sorry about that...I was in a hurry to get that posted and must've overlooked that selection. My bad. Don't remember it right off hand though.

 

As far as the game itself, I thought Ryle looked like they wanted it more today as they were all business on the field (the Conner players and coaching staff seemed to be more worried about how loud the cheering section was from the bleachers) and were more aggressive at the plate. Each team had some shaky defense so I don't think that really played as much of a factor one way or the other.

 

Cassie Hamilton put an early dagger in the hearts of the Lady Cougars as she blasted a home run over the left-center field wall in the fourth to put the Lady Raiders up 3-1. Ryle would then tack on three more in the inning.

 

Congrats to BOTH teams on a well played tournament. I think I heard this was the fourth-consecutive year these two schools have met in the finals and with the young, but really good pitching for both, they could very easily be playing in the finals the next 5 years as well. This region is loaded with young pitching talent...seems like the transition from the slo-pitch game is starting to take a turn for the better for some of the schools.

 

Best of luck to the Ryle HS Lady Raiders at state!

Best of luck Ryle down state, you guys defiantly earned it. I am still a little bitter that you were able to pull it out against my Indians but I will be pulling for you at State.

 

Kinda funning how Ryle's easiest game came in the finals. Both Highlands and Holy Cross both had them on the ropes.
