Congratulations Adams Stingers, USSSA Fourteen & under Class C National Champions!

In their third year together, the Adams Stingers Softball Team has achieved an incredible 2017 season ending record of 42-7-1. The girls exceeded their team goal by winning 6 tournaments this year, including USSSA Class C State and USSSA Class C Nationals. One highlight of the season included coming up through the losers’ bracket in the State USSSA Tournament, earning 7 wins that Sunday for the State Championship. That win qualified the girls for USSSA Nationals in Topeka, Kansas. The Adams Stingers played hard and remained undefeated (7-0) at Nationals until playing in the Championship against the Oklahoma Shockers where they lost their first game 0-6, but fought back with a 6-2 win for the National Championship.

Congratulations Adams Stingers for a great season, and a special thanks to the coaches for their dedication!

Tecumseh twelve & under successful season

Tecumseh Boys 12U Baseball team had a successful season with a record of 12 wins and 6 losses. The season had a rocky start with the Team losing its first two games by significant margins. The Team met after the second loss and rededicated themselves to doing what was best for the Team. This unselfish attitude won the next seven games in a row for the Team.

Pitching and catching for the season was mainly handled by Cameron Schuster and Jon Duncan. Hayden Huskey and Wyatt Ludemann were called on as relievers. First base duties for the season were handled by Ezra Attebery and Zach Wenzl. Tyler Blessing, Brandon Speckmann and Phillip Kauffman handled most of the other infield duties.

Tecumseh 12 and Under Softball

The Tecumseh 12 and Under Softball team had another stellar season. The girls out scored their league opponents 116 to 5 this year. The league tournament proved to be no different as the girls did not give up a single run on their way to yet another championship. This is the fifth straight year the girls won the league regular season and tournament. Unfortunately the four time defending champs were not able to play in the District #9 tournament in Auburn on June 9-11, but instead had an opportunity to play in a 12 and Under Open Mizuno Quakes Tournament in Lincoln against some of the best teams in Nebraska. The Tecumseh 12 and Under team was the only town team to compete and finished in the top half of the tourney going 2-1-2 over the course of the weekend. Their short season came to a close on June 25 with a record of 16-1-2. The girls and parents were very supportive of the 12 U program and a great group to work with.
