The game was on Friday night during the Phyllis Rafter Memorial Tournament, hosted by the Owls. The five-team tournament field included Belmont, Bucknell, Fort Wayne, Kennesaw State and Mercer.

West Cobb Extreme 14U was formally recognized during the game! All players of the team were situated right behind the Owls dugout, and had an up-close view of the action. The game was a hard fought match as the Owls played the Fort Wayne Mastedons. The Owls won the game in the bottom of the 7th, 4-3.

 

West Cobb eXtreme 12U Taliaferro visits Georgia Tech

Thank you to Coach Morales and the Georgia Tech Softball program for hosting the West Cobb eXtreme 12U Taliaferro team on Sunday March 4th. It was an awesome day for the girls and a GT win made it even better!

Sunday afternoon was an absolutely beautiful day for softball. eXtreme 12U players enjoyed a tour of the Georgia Tech clubhouse and the locker room. They were on the Mewborn field for the line-up announcement and stood in their positions during the National Anthem.

Georgia Tech made the experience more exciting with in-stadium fun and games! Aundraya was first up with “Name That Tune” game. How could you not know Treat you Better by Shawn Mendes? We’ll have to make it Aundraya’s walk-up song – Better luck next time! Next up was Aubrey and Abby in a head to head Powerade chugging duel. It was no contest when Abby won hands down. She didn’t take a breath or spill a drop. Way to go Abby! Then, Kyla was put in the press box and announced the GA Tech players in the bottom of the 5th inning. It was a big inning for GA Tech and Kyla got more than she bargained for, but she handled it with skill. Great Job Kyla!

It was a great day with a great group of girls. Lots of T-shirt bombs, foul ball prizes, singing, dancing, free gifts and team bonding. We are looking forward to great season full of fun and exciting times, both on and off the field!
