March 07, 2020, Rockmart, GA – The Extreme 12U 07 travel softball team had another good outing on Saturday! The team took home it’s second straight 1st place trophy in the 2020 GSA “March Madness” Tournament, held at Nathan Dean Park.
It was a cold day but the team played well, with exceptional pitching, solid hitting, smart base running, and strong defense. Extreme 07 came out of the pool games undefeated and as the #2 seed. They won the first bracket game and then entered the championship game vs the #1 Seed from the pool play (Atlanta Flames).
Talk about a comeback win to cinch the championship – The Extreme girls were down 7-1 going into the top of the final inning . . . Thankfully, the bats came alive and the team rallied with 7 runs taking the score to 8-7!
Then Extreme had to protect the fragile 1 run lead in the bottom of the inning – Which the defense did exceptionally well: 3 up, 3 down. The final out, which gave the entire crowd a “hold your breath” moment, happened when the center fielder tracked a deep fly ball and it landing securely in her glove! The team went 5-0 for the day! Way to go EXTREME 07!
