West Cobb eXtreme – Taliaferro played in the USSSA March Madness tournament on Saturday, March 24. The girls had a blast in their first “stay in a hotel” tournament. A long break in the game times allowed for bonding time with the girls and parents at a local restaurant. Late night swimming and elevator shenanigans are a must for these trips. The girls don’t realize it now, but these are the memories that will stay with them forever!
The team went 2-2 for the weekend in a tough bracket. eXtreme finished middle of the pack at 7th place. Every loss is a learning experience and to grow and improve, you must lose some tough battles. The girls learned that losing is part of the game and that you must lose with grace and dignity. Now, it’s time for the hard work to get ready for the next tournament on April 14th.
The MVP this weekend is Danni Simpson. She came up with clutch hits and was solid behind the plate. She had a .375 average with 2 doubles and 4 RBIs on the weekend. Way to go, Danni!
