After winning the South Zone Tournament on May 20, the team went to play in the state tournament in Grand Prairie this past weekend. The night of June 1, there were no games, but there was a team swim party and awards were given out. On June 2, the team had two games and won both. They came in third in the tournament - which means third in the state for their age-group. They had a wonderful time, and so did the parents.
Here are some photos of the picnic dinner for the team between the two games on Saturday.
After the picnic dinner, all the teammates and some of their siblings were taken back to the ball field for the second game.
Here's what Anne's car looked like! All the vans and trucks and cars were painted up like this!!
Parker was given the game ball for the second game; he made the hit that brought in the winning run. That game ended with a 7-6 score. He's flanked by his teammates, "Mo" on his right and Blake on his left.
This morning, in the hotel lobby, Coaches Kelly and Mike gave out the awards for the Red Sox team's third-place status. Coaches and families are all very proud of this team.
