Due to rain, more impending weather, and field conditions, today’s practice has been canceled. We hope to see you at practice on Wednesday evening for open cages beginning at 5:00PM.
Just a reminder that we are meeting at 5:30PM at North High to depart for the Lakeshore Rise tournament in Two Rivers. Any parents that are driving up and would be willing to take other players, please meet at North as well. If you are meeting us up in Two Rivers, please be there by 6:45 to get your uniform so we can be ready to warm up at 7:00 for our 8:00 game. The weather may be cool, so if you care to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath, please make sure it is white. Also, all players are responsible for their own navy socks. The ones you were issued for the season will work just fine. We have 16 players for Friday night and we only have 15 pairs of matching pants. If you were on the JV team and have yet to turn your game pants in, please bring them on Friday.
I found out a few days ago that we will be batting the entire roster. I am not a fan of this as I think it makes a mockery of the game. Anyway, that means, with 16 players, you may only get one at bat per game. I’m sorry for this. We also only have a 1 hour and 15 minute time limit. I plan on coaching the best I can to go for the win as well as get everyone some field time if the situation allows for it. Thanks in advance for understanding.
Hopefully we’ll see you tomorrow night!
Below are the directions from Sheboygan to Neshoto Park in Two Rivers, which is where all of our games will be played this weekend.
I-43 North to Hwy. 42 (Waldo Blvd.)
Follow Hwy. 42 through downtown Two Rivers
Turn Right on 22nd Street (Pizza Hut)
Take 22nd Street to Pierce Street
Turn Right. Park is on Left.
Please note that there will be limited concessions at this park.
Just a reminder that we will be meeting at North Diamonds at 5:30PM on Friday. See you then.
This post contains a lot of information about the Lakeshore Rise Tournament coming up next weekend. Our first game is on Friday, July 25 at 8:00PM versus Merton Fillies and our second game is on Saturday, July 26 at 12:30PM versus Hartland Lady Hawks. Both of these games are in pool play. After the games are decided, we will be placed into bracket play. The 1, 2, and 7 seeds will not play until Sunday. The 3-6 seeds will play another game on Saturday night (either 6:30 or 8:00). Once we get into bracket play, a loss will eliminate us. So, there is a chance (hopefully not) that we will not be playing on Sunday. ALL the games are at Neshotah Park in Two Rivers. I will get directions to you in another upcoming post. If players need rides, we will be meeting at the North Diamonds at 5:30PM on Friday. We will also be handing out uniforms at that point. If you can’t make it to North and will be meeting us up at Two Rivers, please be there by 7:00PM. We will be using the JV Uniforms from this past year (white tops and Navy Pants). All players are responsible for their own pair of long navy socks (the ones from this past season will work).
Currently, this is the list of players we have signed up to play this weekend. If you are not on this list and want to play, please let me know. Also, if you are on this list and cannot play, also please let me know.
Van Der Puy, Abby
Dulmes, Hazel (possibly not on Friday)
Prestley, Becky (until 4:30PM on Saturday)
Warden, Jenna (not Saturday)
Also…if anyone knows someone that has experience catching and they want to play next weekend, please let me know. That is one position we are really struggling with.
If you have any questions, please contact me (email@example.com or 920-889-1040) as soon as possible.
We will be taking down the outfield fences on both softball fields tomorrow beginning at 11:00AM. The weather should be great, so I don’t anticipate any problems. If you are able to help, we would love to see you tomorrow morning. With a good number of hands, this project shouldn’t take more than an hour.
We hope to see you tomorrow morning at 11:00!
If you are able to play in the Lakeshore Rise tournament the weekend of July 25-27, please let Coach Lenz or Coach Utley know as soon as possible. Our schedule is yet to be determined, but we want to confirm who will be on our roster.
Also…there are still several spots open on the Concession Stand sign up. Please go to the Sign Up Genius web page to help us out. We are averaging more than $200 per week in the concession stand and we don’t get that revenue if we have nobody signed up to work.
If you are interested and/or able to play in a scrimmage/game against the Lakeshore Rise on the evening of Tuesday, July 8, please let either Coach Lenz (920-889-1040) or Coach Utley (319-415-1128) know via call or text. We will be playing their 18U team so girls who turned 18 either on or after July 1, 2014 are eligible.
Let us know as soon as possible. Thanks!
Due to weather conditions, Open Cages for this evening have been cancelled. Open Diamonds will again be held on Sunday evening from 4:00-6:00.
The Batting Cages will be open every Wednesday from 5:00PM-6:15PM for anyone that wants to come and get some swings in. This will be every Wednesday during the summer. Stop and by and take advantage of it!
This is just a reminder to ALL players at ALL levels that the softball diamonds will be open for you to work on whatever you choose tomorrow (Sunday) from 4:00-6:00PM. We understand that this is Father’s Day, so if you are unable to come, please make sure to enjoy the day with your fathers!!!!
