Char-Meck Softball Champions

MARA Softball Teams Are Char-Meck Softball Champions!!!

MARA Softball finished the Spring 2019 season as Char-Meck Softball Champions in the 8U, 10U, and 13U divisions!!!

The 8U Division had field of 26 teams in the Char-Meck League. The four 8U MARA teams entered the End of Season tournament as: #2 Fillies, #6 Stampede, #9 Chargers, and #18 Blazers. 3 of the 4 teams went deep into the tournament before being knocked out. The #2 seed Fillies with Head Coach Mike Lawrence went into the losers bracket with a loss in their 3rd tournament game. The team came back to win 3 straight games beating the winners bracket team twice to win the Championship. 

 

Similarly, the four 10U teams entered the End of Season tournament seeded: #1 Fillies, #3 Blazers, #6 Mavericks, and #10 Stampede. All 4 teams played well into the tournament before ending up playing and eliminating each other. #3 Blazers knocked out the #10 Stampede. #6 Mavericks elminated the #3 Blazers and #1 Fillies and other teams to get to the Championship game. The Mavericks won Monday night to force the IF game. They won the Championship tonight with over 50 members of the MARA Softball Family cheering them on. 

 

The MARA 13U teams went into the tournament as #4, #8, and #9 seeds out of 18 teams. The #4 Blazers and #8 Fillies went deep into the tournament but was knocked out after tough games. The #9 seeded Stampede charged through the winners bracket winning 5 straight games to bring home the Championship. 

 

In all of the championship games, the MARA Softball Family showed what it means to be part of MARA and turned out en mass to support our ladies to bring home the Championships.
