14U-Brett headed up north to Reno, NV to participated in the "Triple Crown World Series" as they finish up play for the 2019 spring/summer season. Leading up to the TCWS this team has had a very competitive season with some tournament wins and 2nd place finishes.
As 14U Brett started off bracket play in the world series tournament they found themselves off to an unusually slow start. They lost their 1st two games right off the bat, however they were able to light a fire after that, to go on a winning streak. They ended bracket play with a 2-2 recored, placing them in the silver bracket for the elimination rounds.
The first day of eliminations rounds 14U- Brett started and finished the day with two wins, allowing them to see another day of competion. The following day Storm needed to win one game in order to move them up into the championship bracket, they were succesful. They now found themselves within the top eight teams competing to make it to the championship game in the silver division. Storm faced off against California Cruisers in a competitive game where they found themselves in the lead majority of the game. Unfortunately the Cruisiers were able to manufacture runs in the later inning to defeat 14U Brett with a final score of 5-7.
14U Brett finished with a recored of 6-3 and within the top 24 teams out 82 teams in the tournament. What a fantastic showing!!!! It was a totally team effort, the pitching staff was extremely reliable and relaxed knowing that the defense was on point and had their back, at the plate all the players contributed in manufacturing runs and having each others back.
A season is really gauged on how you started and how you finished the season. Looking back to the fall season and how now the 14U-Brett finished the season at TCS-Reno we can be very pleased with the strides that they made during that time.
They are still a very young group that is maturing into a solid group that will compete at a high level starting in the fall.
Coach Brett and Coach Mo want to thank all of the players and parents for all of their hard work, patience, and continued belief throughout the season.
