We are STATE RUNNERS-UP!
Today was another grueling set for Brittany and her all-star team. THREE games... (9:00, 11:00, and 1:00)
Game 1: A re-match against the RI Thunder travel team: this time we hung on for a 3-2 win.
Britt struck out twice (there was a good share of whiffs on both ends).
Game 2: An 8-3 win over North Kingstown. Britt went 0-4 (three whiffs and a ground out back to the pitcher).
Game 3: THE FINALS - we were blown away, 11-1, against the Appanoag A team (another travel team). Britt didn't start, but came in as a late inning replacement and walked.
The two finalists (the Appanoag A team and Britt's team) will be representing Rhode Island in less than two weeks in the regionals that will take place in Lowell, Massachusetts.
These girls have a lot to be proud of - nine games in four days and finishing 7-2. Now they get a much deserved rest.
