They did it!
Punky's team won the season's championship!
And they did it with style!
They have beaten every team they've played this summer, except for one...'The Blues.'
They've come close every time.
The first game they lost by one in extra innings.
The second game (last Thursday) they tied after an extra inning.
Then today, they lost to them by one point in the battle of the unbeatens...thankfully it was a double elimination tournament.
The girls won the rest of their games and ended up in a rematch for the season's championship game. The girls ended up beating The Blues by three in a nail biter!
What a great way to end the season.
And Punky did great! As a kindergartner, she was relegated to bench warmer...but in this league after there are three outs you can substitute the bench warmers in for the starters and then everyone else on the team gets to bat. (It's great experience for these girls). Anyway, Punky did awesome! She went 4 for 6 with only one strike out. She made it to home plate (didn't score because there were already three outs) a couple of times and made some great plays at second base!
We're so proud of her.
Not because she did such a great job (although we certainly are proud of that.) But because she stuck it out and tried her best. She is the smallest girl on her team, but she didn't let that stop her from putting forth some herculean effort this season!
Way to go Punky!
