State Champs again!

We win it 3 to 0 but waited to score in top of 7th.  Meredith was first up to bat in the 7th inning, hits a home run bomb over the center field fence.  That was her first home run of the season.  What a way to end a high school career, hitting that amazing shot.  So proud of my girls and the team. 

Meredith was interviewed by a television station and a newspaper after the game.  The newspaper asked her how many home runs have you hit this season?  Uh, that was the first!

So put me in the book, my days as a softball parent are over, but what a way to go out. Back-to-back state championships!

    1. Thanks, Debbie, it is bittersweet but what a way to go out, your last at-bat ever and it is the game-winning home run. I will remember it forever. In fact, I was standing up taking pictures and when I saw it go over the fence, my legs gave out!

    1. Thanks, Angie, my dad just told me he had a premonition that one of the girls were going to do something to win the game. He said it was amazing how "real" it was.
