Quick Tourney Update

We've been living softball since Wednesday, so I apologize for the non-activity on my side of things here. Will be back to normal blogging status this weekend! LOL

A quick update then...

On Wednesday, we lost 3-2 to a team from Texas and won 8-0 over a team from south Alabama. (both of these were in "pool" play, meaning they don't matter to our tournament record)

On Thursday, we entered elemination round. (If you lose twice, you're out!) We started off with a loss of 2-1 to another team from Texas, but then rebounded in a big way winning 20-0 to a team from Tennessee.

So, we're still in it! But today is do-or-die! If we lose, we're out of it. We play at nine (it's 6 am--way too early for me!!!--and we'll be heading out in about thirty minutes). If we win, we play at 3; then if we win again, we play at 5. It will be a tough day either way--we'll be exhausted if we keep winning and we'll be disappointed if we lose.

The first two days were tough because we lost each of our games by just a point. Our defense was great, holding our opponents to such low scores, but we still didn't win. We should have won them all! But that's how the games go sometimes!

Anyway....

it's really hot,
we're spending a lot of time on the road,
but still Softball Rules! (since you guys all know how crazy I am about any sports. And especially when it's a daughter playing!!!)

Update later tonight! Have a GREAT Friday!!!!!!
