Western Howard County Fever

WHC Fever '98 (12-U) finished second of 16 teams in the USSSA Back Eyed Susan 12-U Tournament last weekend. The team had a tough battle with the Diamond State (Del.) Swoop in the championship game and came up just a bit short.

The success in the Black Eyed Susan is a result of outstanding hitting by Kellie Schinzel, Emily Dowdall, Alex Cisar, Stephanie Bluhm, Kiley Sweeney and Meghan Jacobs, stellar defense by Miranda Thompson, Casey Magersupp and Carly Clarke and tremendous pitching by Emily Fitzsimmons and Lexi Trail.

By finishing second, the WHC Fever '98 has now earned yet another berth to another World Series event. The team is now qualified for both the 12-U "A" and 12-U "B" World Series along with the ASA Nationals.
