All Stars Update: Next week our 10U gold team, Heat and our 14U gold team, Warriors will be concluding their season when they compete against the best of the best in the Western National Championships. Heat will be competing locally (well, semi-locally) in Moorpark at Arroyo Vista Community Park (4550 Tierra Rejada Rd). Their pool games are scheduled for Tuesday (7/23) at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm and Wednesday (7/24) at 3:00 pm. Wednesday night our players will compete in a skills competition against players from the other 44 teams at the tournament.
Warriors will be competing in Redding, CA. Their schedule hasn’t been announced yet but when it is we will get it posted to our website. If you are vacationing near Redding they would love to see you in the stands cheering them on.
Good luck to both teams. We are so proud of them for their amazing season and we know they will proudly represent Sierra Madre Girls Softball next week! Go Madre!!
