Good luck to our girls

I want to wish good luck to our Kelly's 16s as they finish up their spring activities--final tests and projects at school, state tennis, district track, company dance recitals--and all the other things that our girls are involved in!

I am glad that so many of our girls are involved in other activities, but I'm also glad that some of them are ending because that means it's time for SOFTBALL GAMES!

Kelly's Tournament--May 21-22

We are very excited to host our own tournament this summer! We have 7 teams in the 16U division; we're hoping to get one more to complete the bracket! The 12s and 14s are full, we have 3 openings left in the 10U division and 1 left in the 18U division.

Teams in the 16U division are: Kelly's, Loup Valley, Fremont Fierce, Canada, Nebraska Gators, Columbus Lakeview, and South Dakota Extreme.

Brackets and game times should be available very soon. Please understand that we will really need help from all of our parents this weekend. Whenever your daughter is not playing, we'll need your help on the fields, selling T-shirts, or keeping book and score up in the crow's nest.

Please be on the lookout for a Google form that you can use to sign up for jobs and times!

Please Check Your Calendars

Please take a look at your summer calendars and make sure we know of any dates that your daughter will not be available to play. Here are the dates that I'm aware of that we will have players gone:

May 21-22 (Kelly's Tournament) Marlie Voss gone

June 2 (Game vs Dodge at Leigh) Maggie B, Hannah N, & Cheyenne gone (that leaves us with only 9--everyone MUST be there or we'll have to forfeit!)

June 11 (Wayne Tournament) Sidney Kassmeier possibly gone Saturday morning

June 21 (Game or Practice--not sure) Maggie B gone

July 1-3 (Lincoln Tournament) Sydney Konz gone
