Thunder Lower the Boom at Thunderstorm 2021
The fourth annual Thunderstorm event, Thunderstorm 2021, is in the books.
With thirty-five teams playing more than 80 games, and crowning six division Champions, it’s been a busy few days to say the least. But Thunder Fastpitch did their part, delivering three division titles, one runner-up and a host of semi-finalists.
Here are a few of the highlights:
- First Year Teams:
- 11u White collected their first ever win, first tournament win, and first tournament Championship!
- 10u Black and 10u Teal collected their first tournament wins!
- 9u, 12u Teal and 13u White competed hard in their first ever tournament action!
- 14u and 16u Teal earned their team’s first ever tournament wins and competed down to the wire in their bracket games!
- Returning Teams:
- 13u Teal took second place to keep their string of top three finishes in tact!
- 13u Black had a great run but fell in the semi-finals to the eventual Champion by one!
- 11u Teal earned their first ever #1 tournament seed by going undefeated in Pool Play!
- Despite being short-handed due to injuries, 12u Black competed in every game (winning comfortably or losing by no more than 2 runs)! -
- 11u Black had easily the most ridiculous comeback I’ve ever witnessed in a softball game to advance to the final, then won their first ever tournament Championship while the Arlington Park fireworks went off overhead!
- 16u Black defended their previous 14u championship one year to the day, getting revenge against a team that beat them in Pool Play to win their first Championship of the season!
