A fun end to a great ballgame last night, with the successful execution of a called pitch-out and caught stealing at second for the last out.
Everything has to go right. Pitcher (Abigale Krepelka) and Catcher (Olive Colby) have to be on the same page with their signs, Pitcher has to deliver to a moving target, Catcher has to catch and unload clean, and Shortstop (Makena Santos) has to catch and lay down the tag.
Great play all around, girls!
If you have a highlight from practice, school or your games you can submit them on our highlights page here.

Thanks for the great summer, our coaches wanted to share a few final words before wrapping up and heading towards fall ball, thanks again to everyone who played, coached and supported our Mountain Dream teams.
For those who were unaware SLVGS has a tournament ball program called Mountain Dream.
SLVGS provides this fall season to give girls an opportunity to challenge themselves, build skills and have fun.
SLVGS is dedicated to giving year round play opportunities to our community.
We have just finished the Summer season and are now looking to form the Fall Ball teams.
This year we plan on having divisions for our 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U ages.
We are holding tryouts Saturday Aug 25th:
ALL TRYOUTS will be at SLVMS
14U – 9 am
12U – 10:30 am
10U – 12:00 pm
8U – 1:30 PM
If your daughter would like to play but cannot make tryouts, if you are not sure if it is a good fit, or want more information please email email@example.com and we can answer any questions you might have.
The goal of SLVGS Mountain Dream is to improve the quality of play for all the girls in our area. The majority of girls that play on the SLV Middle School and High School teams have been in the Mountain Dream program at some point in their youth softball career.
It’s amazing to see the improvement in the skill level for the players after they’ve been through a season.
After fall ball, we encourage the girls to bring their experiences back to the rec program and thus completing the cycle of improving the quality of play for all the girls.
Thank you and hope to see you on the fields Aug 25th.
Thanks to all members of SLVGS and everyone who joined and watched the 4th of July Parade.
We were excited to share our enthusiasm for softball and team spirit and look forward to more members joining, both experienced players and young ladies who have never played before are welcome. Come join the fun!
