The DG Rebels 12U-SR team took 2nd Place in the Gold Division at the BRW Blast Spring Thing Tournament this past weekend.  The girls went 3-0 in pool play, scoring 29 runs while only giving up 3 to enter bracket play as the overall top seed.  With strong pitching, solid defense, and timely hitting, the girls defeated two very good teams in bracket play to make it to the Championship Game.  We were edged out in the Championship Game by a hot hitting team, but we never gave up in true Rebels spirit!

DG Rebels went 4-0 to capture the SWS 12U A Tournament Championship.  Keeping with their custom, the Rebels fell behind early in each of their last three games, but fought back to win.  The Rebels scored three runs in their last at bat to secure two of those victories, including the championship game, which required the infield defense to secure the last out with the bases loaded to preserve an 8-7 thriller.  Every girl contributed throughout the weekend on both offense and defense in a total team effort.  These Rebels reinforced the mantra that defense -- and Speed and Control! -- wins championships.

Congratulations to the Downers Grove Rebels 16U on being crowned the 2016 Park Ridge Pistols Invite Champions! They defeated the Winfield Wolverines in a battle of the number 1 and 2 seeds. While the weather looked threatening Sunday morning, the day turned out to be perfect for Championship softball. For the Rebels, playing shorthanded meant that most girls were on the field for all innings of all games.  They demonstrated focus, team work and sportsmanship.  They supported each other and came back from several deficits and never gave up.  The pitching was superb, the hitting got stronger each game and the defense was excellent.
