The Xtreme won four of five games at the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association (GRPA) fast-pitch softball state tournament in Carrollton on July 10 to walk away as the state champions.
The Xtreme started the tournament by blowing out Butts County 19-2.
“You are always a little nervous when you face a team you know nothing about, but our girls did not show any signs of being nervous,” coach Shane Lee said. “They came on the field ready to play. It was a good start.”
In the second game they faced a familiar foe in the Cedartown Top Dawgs. But the Xtreme had little trouble in this game, cruising to a 14-3 victory.
Next up was Bremen, but they would not be a challenge to the Xtreme either as the local team won 20-3.
The championship game was played last Saturday and the Xtreme was once again playing the Top Dawgs. The Xtreme only had to win once to win state while the Top Dawgs needed to record two victories.
The Top Dawgs won the first game 9-7, but the Xtreme proved to be too much in game two and won 8-4.
“This is a great feeling and these young ladies have played with the determination of champions all tournament,” Lee said. “We could not be more proud of a team than this one. They work hard every day and they do what we ask of them. Their hard work and dedication to the game they love has paid off.”
Members of the Xtreme are Lizzie Lee, Autumn Scofield, Tia Covington, Maddie Bowman, Blair Bedford, Skylar Rogers, Tamara Brown, Amber Timms, Josie Allen and Shana Abram.
