AWAY Lake Zurich Games on Sunday May 5th Updated 4/29/2013

We want to thank everyone for having the patience necessary this spring to get through this crummy weather that has started the softball season.  We seem to be making a turn with our luck as we just had a great week of weather and are hopeful that this trend will continue. The Lake Zurich games on May 5th at Lake Zurich and then June 9th in Palatine are a great way for your children to experience how other 3rd/4th grade leagues play softball while having a small taste of what travel softball is all about. We are excited about the opportunity for the girls to experience this opportunity.  Unfortunately, Lake Zurich was only able to field 7 teams therefore we do have 1 team that will not be playing on the 5th. However, since we will be playing at home on June 9th, Miami will have the first pick of the games that will be played against Lake Zurich.

Thank you again to the coaches, parents and players for making this a great event for the girls!

Schedule of Games:

Palatine Kansas v. Lake Zurich Wolverines  (12pm @ Staples)
Palatine Colorado State v. Lake Zurich Sun Devils  (12pm @ Chestnut Corners)
Palatine Oklahoma State v. Lake Zurich Buckeyes  (12pm @ Heritage Oaks)
Palatine Arizona State v. Lake Zurich Tar Heels   (2pm @ Staples)
