May Update:


Win for Warriors tournament in North Laurel MD - hero dogs who served our military were the beneficiaries of this tournament.  In our first game, we won by run rule 17 - 3 which was a total team victory.  Everything was firing on all cylinders as we hit well, ran the bases agressively, and played great defense.  Our pitching was money as well.  In the second pool play game, we fell by one run after almost 3 hours of rain delay along with the sunlight fading fast.  It was a very exciting game against a really good team.  We played great under the wet and sandy conditions but fell just short.  In Championship play on Sunday, we run ruled the first team 12 - 1, again playing lights out.  In the second game we fell to the Terror 12 - 6 and were eliminated.  It was a competitive game but we had one error filled inning that doomed us.  All in all, we went farther than our last tournaments and are demonstrating that we can play with anybody in our division!  Go LACE!



April Update:

We played in our first tournament, Angels 4 Austism 4/21.  We tied the first two games.  In Championship play, we lost by 2 runs to the eventual tournament Champions.  Throughout the tournament, our hitting was outstanding and our pitching was solid.  We can't wait for the next tournament.

Formed in August 2017.  

Team will be playing in local tournaments this Spring and Summer.  We are also planning one away tournament in PA where we will spend a day at Hersey Park as well!  We have spent the winter working out at Redline Athletics facility and Rip City. 

At Redline, Coach George Rumore from Lake Braddock High School has been running clinics for kids from CYA, BRYC and NVGSA.  Lake Braddock is one of the top programs in the state and we were lucky to have this opportunity.

At Rip City, we are doing our traditional team winter workout.  This involves indoor hitting, fielding, throwing and lots of conditioning work!

We are excited to get the spring season started and can't wait to hit the diamonds in March.
