    Pardon me while I brag a bit

    Proud of my niece tonight. She pitched a complete game for the second night in a row, this time a 1-0 beauty. And she knocked home the only run. Way to go, Whitney!!!  21-3 this year.  Plays the best team in the area Saturday.  Whitney and her club the only team/pitcher to beat them in conference play.

    She pitched again today in the supersectional game against a local 31-3 team and the state champs last year.  Whitney had beat them earlier this year.  She drove in the first run to give herself a 1-0 lead to protect.  Glenwood came back to tie with a runner on 2nd on a ball that just eluded the 3B and SS in the hole.  If SS could have knocked it down, runner might have held at 3rd with the lead intact.

    Remembering she drove in the only run in her 1-0 game a few days ago, this was two beautiful games back to back for her.  Actually three, having won a game 3-2 in extra innings a few days before that.

    Back to today.  Game went to the 9th.  Whitney led off the bottom half with a hit and her courtesy runner scored the winning run to win supersectional.  On to state!!!  Way to go, Whitney!!!  So proud of you, girl!!

    Congrats to your niece Nomads. In a related story, the star pitcher of a team trying to repeat as the girls softball state champs here in Ohio was arrested the day before the final games for shop lifting some crap. Girl has (or had) a full scholarship to some D-1 school.  Talk about bad judgement.

    That gets a little easier ever year since KW and WIN NOW.  I thought this guy might turn it around, but there is too much to overhaul in one season.
