3CV league (Carver, Chanhassen, Chaska, Victoria and new towns of Eden Prairie and Shakopee).
This year our league had 42 teams with 475 youth playing In-House Fast Pitch Softball. We completed the year end tournament week July 14th thru 19th with 67 games that were played on the coldest, rainiest evening of the season, a game being suspended until Saturday because the lights were going to turn off, to having to clear the fields in the championship games because the rain decided to just open up.
With our new format of playing games during the week and the final 3 rounds on Saturday we do need community support. A special Thanks to all for supporting the league and for having tournament games during the week ending with Friday Night and Saturday hosted at Chaska Pioneer fields. Great venue and support from the Chaska’s program.
Friday evening we have the ‘Year-End Bash for our 2nd/3rd grade girls. They play 2 games, have a Freeze and get their medals. What a great turn-out.
On Saturday our games started at 9AM and concluded with the Championship games for all age brackets at 1PM. With the tournament being a Double Elimination tournament, we had 2 of the 4 teams playing a 2nd game to determine who the Champion was. We had many 1 point games and games that had to use the ‘International Tie breaker rule’ to determine who was going to win.
The Final results are:
- Champions Victoria – Poncin
- 2nd Place Chaska Pennertz Gold
- Consolation Chaska Dolan Purple
- Champions Chaska Sutherland
- 2nd Place Victoria – Flemmer
- Consolation Eden Prairie Benson
- Champions Carver Red Ryan
- 2nd Place Chaska Grothe
- Consolation Eden Prairie Huges
- Champions Carver Red Guenther
- 2nd Place Victoria – Endres
