Impressive debut for TC Xtreme
Tyler County Booster - May 2009
Playing in their first ever post-season competition, the Xtreme (Tyler County’s 8 & Under All-Stars) were impressive, winning two games in the double elimination event before falling to the eventual champion of the 2009 Texas ASA District 38 championship softball tournament in Nacogdoches last weekend. “I’m sure the girls would have liked to advance further but they played well against some strong competition,” said Xtreme coach Brett Smith. “We were one of fifteen teams and there were quite a few that had tournament experience. Taking everything into consideration, we did well and I’m proud of the girls for representing our communities the way they did.” The Xtreme roster was comprised of Desiree Hallo, Kayla Merchant, Kaitlyn Odom, Sidney Smith, Lainey Spradlin, Riley Vaughn, Abby Villa, Leah White, Shannon Whitehead, Eveona Williams, and Shayla Williams. Assisting Smith were coaches Trevor Odom and Andrew Hallo. The Xtreme lost their tournament opener on Saturday to the Lufkin Crush, who would later face the Hudson Stingers in the championship game on Sunday. Forced to play late on Saturday in their next game, the Xtreme rallied to stay alive with a win over the Short Hops. Advancing to Sunday action, the Xtreme came out swinging and defeated Zavalla with a 15-0 run-rule win after 3 innings. In their next game, they faced the Stingers and the Hudson team proved to be strong and experienced as they handed the Xtreme their second loss. “This was a good experience for all our girls,” added Smith. “We played well enough to get to Sunday when a lot of teams didn’t and I hope that they are as proud of what they did as I am.”
