How to Survive a Softball Weekend....

How do 12 teenage girls survive six softball games in 32 hours?

....well, first of all - you laugh alot!

....and you share your IPod earphones with your bestest buddy between games - while you text your boyfriend and try to convince him to drive an hour (one way) to watch you play. make goofy faces and pose for photos.

...and try to grab a quick nap in the shade before game number 3. celebrate an exciting win in Game 4! (After committing an error early in the game - Kelli came through with a bases clearing double in the 5th inning). try to find a spot in the shade to eat and rest during a four-hour break.

...and you work crossword puzzles in the latest PEOPLE magazine - with a little help from your team mates.

....then you come to the realization that you'll have to win 3 games - back to back to back to take the trophy. Between innings, you cheer on your team mates from your favorite perch.

The sun is beating down and you face off against a tough team from DeKalb - who you defeat in probably the best played game of the tournament - 3-1. manage to make it all the way to the Final Four before being defeated 1-0 in the Semi Final Game. What a great weekend! We're so proud of each and every one of you!!! Let's do it again next weekend!
