The girls made it to the Championship game on Sunday, but fell short to a much more experienced 12U team.  We took home the second place silver trophy.  Our girls played hard and never gave up.  They hit the ball all afternoon, unfortunately right at the opposition who made some spectacular (and some lucky) defensive plays.  MVP's were won during the Tournament by Sofia Storrs, Jessica Cagney, and Stephanie Rochowicz (who hit the team's first home run of the season).

Congratulations 2016 Downers Grove Rebels High School Players!

After a memorable regular season with far more highlights than low, the 10u DG Rebels [Trakas] entered the year ending South West Suburban Tournament as the second seed.  The girls then caught fire at the right time going undefeated in each of their contests.  The team was bolstered by their best pitching of the year with the Rebel arms allowing just three runs during their five game stint.  Facing heated competition versus teams from Yorkville, Woodridge and the top seeded Lemont Lightning, the Rebels stuck to their season long mantra of “playing their game” to great success.  
Congrats to the girls and their families on a whole year of hard work and dedication.
